10th International Fusarium and International Fusarium Genomics Workshop Program
headline bar

PROGRAM:
Workshop sessions will consist of keynote papers, offered papers, and posters on the following topics: Systematics and phylogenetics; Genomics; Pathogenicity and disease epidemiology; Ecology and biogeography; Biological control; Disease management; Diagnostics; Host-fungal interactions; Mycotoxins and Metabolism.

Each Oral Session will include one or two invited keynote presentations and up to six oral presentations (10 min each) selected by the session chairpersons and by the Scientific Committee among the submitted abstracts.

Particular attention has been given to the Poster Sessions. Thanks to the facilities available at the Carlos V Hotel, we will be able to display all the posters continuously for the entire Workshop. Authors will have the opportunity to discuss their work during Poster Sessions in the afternoon without other concurrent Workshop activities.
