Australasian Seed Science Conference 2020 – Postponed to 5th-9th September 2021

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising and Scientific Committees, we regret to inform you that the Australasian Seed Science Conference 2020 will be postponed until 5th to 9th September 2021 as a result of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 virus. We apologise for the short notice. We have moved as quickly as possible given the rapid escalation and changes regarding the virus and travel related bans being imposed globally and domestically.

Both the Organising and Scientific Committees and the Australian National Botanic Gardens, as host of the conference, have not taken this decision lightly. We want to ensure that we do not put the health of delegates at increased risk as a result of conference-related travel. We also want to ensure that we can deliver a conference that best reflects the breadth and variety of seed science that colleagues around the world are delivering.

Accommodation: If you have booked accommodation for the conference we suggest you contact your hotel directly to cancel and make other arrangements.

The Organising and Scientific Committees would like to extend our appreciation to those who have contributed abstracts and time to developing the conference program. We are disappointed that we will not have the fortune of experiencing it with you this April and hope that we can revisit a revised program together in September 2021.

In the meantime, if you have any queries please contact the conference organisers at [email protected].

Further information will be released on the Conference website –

Kind regards,

ASSC 2020 Organising Committee
