Here are the upcoming events in the field of Forest Mycology and Plant Pathology. Hope to see you all there!
The 2019 Western International Forest Disease Work Conference will be held on 4-7 June 2019 in Estes Park, Colorado. WIFDWC is made up of plant pathologists, mycologists, researchers, and specialists from throughout western Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Annual meetings are held around the western part of the continent and allow for technical transfer, presentation of research, exposure to a wide variety of forest health issues, and professional discussion about the field.
The American Phytopathological Society Annual Meeting on Plant Health 2019 will be on 3-7 August in Cleveland, Ohio. This year’s theme, “Sow, Know, and Grow” seeks to define several things. First, it reflects the breadth of the discipline from applied field work to fundamental and exploratory work. Second, the theme reflects the development of ideas and the expansion of that knowledge (“know” and “grow”) as relates to plant health—all while we “grow” the visibility of the discipline.
The 25th International Union of Forest Research Organizations World Congress will be held in Curitiba, Brazil on 29 September – 5 October 2019. The scientific program for the IUFRO 2019 World Congress will bring together scientists of all ages, from throughout the world, across the full range of forest‐related disciplines, who are engaged in research, education and application of science‐based knowledge to address these challenges and meet the changing needs of our increasingly globalized society. The program will be organized along the following five themes: Forests for People; Forests and Climate Change; Forests and Forest Products for a Greener Future; Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services and Biological Invasions; and Forests, Soil and Water Interactions.
