Scientific programme

Psyringae2020 will be an opportunity for plenary, oral and poster sessions on a range of topics concerning the ecology of P. syringae and its role in plant health and Earth system processes in a changing climate. Topics will include habitats and their microbiomes and interactomes, genomics and evolution of P. syringae, virulence, pathogenicity, epidemiology and disease management of P. syringae, greenhouse horticulture in northern latitudes: concerns about P. syringae and other bacterial plant pathogens, glaciers, ice, clouds, snow, and rain as habitats for P. syringae.

A tentative programme is as follows, but please note that session topics will be amended to reflect the delegate interests. A final programme will be published after the abstract submission deadline.
