PALMS 2021 starts in


(Timezone: GMT-3)


Welcome to Palms 2021 Virtual Meeting Website!

We are organizing an event full of opportunities for palm researchers to interact scientifically, socially and to build a stronger palm research community! 


Palms 2021 will take place from June 16, 17 and 18, 2021 and we are preparing a diverse and exciting program for the event. Meanwhile, you can check out some of pre-event talks in our Youtube channel

We are committed to make this virtual an even greater opportunity to gather people from all around the world to share their research and interest on palms. We have re-open registration, reduced fees, and open fee exemption call for students to make the event accessible to the largest amount of people. 

In the meeting we will have a combination of live keynote talks, pre-recorded oral presentations, poster sections, live section discussions and parallel meetings offering many opportunities for interaction. All event activities will be centralized in a virtual environment prepared specially for our meeting that includes an auditorium, meeting and discussion rooms and even a lounge area!
