We would like to invite you to Science Protecting Plant Health 2017, to be held at the Brisbane Convention Centre, Queensland Australia, from 26-28 September 2017.

We are pleased to present an international event and host a joint conference of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society and the Plant Biosecurity Cooperative Research Centre. We will present an exciting and invigorating scientific programme that will appeal to a broad audience of researchers, students, educators and policy makers.

Conference themes will focus on the latest science, research and practice from leaders in their fields encompassing all the disciplines of plant biosecurity and plant pathology. Recent developments, as well as future advances, will be showcased at this peak event, with presentations by international, national and local speakers in a well-rounded program augmented by poster presentations and an exciting social schedule.

Field trips, including to the spectacular “Carnival of Flowers” in Toowoomba on the Darling Downs, are currently being planned, as is a series of workshops by expert presenters on specific disciplines.

Brisbane, in the south-east corner of Queensland, has much to offer Australian and international visitors. Late September provides perfect weather – the days are typically sunny and temperatures warm without high humidity. Brisbane, surrounded by rich horticultural land, is the gateway to the amazing beaches of the Sunshine Coast to the north, the Gold Coast and Lamington Plateau to the south, the sand islands of Moreton Bay and the agricultural lands of the Darling Downs to the west.

Plan an extended visit to Queensland, and experience unique Gondwana subtropical rainforests, breeding grounds of the majestic humpback whale, pristine beaches and coral reefs.

There is much to see and enjoy in Queensland. We look forward to welcoming you in 2017.
