9th International Workshop on Biological Control and Management of Eupatorieae and other Invasive Weeds, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Aims &
Topics
9th International Workshop on Biological Control and Management of Eupatorieae and other Invasive Weeds, 19.-22.03.2019, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
This workshop is organized under the auspices of the International Organisation for Biological and Integrated Control (IOBC), and CABI Southeast Asia. The first workshop was held in 1988 to facilitate the management and biological control of Chromolaenaodorata in resource-poor tropical and subtropical countries. In 2003, the scope of the workshop was expanded to include closely related species such as Mikaniamicrantha, while retaining an emphasis on the tropics.
Malaysia has been selected as the host country for this 9th workshop, the first to be held in Southeast Asia.
The tribe Eupatorieae, which includes Chromolaenaodorata and Mikaniamicrantha are widespread in Southeast Asia and have significant economic impacts to agriculture, the environment and livelihoods. The entire region has been shown to be highly climatically suitable for the weeds. Other species of invasive alien plants for which there are good biological control agents available and which could be included in this workshop if the interest exists, include Salviniamolesta, Pistiastratiotes and Partheniumhysterophorus.

8th Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Landscape Management for Functional Biodiversity", Wageningen, The Netherlands.
Aims &
Topics

8th Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Landscape Management for Functional Biodiversity", 27-29 March 2019, Wageningen, The Netherlands.

There is ongoing debate about the future of agriculture. While intensive management practices, including the use of synthetic pesticide applications, are standard practice in conventional farming systems, their undesirable side effects are increasingly recognized. There is public concern about the decline of pollinator populations, neonicotinoid insecticides and glyphosate herbicides are under scrutiny, and the EU has launched greening measures to mitigate negative impacts of intensive management practices on farmland biodiversity. There is growing momentum for a transition towards more ecologically-based pest management, but there remain still many scientific challenges. The aim of the meeting is to bring together the latest insights on current topics in landscape management for functional biodiversity, including the management for multiple ecosystem services, the identification of promising crop and non-crop management options to support biodiversity-based pest management, and initiatives to meet the challenge to halt the ongoing decline of important farmland species. Promising areas for future research will be identified.

The meeting is organised in conjunction with the postgraduate course "Bugs at you Service".

Aims &
Topics
15th ISBR Symposium, International Society for Biosafety Research (ISBR), 1-4 April 2019, Tarragona, Spain.Previously known as ISBGMO, the 15th ISBR Symposium will build on the outcomes and successes of the symposia previously hosted in Germany, Canada, China, France, Korea, New Zealand, Argentina, USA, South Africa and Mexico.
The goal of the symposium is to bring together academics, technology developers, industry, regulatory authorities, non-government organisations and other credible stakeholders to discuss all aspects of the use of biotechnology in agriculture and food production, including their risk analysis and regulation. Indeed, the theme of the 15th ISBR conference is New Horizons in Biotechnology: Risk Analysis for a Sustainable Future. The symposium promises to be an outstanding and timely occasion for sharing and advancing understanding of contemporary applications of biotechnology to today's agriculture and food production problems and we hope that together we will have a vibrant and robust symposium in 2019.

Only by discovering new active molecules by synthetic chemistry or from natural sources and by understanding how they work and how best to use them, can we hope to maintain and improve the quality of life for the world's growing population.
Presentations will be accepted from areas of fungicide science that fit into the following thematic areas:
  • New fungicides, targets, and modes of action;
  • New technologies and applications;
  • Digital pathogen sensing;
  • Biorational fungicides / biocontrol;
  • Resistance risk assessment;
  • Resistance modelling;
  • Fungicide resistance: mechanisms and diagnostics;

Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Integrated Protection of Field Vegetables" at DoubleTree by Hilton, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK.
Aims &
Topics
Meeting of the IOBC-WPRS Working Group "Integrated Protection of Field Vegetables", 13-16 October 2019, at DoubleTree by Hilton, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK.The pests, pathogens and weeds infesting field vegetables are becoming increasingly difficult to manage due to the reducing availability of conventional pesticides, particularly for minor crops such as vegetables, and the very high quality standards set by retailers and consumers. For these and other reasons associated with pesticide use there is considerable interest in Europe and elsewhere in integrated approaches that minimise the use of pesticides without compromising marketable yield.
The aim of this meeting, hosted jointly by the IOBC-WPRS Working Group 'Integrated Protection of Field Vegetables' and the Association of Applied Biologists, is to provide crop protection specialists/practitioners with the opportunity to explore new approaches to crop protection, present the results of their recent research, and discuss ongoing research and issues that are of mutual interest and whose resolution may benefit from a multi-disciplinary approach.
