Dear members of the global GA-network,

Dear scientists involved in Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research,

We are proudly announcing the “70th International Congress and Annual Meeting of the Society for Medicinal Plant and Natural Product Research (GA)”, which will take place on August 28-31, 2022 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

It will be the first time a GA meeting is hosted in Thessaloniki, one of the most vivid and historically significant cities of the Balkan peninsula. We believe that GA2022 will bring together renowned scientists from all over the globe and we would be grateful if you could actively participate in this exciting event.

The conference aims at expanding our current knowledge on all aspects of natural product research. The scientific program includes invited key lectures and short lectures, poster sessions, as well as workshops. We hope that after the restrictions imposed by the pandemic for more than two years, we will be able to organize a face-to-face meeting and offer the participants four days of excellent science, a perfect forum for networking and lively scientific discussions, interaction, as well as a fruitful and pleasant stay.
