Welcome to the 5th ICBPI !

  


  

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we sincerely invite colleagues to attend the 5th International Conference on Biotic Plant Interactions (5th ICBPI) in Xiamen, China on August 17-21, 2017. The theme of this five-day conference is Biotic-Plant Interactions and Sustainable Control of Pests on Crops. As a continuing effort after the 1st conference (Brisbane, Australia in 2008), the 2nd conference (Kunming, China in 2011), the 3rd conference (Yanglin, China in 2013), and the 4th conference (Nanjing, China in 2015), this conference will be organized by the State Key Laboratory of Ecological Pest Control of Fujian and Taiwan Crops, Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University and Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology at Chinese Academy of Science, Chinese Society for Plant Biology and Chinese Society for Plant Pathology. It will bring together 800-1000 scientists all over the world and cover nine sessions: plant-fungus interactions, plant-oomycete interactions, plant-bacteria interactions, plant-virus interactions, plant-insect interactions, parasitic plants/nematodes, plant symbiosis, epigenetics in biotic plant interactions, and molecular design in crop resistance.


We are looking forward to welcoming you in Xiamen, China.


Sincerely Yours!
