The Conference, whose main theme is Medicinal Plants for Economic Development, will focus on a broad range of topics about medicinal plants and economic development. The Organisers invite original scientific contributions and unpublished results in all areas of medicinal plants and natural products related to the themes of the conference, for presentation as short lectures (15 min) and posters from participants. There will be a limited number of short oral presentations for submitted abstracts. All scientific contributions (including poster presentations) will be subjected to an extensive review process; only high-quality abstracts will be accepted. All accepted abstracts will be available in electronic form on the Society’s webpage, Book of Abstracts as well as published later in a special conference issue and maiden edition of SOMPED Journal. Please note that accepted abstracts which are not presented during the conference because of absence of the presenting author will not be published in Journal.
