This meeting entitled "Deepen knowledge in plant pathology for innovative agro-ecology" will take place from the Monday, 29th of May to the Friday, 2nd of June 2017.
It will aim at presenting the most recent advances in the different aspects of Plant Pathology (plant-microbe interactions, epidemiology, population evolution, "omic-based" approaches, cultural management
...) that could contribute to either fundamental or practical progress towards more durable and innovative control strategies.
Several institutions located in Calais (Université du Littoral Côte d'Opale), Lille (Institut Charles Viollette), Reims (Université de Reims Champagne Ardenne), Ghent (Ghent University), Gembloux (Liege University-Gembloux AgroBioTech), Louvain (University of Louvain) will be in charge of the organization.
The meeting will be joint with the 10th SFP (French Society for Plant
Pathology) meeting and is also supported by SFP. We are also working on a joint session during this meeting that will be co-organized with the APS (American Phytopathological Society).
It is with great honour that we announce the appointment of Dr Monica Höfte from Ghent University, Belgium, as Chairman of the meeting's Scientific Committee.
We thank you very much in advance for you attention and are already looking forward to welcoming you in Northern France.
The corresponding web site will be on line in the coming weeks.
