We are glad to invite you to attend the 5th International Symposium on Tomato Diseases: Perspectives and Future directions in tomato protection that will be held in Málaga, Spain, June 13-16, 2016.
Held under the auspices of the International Society of Horticultural Science (ISHS) this symposium is a forum to discuss the latest advances in all areas of plant diseases affecting tomato crops. Every three years, it brings together about 150 to 200 international experts from different fields.
Plant diseases cause severe damage to tomato crops worldwide limiting yield. New diseases emerge regularly, constantly challenging research and development of control strategies. Knowledge is needed concerning genetics and breeding for resistance, host-pathogen interaction, ecology and epidemiology, integrated management or food safety and postharvest diseases for a better management of tomato. Discussion about all these aspects will take place during the meeting with key lectures on specific subjects from recognized international experts.
