The Conference mission is to promote and disseminate the latest scientific advances in all aspects of Phytobacteriology and encourage dialogue and collaboration between researchers. The latest developments in the field, either basic or applied, will be presented and discussed at the conference. Plenary, oral and poster sessions will be held on key topics such as: Epidemiology and Ecology; Omics and Evolution; Control and Integrated Management; Diversity, Taxonomy and Diagnosis; Pathogenesis and Regulation; Disease Resistance and Effector Biology.
Special sessions are planned. The proposal of special sessions may be considered by the Scientific Committee. In this regard, the year 2020 has been designated by the FAO as Plant Health Year. A special session is planned to be organized in collaboration with the FAO with the aim to discuss the role and impact of plant diseases caused by bacteria on plant health world-wide.A number of abstracts presented as poster contributions will be selected for short oral presentation and discussion. The participation of young researchers is strongly encouraged. Reduced registration fees for students and early-career postdoctoral researchers will be available.
