August 6-11 2023    Pirenópolis, Brazil

We are pleased to announce that the global legume community is meeting in-person after five years since our last conference. The 8th International Legume Conference will take place from 6 to 11 August 2023. 

The ILC will be held for the first time in Brazil, a country known for its extraordinary biological and cultural diversity, and home of a lively team of legume researchers. The host city, the colonial town of Pirenópolis, is located at the heart of the diverse and unique Cerrado, a savanna dominated vegetation home to nearly 1300 legume species. 

Many recent scientific achievements on legume knowledge have been boosted by a strong and integrated international community. We are looking forward to warmly welcoming all of you to Brazil, and enhancing collaboration within the legume community.
