Description: As part of a yearly cycle of conferences concerning the many problems afflicting plant development, in a world plagued by a surge of pests and diseases exacerbated by a global scenario of climatic instability, the primary aim of this event is the spread of knowledge regarding the new advances in plant pest and disease research and how these new ideas can help mitigate or overcome this ever-worsening problematic that takes an immense toll in terms of agricultural yield and profits.
For this, and to encourage discourse and the exchanging of ideas at all levels of the scientific career, not only will this forum count with the presence of a multidisciplinary and international team of several key-note speakers who have dedicated their work to different approaches in understanding this topic, but it will also give an opportunity for young researchers to submit and present the work they have been developing in this field, via oral communication or an e-poster format, after being accepted by the Scientific Committee behind the forum.
Method: Ten oral presentations by invited international and national keynote speakers, with 30 minutes duration each. Plus six oral presentations of 10 minutes each from participants, and 10 e-posters from participants with 2 minutes pitch each.
Number of participants: Maximum of 1,000 participants
