St. Paul, MN - The largest gathering of plant health professionals worldwide will take place during the joint annual meeting of the American Phytopathological Society (APS), Canadian Phytopathological Society (CPS), and the Mycological Society of America (MSA). The joint meeting will be held July 29 August 2, 2006, at the Centre des Congrs de Qubec, Qubec City, Qubec, Canada.
"The scientific program for this year's meeting covers a diverse range of topics that reflect the breadth of our membership's interests," said Jan Leach, APS president-elect and chair of the meeting planning committee. "Because of our collaboration with CPS and MSA, the program will be rich in mycology and forest pathology. Combined with the lovely venue of Quebec City, this promises to be an exciting and memorable meeting," she said.
The meeting's scientific program will kick off Sunday morning, July 30, with the plenary session "Biological Interactions and Biological Crossroads." The scientific program, which collectively represents the program of all three societies, includes nearly 25 oral sessions, more than 700 poster presentations, and three days of special sessions. The meeting will also include an exhibition, hands-on workshops, and field trips.
Session tracks include:
- Biology of Plant Pathogens
- Diseases of Plants
- Epidemiology/Ecology/ Environmental Biology
- Molecular/Cellular Plant-Microbe Interactions
- Plant Disease Management
