The 13th Arab Conference of Plant Protection 1-6, November 2020

Welcome to the 13th Arab Conference of Plant Protection, Tunisia, 2020

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Arab Society for Plant Protection and the Organizing Committee of the 13th Arab Congress of Plant Protection, we invite you to participate in our coming congress to be held at the “Le Royal” Hotel, Hammamet, Tunisia, during the period 1-6 November 2020 with the general theme “Plant Health for a Secure and Safe Food”. Excellent scientific presentations by Arab and Foreign speakers will be the backbone of our congress, in addition to one day agricultural and touristic tour to visit historical and cultural sites in Tunisia.
During five days, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues during the symposia, concurrent oral and poster sessions or when visiting exhibition stands. In addition, social functions (welcome reception, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, lunch breaks and gala dinner) will be an appropriate occasion to interact informally with colleagues from different countries representing different institutions, public and private, who share common interests. Such interactions is a golden opportunity for initiating scientific exchange which can lead later to a formal or informal professional collaboration.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Tunisia in 2020, the year declared by the United Nations as the “Plant Health Year”.
