Program​​

​​The twin threats of climate change and political conflict have brought​ into sharp focus the need to improve the resilience of local crop production systems. This 19th Congress of IS-MPMI will feature major advances in our understanding of plant-microbe interactions that will help us develop more resilient crops.

The 2023 Congress will start off with a special session focused on emerging threats to crop production in Bangladesh, East Africa, and Brazil and show ways MPMI research is addressing these challenges. The plenary program will then cover major advances made over the last four years in our understanding of molecular plant-microbe interactions, spanning from the structural biology of plant immune receptors to how healthy plant microbiomes are established and maintained, and everything in between.

Plenary sessions will feature a diverse set of speakers from 15 different countries presenting talks that address major advances in our understanding of immune signaling, pathogenesis, symbiosis, and microbiomes. Concurrent sessions will be selected from community-generated proposals and will feature a diverse selection of formats that enable active audience engagement. 

More information on the detailed 2023 IS-MPMI Congress program will be added as we approach the opening of registration in March 2023.
