Canadian Phytopathological Society Annual Meeting
June 12 to 15, 2016
Delta Beauséjour, Moncton, NB, CANADA
On behalf of the organizers of the 2016 Canadian Phytopathological Society (CPS) annual meeting, we invite you to the 87th Annual Meeting of the CPS to be held June 12-15, 2016 at the Delta Beauséjour, 750 Main Street, Moncton, NB. The objectives of CPS are to encourage research, education, and the dissemination of knowledge on the nature, cause, and control of plant diseases. Society-sponsored, national meetings and regional association meetings provide an opportunity for plant pathologists to meet and discuss their common interests. The annual meeting allows participants from industry, government and academic institutions a forum to interact, educate and communicate on the nature, cause and control of plant diseases. The organizing committee has incorporated many presentations by leading researchers from North America.
Our annual meeting typically attracts research, industry, and extension personnel from across Canada as well as the USA and internationally with attendance ranging from around 80 up to over 140 for joint meetings. Presentations and posters at the meeting cover field crops like potatoes, wheat, barley, and canola through to horticultural and forest species. Topics that are covered range from applied research through to basic research dealing with host-pathogen interactions. In addition, we are planning on having a total of two symposia and two workshops. The symposia and workshops are as follows:
S1. Genomics-based applications in plant pathology
S2. Biovigilance: A framework for effective pest management
W1. Effectoromics and resistance breeding (to register email firstname.lastname@example.org)
There will be both paper and poster sessions. A welcome reception will be held at the Delta Beauséjour on the evening of June 12, 2016 and a banquet on June 14, 2016.
