The 2021 workshop on bunt and smut diseases will be an online event.

The workshop will be mainly composed of short presentations and discussion-rounds, rather than a full scientific conference. We plan to accommodate four workshops about 1.5 hours each and allow sufficient time for discussions.

Topics

  • Epidemiology and Pathology
  • Genetics and Genomics of Resistance/Pathogenicity
  • Resistance Breeding and Cultivar Development
  • Integrated Control

Within each workshop we plan for several short presentations of new and/or ongoing projects and then discuss these including cooperation options.

Timing

  • Registration for presenters, including abstract submission: before March 31, 2021
  • Registration for participation: before April 30, 2021
  • Workshop: May 5-6, 2021
