Japan-Korea Symposium

Adjunct Symposium to ACPP2020, 5th Japan-Korea Joint Symposium on Plant Pathology

Plant pathology researches based on advancing technologies

Every two years The Phytopathological Society of Japan (PSJ) and The Korean Society of Plant Pathology (KSPP) have co-organized the joint symposium on plant pathology.
This time the joint symposium is planned adjunct with The Asian Congress on Plant Pathology (ACPP2020) and is open to all who have interest. If you would like to participate in this symposium, please apply from the ACPP2020 website (https://acpp2020.org/). Those who plan to participate in the symposium in conjunction with ACPP2020 can participate for 50000 JPY (25,000 JPY for students) until April 30, 2020, and those who plan to participate only in this symposium can participate for 10,000 yen.
