Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that WP7.02.13 Forest Health in Southern Hemisphere Commercial Plantations announce our second meeting:
Novel and classical strategies to manage forest health in plantations
Where: Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil
When: 17-20 September 2023
Carlos Frederico Wilcken, Caroline Dias de Souza, Edson Luiz Furtado, and Leonardo Rodrigues Barbosa will be the local organisers.
Attached is the first announcement. Also available online here: https://www.iufro.org/fileadmin/material/science/divisions/div7/70213/matto…
March: call for abstracts - Registration open
May: abstract submission deadline - Early registration close
June: abstract acceptance communication
September 17th: Opening session at 7 p.m.
Please share this announcement with your forest pathology and entomology colleagues.
Apologies if you receive this message more than once as we will be circulating through several channels.

The call for abstracts for the International Congress of Plant Pathology, which is being held in Lyon, France, from 20-25 August 2023, is open. The deadline for abstract submission is February 15 and the early registration deadline is April 15.
The meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for forest pathologists to gather, and to interact with plant pathologists that don't work on trees but share common research interests.
There are several forest pathology sessions at the congress (https://www.icpp2023.org/call-abstracts):
* 18.01 Current and emerging forest pathology issues
* 18.02 Understanding emergence of pathogens in commercial and public forest ecosystems
* 18.03 Forest pathogenic fungi interacting with insect pests: research fronts and perspectives
* 18.04 Bioinvasion in the urban environment: pathways, early warning, mitigation measures, institutional frameworks and policy implementation
* 18.05 Social and cultural dimensions of international forest health
* 18.06 Advances in the use of novel monitoring programs and exotic sentinel trees to detect incipient threats posed by forest pathogens in forest ecosystems
* 18.07 Botryosphaeria dieback, which culture is affected, what we know and how to fight?
* 18.08 A mechanistic approach of the varietal mixture effects on plant pathogens
* 18.09 CRISPR crops: plant Genome Editing Toward Disease Resistance
* 18.10 MOLECULAR ASPECTS: interactions with parasitic plants
* 18.11 MOLECULAR ASPECTS: plant-bacteria interactions
* 18.12 MOLECULAR ASPECTS: plant-fungus interactions
* 18.13 MOLECULAR ASPECTS: plant-nematode interactions
* 18.14 MOLECULAR ASPECTS: plant-oomycetes interactions
* 18.15 MOLECULAR ASPECTS: plant-virus interactions
* 18.16 Plant pathogens interactions in multi stress conditions (abiotic and biotic stresses): viruses and other pathogens?
* 18.17 Plant responses to pathogen
* 18.18 Towards structure-based design of disease resistance genes
* 18.19 Insights in Plant Immune Receptors
Hopefully, many of you will be able to attend and participate in the congress.
