Using artificial intelligence in phytoprotection

Dear members, what a year it has been! Following last year’s unfortunate cancellation of our annual meeting, we are delighted to announce that the QSPP 2021 annual meeting will be held virtually on September 16 and 17th, 2021. This year’s theme will be : “Using artificial intelligence in phytoprotection”. In light of the past year we’ve had and the reduced costs of hosting a virtual event, the organizing committee is pleased to offer the registration and publication of summaries in our journal, Phytoprotection, absolutely free of charge! It is open to all, whether you are a Society member or not.

The preliminary program, with this year’s invited speakers, is available now!
