23rd Biennial Australasian Plant Pathology Society Online Conference

“Stay Connected for Plant Health”

23 – 26 November 2021

ABOUT THE ASSOCIATION

The Australasian Plant Pathology Society is a scientific association dedicated to the advancement and dissemination of knowledge of plant pathology and its practice. Although the society is concentrated in the Australasian and Indo-Pacific regions the work of its members is of international importance and significance.
 

The Society supports education in science through the advancing plant pathology fund as well as student and ECR bursary schemes, the Australia-Japan student exchange program, biennial conferences and several publications.

Please note, abstract submission is closing on the 12th of May

BACKGROUND

The Academy of Science of South Africa is facilitating the process to develop a Code of Conduct for Research under the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA), having hosted two stakeholder events that were attended by scientists and researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. We have set up a Steering Committee to oversee the process of developing a Code of Conduct for research, as well as a Drafting Committee who are drafting the document.

At this virtual consultation forum, presentations will be offered on the process of developing a Code of Conduct, as well as on thematic areas of interest, including consent, genomics research, information matching programmes and the use of social media data in research. Stakeholders will be given an opportunity to share insights and provide comment on the development of the Code of Conduct.

CGIAR International Year of Plant Health Webinar Series

CGIAR’s IYPH 2020 events comprise a series of four webinars of global scope targeting scientists and researchers working in relevant fields. Each webinar will take an in-depth look at a different aspect of the crop supply chain, identifying areas for further research and opportunities to take current scientific innovations to scale, with the aim of boosting the long-term health of plants and the environment in low- and middle-income countries.

Open Plant Pathology is an initiative that supports and promotes the spread of all open, transparent and reproducible practices in the field of plant pathology. We advocate for an open science culture and our teams work to enhance this culture by 1) Offering Workshops in-person or via webinars, 2) Organizing Virtual Seminars for enhancing scientific exchanges, 3) Developing open sources tools and 4) Supporting Editorial Boards of journals to enhance reproducibility.

Virtual seminars

Coordinated by Dr. Benjamin Schwessinger, the Virtual Seminars (aka science webinars) are a venue for delivering scientific talks of general interest to a plant pathology audience. Anyone is welcome to contribute a seminar. If you are interested, please answer a few questions for approval.

  • The seminars are pre-approved and disseminated widely via Twitter.

  • It is live broadcast via Zoom at a date & time of the speaker’s convenience.

  • The speaker is available to answer questions from the audience after the seminar (e.g. up to 1 hour) either within the Zoom chat and/or on the OPP Slack channel for webinars.
