The 7th International Conference on Plant Cell Wall Biology


June 27-July 1, 2021 @ Sapporo, Japan & ONLINE

Welcome to PCWB2021

Dear Colleagues,


We are pleased to host the International Conference on Plant Cell Wall Biology 2021 (PCWB2021) in Sapporo, Japan from June 27th to July 1st, 2021. PCWB is one of the largest conferences for plant cell wall researchers along with Cell Wall Meeting and Cell Wall Research Conference. To make PCWB2021 fruitful and exciting, we will try a hybrid conference including on-site and online sessions. We will accept oral and poster presentations in both sessions. 

We are grateful to the organizers of Cell Wall Research Conference and Cell Wall Meeting for kindly agreeing to postpone their conferences by one year. These conferences are scheduled as below: 


   Cell Wall Research Conference in East Lansing, MI, USA, June 13-17, 2022 

   Cell Wall Meeting in Malaga, Spain in 2023 

   Plant Cell Wall Biology in 2024 (organizer will be selected in PCWB2021) 

   Cell Wall Research Conference in Vancouver, Canada in 2025 


We thank for giving us an opportunity to hold PCWB2021 and hope that many researchers not only working on plant cell wall but also in related research fields join and enjoy the conference.
