International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR2022)

June 20 - June 24


The International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR) is an annual  gathering of up to 1000 scientists whose primary research organism is  the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. This meeting embraces the remarkable contribution that Arabidopsis has made to our understanding of plant science. Information about the past 30 years of ICAR meetings can be found at website for the Multinational Arabidopsis Steering Committee (MASC).

ICAR2022 takes place at the International Conference Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Belfast lies within the beautiful country of Northern Ireland that was used as the backdrop for the Game of Thrones TV show.

ICAR meetings are overseen by MASC but are independently organised without the financial backing of an established society. ICAR2022 is organised by Arabidopsis Events UK with support for abstract submisson and registrations from the Association of Applied Biologists.

Instructions for Abstract Submission

The majority of speakers at ICAR2022 will be selected from submitted abstracts, providing an excellent opportunity for researchers to promote their work on an international stage. This opportunity is especially important for early career scientists.
Abstracts can be submitted in one of 16 categories. Plenary, Concurrent and Workshop Session organisers will select speakers for their sessions from these abstracts. Everyone not selected for an oral presentation will be given the opportunity to present a poster (portrait orientation, A0 size). Delegates can also specifically apply to present a poster.
Abstract submission deadline for oral presentations is March 15th 2022. We will contact delegates with the result of their application prior to the early registration deadline of April 15th. Submission deadline for poster presentations only is April 15th.
