CfP: Online Conference on Plant-Microbe Interaction & their Implication in Agriculture by NIT Rourkela [Nov 16-18]: Submit by Nov 15


The Department of Biotechnology and Medical Engineering, National Institute of Technology (NIT), Rourkela is organizing an Online Conference on Plant-Microbe Interaction their Implication in Agriculture from November 16 to 18, 2020.

National Institute of Technology (NIT) Rourkela is an institution of national importance funded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. NIT Rourkela was established as Regional Engineering College (REC) on August 15, 1961. It is one of the premier national level institutions for technical education in the country. The main objective of the institute is to produce quality engineers and scientists at graduate, post-graduate and doctoral levels in various branches of Engineering and Science.

Conference Objectives

Plant-microbe interaction (PMI) impacts agriculture in various useful ways. By this online platform conference, we intend to delve into various advances in the field that have enhanced our knowledge of PMI and therefore served in the advancement of better agricultural practices. The participants will gain insight into the various advances made in the area and also will be able to showcase their research on an international platform.

The aim of the conference is to create a wonderful ambiance of scientific knowledge for the exchange of ideas. The conference aims at creating more technologies for utilizing plant-microbe interaction for solving agricultural challenges like:

  • Economic food crisis
  • Food shortage
  • Wastage of food resources
  • Easy access to phytopharmaceuticals
  • Treatment of diseases
  • Simplification of agricultural activities among others
