The 6th International and 15th National Conference on Dynamic Trends in Plant Sciences: Fostering the Environment and Food Security was held from 9 to 11 May 2017 at SBK Women’s University, Quetta, Pakistan. It was co-sponsored by COMSTECH.

The conference was a milestone in the history of Baluchistan as being the first one ever to be conducted on this topic. It offered an occasion for the eminent scholars and researchers to present their work. It proved to be a good platform for interaction and collaboration among scholars from various disciplines related to plant sciences and at the same time provided an opportunity of networking and scholarship from renowned experts from multiple fields in the realm of botanical sciences.

A number of international scholars as well as Pakistani scientists from different parts of the country attended this event. In all about 500 scholars, researchers, scientists and students participated. The conference comprised four sessions with three sessions of plenary lectures which covered five themes (listed below). There were 31 plenary lectures, 2 online lectures from UK, and oral and poster presentations in the fields of Biotechnology, Botany, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences and Microbiology. Eleven speakers from Japan, Malaysia, Nigeria, Turkey and UK delivered their lectures along with twenty renowned scientists from Pakistan.

This event provided an excellent opportunity to the participants to share knowledge and exchange their research findings, ideas, experiences and views on different topics in biological sciences.
