1st International Symposium on Fire Blight of Rosaceous Plants
5-8 July 2016, Girona, Spain              

The meeting will cover all the aspects of fire blight research, presenting the latest advances in relevant fields such as host and pathogen genetics/genomics, host-pathogen interactions and plant breeding, disease epidemiology and ecology, pathogen identification, chemical/biological control and disease management strategies.
There will be a number of social events organized throughout the week (walking tour of Girona old-city, social dinner and BBQ) and a excursion to a Fruit Tree Research Station in La Tallada d'Empordà, with visit to orchards, and to the Cooperative Giropoma.
We hope you can share the current advances in fire blight research, connect with colleagues, and visit our beautiful country.
