2021 Australasian Plant Pathology Society Biennial Conference"Stay Connected for Plant Health"

Online Conference

“Stay Connected for Plant Health”

We welcome the Australasian plant pathology community to what will be both the 23rd Biennial Australasian Plant Pathology Society Conference and our 1st fully online conference! This event was originally planned to be held in Hobart, Tasmania, however, due to the potential for ongoing impacts from COVID-19, we have decided to hold a fully online conference.

The theme for the conference is “Stay Connected for Plant Health”. A fully online format will allow us to plan with certainty and we are confident that all the key aspects of previous conferences (keynote speakers in plenary sessions, oral presentations across concurrent sessions and, poster presentations), can be well supported online. The system will provide user-friendly virtual networking and options to engage with exhibitors.

Please join us at the conference to stay connected with colleagues, support our emerging scientists and showcase and access the most recent plant pathology research.

About the Association

The Australasian Plant Pathology Society is a scientific association dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge of plant pathology and its practice. Although the society is concentrated in the Australasian and Indo-Pacific regions the work of its members is of international importance and significance.
