14th International Conference on Plant Pathogenic Bacteria (ICPPB)
14thICPPB has been postponed to 2022, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new dates are 3-8 July, 2022.
We are delighted to welcome you to the 14th International Conference on Plant Pathogenic Bacteria (14th ICPPB) to take place in Assisi (PG) in Italy from July 3 to 8, 2022.
The mission of the 14th ICPPB is to promote and disseminate the latest scientific advances in all aspects of phytobacteriology and encourage dialogue and collaboration between researchers.
The latest developments in the field, either basic or applied, will be presented and discussed at the conference. Invited and Keynote talks, oral and poster sessions will be held on key topics including: Disease Epidemiology and Pathogen Ecology; Disease Emergence and Pathogen Evolution; Disease Control and Prevention; New Tools in Disease Diagnostics and Pathogen Identification; Molecular Plant – Bacteria and Insect Interactions; Bacterial Pathogens and the Phytobiome; Natural and Engineered Plant Disease Resistance; Nanotechnology in the Disease Control.
A round table on Seed-Borne and Seed-Transmitted prokaryotes is planned.
The participation of PhD students and young researchers is encouraged.
We will provide you with the opportunity to experience Italian culture and food. Assisi is in Umbria, the green heart of Italy, and is famous as the birthplace of San Francesco, closely associated with the work of the Franciscan Order. Its medieval art masterpieces, such as the Basilica of San Francesco – one of the 55 Unesco Human World Heritage sites in Italy with fresco paintings by Cimabue, Pietro Lorenzetti, Simone Martini and Giotto – have made Assisi a fundamental reference point for the development of Italian and European art and architecture.
We hope you will join us for a great conference and look forward to welcoming you in Assisi!
