Current approaches and applications from research to field implementation in a changing environment
PheroFIP 19, the Joint Meeting of the IOBC/WPRS Working Groups “Pheromones and other semiochemicals in integrated production” and “Integrated Protection of Fruit Crops”, will take place in Lisbon (Portugal), from 20 to 25 January 2019. Forest Research Centre (CEF) together with Linking Landscape, Environment, Agriculture and Food Research Centre (LEAF), from the School of Agriculture (ISA), University of Lisbon will host the conference, in collaboration with Abreu Events, responsible for the technical secretariat.
The venue will take place in Hotel Olissippo Oriente, at Parque das Nações, a renovated area with modern architecture near Tagus river, in the eastern part of Lisbon, which was designed for hosting the last world fair of the 20th century, Expo 98.

On the behalf of IOBC and the organization, we would like to invite you to come to Lisbon and actively participate, and share the results of your work. The conference aims at bringing together all involved in the study of Semiochemicals and Integrated Protection of Fruit Crops, for presenting and discussing the latest research and technological advances that may contribute to find effective and sustainable solutions to deal with phytossanitary challenges under a changing environment. It will provide an opportunity for exchanging information and ideas, as well as strengthening common research and collaboration and stimulating new interactions, among participants.
