EPPO Conference on Computer Aids for Plant Protection (Wageningen, NL, 2006-10-17/19)

In October, EPPO is organizing a Conference on Computer Aids for Plant Protection in Wageningen (NL), in cooperation with the Netherlands Plant Protection Service. This is part of a sequence of EPPO meetings on computer applications in plant protection, which have previously been held in France (1989), Sweden (1992), Germany (1995), Italy (1999) and United Kingdom (2002). As on previous occasions, the Conference will combine spoken presentations with practical demonstrations of computer models, databases and decision support schemes.

The Conference will address the following key themes over several sessions:
  • Models for forecasting
  • Decision support systems
  • Tools for pest risk analysis (including Climex, GPS systems, the EPPO computer program for PRA)
  • Databases for Plant Protection (including EPPO databases)
  • Other computer applications for plant protection
