On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to the Symposium devoted to classical and molecular approaches in pathogen and pest taxonomy entitled Classical and molecular approaches in plant pathogen taxonomy and post symposium workshops

The scope of the Symposium is to provide a valuable forum to exchange knowledge, practice skills and research results associated with various aspects of the routine and advanced methods currently applied in microbiota identification.

The meeting will include invited lectures, short communications and posters sessions thematically arranged and focused on key groups of plant pathogens: fungi, bacteria and viruses.



  1. Plant pathogen detection, classical and molecular approaches
  2. Analysis of microbiota population pathogenic to plants
  3. Diversity of environmental associations among plant microbes
  4. Evolution, taxonomy, systematics
