Second Announcement and Call for Abstracts
IUFRO International Symposium on Pine Wilt Disease
October 25-28, 2023
The Pine Wilt Disease Working Party (7.02.10), a section of IUFRO is dedicated to the research and technology development of Pine Wilt Disease (PWD) worldwide. The Working Party holds an International Pine Wilt Disease Conference regularly in countries around the world. Past events have taken place in Portugal (2006), China (2009), Germany (2013), Korea (2016) and France (2021). The next International PWD Symposium will be held in Nanjing, China, a historic and cultural city located in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, from October 25-28, 2023. The main theme of PWD 2023 is “The Prevention, Theory, Technology and Management of Pine Wilt Disease”. This symposium aims to present the latest advances on the spread and pathogenicity of PWD, multi-species interactions, monitoring and control methods, and technology development for PWD management.
The symposium will be held from October 25-28, 2023 (Wednesday to Saturday). An optional post-symposium field trip will be organized on 28th (optional).
