It is with great regret that, after careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the 7th International Bacterial Wilt Symposium in recognition to the growing health risks worldwide related to the COVID-19 virus. We are aware of the travel restrictions that have been imposed due to this situation in many countries, affecting the attendance of a high proportion of participants and compromising the success and scientific impact of this meeting.

In this context, the organizing committee has decided to postpone the IBWS until November 2020.

The new dates were set for November 3-7, 2020

We hope that we can count on your commitment and flexibility in this challenging time and we are confident that with your support will make the 7IBWS possible.

If you have questions about the conference, please contact us: 7ibws2020@fq.edu.uy

Information and Guidelines for Poster Presenters

Dear participants,

We are sending information and guidelines for presentation of your poster at the 7IBWS
There will be two Poster Sessions during the symposium: on Monday 30 March (Poster Session 1) and Tuesday 31 March (Poster Session 2). The letter of acceptance sent previously to you indicates the session corresponding to your poster. If there are any modifications in the distribution of the posters ,you will be informed later.
In addition to the exhibition of your printed poster, all of you will have the opportunity to give a Poster Flash Talk (1 minute). The purpose of this talk is to attract the audience to visit the poster and to discuss the research with you during the poster session.

If you have any additional question we'll be glad to help you.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Montevideo!
