Annual Surveillance Workshop Invitation

The Annual Surveillance Workshop (ASW) for members of the Plant Surveillance Network Australasia-Pacific (PSNAP) will be held 25 and 26 November 2021 virtually.

The ASW2021 theme is “a climate of change”. The workshop will have four key themes including:

  • impacts of climate change on surveillance
  • emerging plant pest risks (natural and regulated pathway risks)
  • adapting surveillance during the COVID pandemic
  • emerging surveillance technologies.

We’d also like to discuss other topics that generally (or creatively) fit into the theme of ‘a climate of change’.

The ASW provides the opportunity for participants to formally and informally meet and network with their peers, exchange tips and techniques, share knowledge and find out what other surveillance specialists are doing and experiencing in their jobs.

The ASW is open to all PSNAP members. Final numbers at all events may be limited, depending on interest, and a balance of attendees from across the PSNAP will be sought.

Call for Abstracts

PSNAP members have the opportunity to present a 15 minute (10 min presentation and 5 min questions) talk.

The call for abstracts is now open to all PSNAP members. These should be a maximum of 300 words (not including title, authors or organisations), and should be submitted to by 29th October 2021. The organising committee will review the summaries and inform presenters of the outcome. The organising committee is keen to receive submissions from the spectrum of PSNAP members.

IMPORTANTLY, given current times we need to establish number of attendees very quickly. Can you please advise by emailing by COB 5th November 2021 whether you will be attending.
