This year's International Conference of the DGP will cover a number of currently very dynamic areas in Plant Nutrition. Each session will be introduced by two key note speakers. Additional talks in each thematic session will be selected from the abstracts. Furthermore, there will be an Open Session with talks selected from all abstracts without thematic restrictions.

Posters will be presented informally in two sessions, giving all poster authors the opportunity to present their own and to visit other posters. The best posters will be awarded a price. Price holders will be announced during the (free) conference dinner.
