XX International Plant Protection Congress,
Athens, Greece, 10-15 June 2023

The Hellenic Society of Phytiatry (HSP) is very pleased and honored to announce that the International Association for the Plant Protection Societies (IAPPS) has accepted the Greek bid proposal for the organization of the XX International Plant Protection Congress in Athens, Greece. The congress is under the aegis of the Agricultural University of Athens and is going to take place at the MEGARON Convention Center in Athens 10-15 June, 2023.

Please note that most of the members of the local organizing and scientific committee are world-known scientists with experience in research, teaching and application in plant protection with profound scientific achievements either in Greece or  abroad.

As for the venue of the Congress, natural and cultural beauty of Greece and its cosmopolitan capital, the world famous city of Athens, the history, the tradition and the hospitality, are significant reasons justifying broad international participation. Apparently Athens, has a great organizational advantage since it is easily accessible from Europe, Africa and several countries of Asia, while several American countries have direct flights to Athens.

Greece, as a Mediterranean and South European country, covers a vast diversity of agricultural temperate, subtropical and even tropical cultivations with highly specialized scientists on plant protection sciences working in Universities, Research Centers and in the Private Sector.  Thus, Greece is one of the few countries where scientists can meet a very broad diversity of cultivations and plant protection problems.

It is certain that participants of the XX IPPC ATHENS 2023 beyond science will enjoy long-standing history, the ancient and modern city of Athens, the birth place of democracy, the fantastic environment and finally Greek tradition, special Mediterranean food and legendary hospitality.   The organizers are looking forward to the successful organization and realization of the congress at all stages till the final day of the congress.
