Announcement of the host for 13th
International Congress of Plant Pathology, 2028.
of the objectives of the International Society for Plant Pathology is to
"sponsor a series of International Congresses of Plant Pathology",
normally at intervals of 5 years. Selection of the location and date of
each Congress is the responsibility of ISPP's Council at least 5 years in
advance. The selection process for the Congress in 2028 (ICPP2028) has now
been completed. During October-November 2021, ISPP Councilors were invited
to express their preference in a two-stage vote to choose between bids
from the Australasian, Canadian, Hellenic, and Korean plant pathology
societies. After the first round vote, Councilors were asked to select
between the bids of the two societies which had received most votes - The
Australasian Plant Pathology Society (APPS) and the Korean Society for
Plant Pathology (KSPP). The second round vote ended on 29 November 2021.
The RESULT of the vote was announced on 6 December, 2021 at
www.isppweb.org, and will be formally
announced at the 12th Congress, to be held in Lyon, France, from August
20-25, 2023. This ballot result has determined that the 13th International
Congress of Plant Pathology will be held on the Gold Coast, Queensland,

Each International Congress is organized by a Committee appointed by
the Associated Society hosting the Congress. One host-country Committee
member also serves as a Vice-President of ISPP.
Glen Anderson Lecture:
The Glenn Anderson Lecture honours Robert Glenn Anderson,
the eminent Canadian agricultural scientist, who played a major role in
the green revolution. The lecture series, on the security of world food
supply was was first given at joint meetings of the Canadian
Phytopathological Society (CPS) and American Phytopathological Society
(APS) in 1986, and an endowment fund was then established by the CPS. More
recently, the Lecture has been given at some International Congresses of
Plant Pathology (ICPP1998 to 2013).
Jacob Eriksson Prize:
The Jakob Eriksson Prize is the pre-minent international
award for plant pathology, and is awarded every five years at the
International Congress of Plant Pathology. The Royal Swedish Academy of
Sciences administers the Jakob Eriksson Prize Fund which provides for a
gold medal award at Congresses of the International Society for Plant
Pathology. In advance of each Congress, nominations are solicited for a
candidate of distinction in recognition of research in mycology, in plant
pathology, or in virus diseases, or of a particular publication dealing
with such subjects, with the understanding that the work being recognized
is of a distinct international value and merit.
