The 13th Arab Conference of Plant Protection 31 October to 5 November 2021

Welcome to the 13th Arab Conference of Plant Protection, Tunisia, 2021

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 31 October To 5 November 2021 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 2021, the year declared by the United Nations as the “Plant Health Year”.

Postponement of the 13th Arab Congress of Plant Protection

After considerable discussion between the Executive Committee of ASPP and the Congress Organizing Committee in Tunisia, and after considering all the parameters associated with Covid-19 pandemic and its potential effect on the congress participants and their families, it was decided to postpone the congress until 31 October-5 November, 2021. We would like to bring to the attention of participants the following points:

  • The new congress date is October 31-November 5, 2021.
  • The congress venue will remain Hotel Le Royal, Hammamet, Tunisia
  • All submitted abstracts will be transferred to the new date, unless participants send an apology letter to the Organizing Committee indicating that they will not be able to attend the new date, or they prefer to send a new or revised abstract. New submissions will also be accepted.
  • The email address for the congress will continue to be:

The Congress Organizing Committee will soon announce new dates for new abstracts submission, or registration through the congress website. Participants are encouraged to follow all congress news on the congress website.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this postponement which was imposed on us by conditions beyond our control, and very much appreciate your kind understanding. Looking forward to meet you all in the fall of 2021 in Tunisia.
