Landscape 2021 as online conference

On behalf of ZALF, welcome to the second Landscape conference. It may look a little different this year, however we are looking forward to offering the Landscape 2021 conference online through Converia’s Virtual Venue platform.

The online setting has helped facilitate increased international participation, and we are happy to support more than 400 researchers, experts and scientists from more than 43 countries. Over the 3 days of the conference, 38 Sessions and 10 Masterclasses have been organised to provide a platform for current research in the field of sustainable and resilient agriculture and spark discourse and discussion on what the future of this field holds.

Through the Virtual Venue, we are excited to feature dedicated space for 83 Posters and a Marketplace page. If you are interested in taking the conversation even further than the 3 day conference, you are encouraged to check out the Post-conference workshops, which take place 23 September.

Sound technical? No worries! The Virtual Venue does not require any special software or installations and is completely browser based.
