Dear Forest Pathologists,
As you know, the International Congress of Plant Pathology (ICPP2023,
https://www.icpp2023.org/) will take place in the beautiful city of
Lyon, France, from August 20 to 25, 2023. During the congress, there
will be at least 6 concurrent sessions devoted to forest or tree pathology.
On behalf of the Forest Pathology Subject Matter Committee of the
International Society of Plant Pathology (ISPP) and of IUFRO Division 7,
Tod Ramsfield kindly asked me to organize a Forest Pathology Field ahead
of the conference, as is the case at every ICPP.
Together with three colleagues from the French Department of Forest
Health (DSF), we have put together an exciting program for this
excursion. The field trip will take place on *Saturday, August 19*, all
day from 8am to 8pm. We will go to the Chautagne Forest, near the
Bourget Lake in the Alps, about 2 hours by bus from Lyon, to discover
several forest diseases (see attached file).
The number of participants to this field trip will be *strictly limited
to 50 persons* (1 bus) on a first come first served basis. Therefore, I
would advise those interested *not to wait too long to register*.
Registration for the field trip is already open and can be done at the
same time as registration for ICPP by choosing among the satellite
events (https://www.icpp2023.org/registration). The fee for the field
trip is the same as for all other satellite events (90€ per person,
including transportation, coffee break, lunch at restaurant, and visit
of the Hautecombe Abbey).
In addition, I would like to have an idea of how many forest
pathologists would be interested in participating in this field trip.
For this, please answer this very short survey (3 questions):
Please note that this survey is purely indicative and does not replace
your registration on the ICPP2023 website.
I look forward to meeting many of you in Lyon in August!

Dear Division 7 members,
I will be posting about the sessions that will be organized by division 7 members at the XXVI IUFRO World Congress on the Division 7 twitter page (@IUFROdivision7). I will probably post about one session every week.
If you are interested in highlighting a session that you are organizing, please send me the following details:
* Session title
* Your personal twitter handles if you would like to be tagged in the post.
* If applicable, list of other divisions involved.
* Is the session welcoming abstract submissions for talks and/or posters?

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Dear forest scientists and experts, dear IUFRO members, dear colleagues,
The Congress Scientific Committee (CSC) is pleased to announce that the Call for Abstracts for the XXVI IUFRO Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, 23-29 June 2024, is open and welcomes submissions of abstracts for presentations in sub-plenary, technical and poster sessions.
To submit your abstract, please take the following steps:
1. Consult the list of sessions at Call for Congress Abstract | IUFRO Stockholm 2024 (iufro2024.com)<https://iufro2024.com/call-for-congress-abstract>
2. Submit your abstract at Abstract Submission | IUFRO 2024 <https://www.appinconf.com/kas/Abstract?projectName=iufro2024abstracts>
A form for abstract submission is available online. You will be required to insert a title (max 150 characters), authors with their affiliation (the author presenting the paper or poster at the Congress must be designated as the Presenting Author), and text (max 350 words describing context, specific topic of the study, methods, main results, and conclusions in plain writing). No figures, tables or list of references should be added. Please note that abstracts may be submitted in English only.
Authors must select one of the following options: oral only; poster only; oral or poster. The session organizers will decide on the length of a talk, which could range from 2-3 minutes for flash talks to 15 minutes or more for regular talks. Please note that poster presenters will be given the opportunity to present their work orally (2-3 min) during moderated poster sessions. The Congress will feature only digital poster displays to ensure high visibility for poster presentations. Poster areas will be open and free to visit during the whole Congress.
Authors are limited to a maximum of two abstracts as presenting author, although an individual may be listed as a co-author on several abstracts. Abstracts not associated with one of the sessions in the list may be assigned to a general poster session. Session organizers will review the abstracts for scientific quality, topical significance and relevance to the Congress themes<https://iufro2024.com/iufro-world-congress-2024/forests-and-society-towards…> and to the particular session to which the abstract is submitted, and assign them as oral or poster presentations. You will be informed in due time about the type and length of your presentation.
Candidates for Best Poster Award<https://www.iufro.org/fileadmin/material/discover/honour-bpa.pdf> must apply online during the abstract submission process.
Abstracts will be accepted until 2 June 2023. Authors will be informed if their presentation is accepted by 30 October 2023. In order to remain in the programme, the registration deadline for Presenting Authors of accepted abstracts is 15 January 2024.
We look forward to your active participation in the design of the scientific program for the 2024 IUFRO Congress in Stockholm.
