The International Society for Seed Science (ISSS) is a professional organisation of seed scientists, committed to fostering and promoting research, education and communication in the scientific understanding of seeds, in all aspects, pure and applied, from molecular biology to ecology.

The triennial ISSS conference aims to provide a forum for the exchange of information and ideas on seed science and the development of new scientific collaborations. It encompasses the latest research progress in key areas, including: seed development, dormancy, germination, stress tolerance, germplasm preservation, seed ecology, and seed biotechnology to improve seed quality.
