Meetings and Conferences

The BSPP holds an annual Presidential Conference which BSPP members can attend for a reduced fee. The conference always incorporates the PH Gregory Prize which is awarded for the best presentation made by a young scientist and the J Colhoun prize which is awarded for the best presentation of a poster. BSPP also supports a number of other meetings throughout the year. Suggestions of themes for these generally come from BSPP members.

This list of meetings here is by no means comprehensive. If you wish to publicise a plant pathology-related meeting, please contact the webmanager. Meetings are also announced in BSPP News and Plant Pathology: please contact the Programme Secretary, for further information. Abstracts of some previous meetings including BSPP Presidential meetings and the International Congress of Plant Pathology held in Edinburgh in 1998 are in the BSPP archives.
