BMS Annual Scientific Meeting Research
International Congress of Plant Pathology Research
Boston, MA, USA
Leading experts from around the world will present the latest advances and innovations, celebrate progress, and set a vision for assuring plant health in a global economy. The vision of the Congress – An engaged world community of plant health scientists advancing knowledge for a safe, affordable, secure supply of food, feed, and fiber for a growing population – reflects the broad and unique position plant pathology holds within the international community of scientists.

State of the World's Fungi Symposium Copy Research
Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Join scientists and policymakers for our first ever two-day symposium on the State of the World's Fungi. 13 &14 September 2018.
In conjunction with the publication of a cutting-edge annual report, scientists and policymakers will gather at Kew for the first international State of the World's Fungi Symposium.
Deadline for poster abstracts: Thursday 9 August 2018
Deadline for symposium registration: Monday 13 August 2018
Building on the success of our State of The World’s Plants project, the State of the World’s Fungi report provides a review of our current state of knowledge and the major issues affecting fungal diversity and abundance. Also featured in the report are fungal-plant interactions, conservation and uses of fungi, and the fungal tree of life.
The two-day symposium brings together plant and fungal scientists, ecologists, conservationists and industry and policy experts from around the world, to discuss issues raised in the report.
The symposium will be based around seven topical questions, with each session comprising talks from invited experts followed by a panel Q&A to discuss the emerging issues:
- Conservation of fungi: what, why, where and how?
- Does all plant life depend on fungi?
- And have you forgotten the lichens?
- Do fungi provide a greater ecosystem service or disservice?
- Fungal networking – who benefits?
- Panning for gold in the mould: where do we find commercial value in fungi?
- Exploring the dark taxa: when does a molecular signature become a species?
Other highlights of the programme include:
- Poster session and drinks reception – 13 September 2018
- Symposium dinner (optional) – 13 September 2018

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 14th International Meeting Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases (MEEGID XIV), held in the Hotel Melia, Sitges, Spain, from November 6th to the 9th 2018
Join us in Sitges, Spain for MEEGID XIV, the leading conference on the molecular evolution of all pathogens: viruses, pathogenic bacteria, fungi, parasites and prions. Special emphasis (through plenary lectures, express debates and symposia) will be given to health problems of specific interest to the current world situation.
Plenary lectures and symposia will also deal with transversal topics such as population genetics, evolution, speciation, bioinformatics, whole genome sequencing analysis and omic analyses. Together, the MEEGID congress series and its companion journal, Infection, Genetics and Evolution represent a unique forum for cross-fertilization between evolutionary science in the broad sense and biomedical research on infectious diseases.
Attending this conference will enable you to access unique, high-quality content, learn about the latest developments in infectious diseases and epidemiology research from experts in the field, present your latest research to your peers and network with an interdisciplinary group from around the world - including academics and researchers, as well as health and industry professionals.
Genetics, population genetics, genomics, proteomics, molecular epidemiology (strain typing), population biology, mathematical modelling and bioinformatics. Submissions can deal with the host (humans, wild and domestic animals, plants, the pathogen, or the vector in case of vector-borne diseases.
Host + pathogen or pathogen + vector, or pathogen + vector + host (co-evolution)
All pathogens, including: viruses; parasitic protozoa; helminthes; fungal organisms and prions
All infectious models, including those of veterinary or agronomical relevance
Cancer and infectious diseases.
Transmissible diseases and evolution of mankind.
Selected papers communicated in the framework of MEEGID XIV will be published after peer-review in a special issue of Infection, Genetics and Evolution.
During the conference, awards will be attributed to the best communication, the best communication by a student, the best communication by a scientist from the Southern World and the best poster communication. Each prizewinner will be offered a free 2-year subscription to Infection, Genetics and Evolution.
