This workshop is organized under the auspices of the International Organisation for Biological and Integrated Control (IOBC), and CABI Southeast Asia. The first workshop was held in 1988 to facilitate the management and biological control of Chromolaenaodorata in resource-poor tropical and subtropical countries.
In 2003, the scope of the workshop was expanded to include closely related species such as Mikaniamicrantha, while retaining an emphasis on the tropics. Malaysia has been selected as the host country for this 9th workshop, the first to be held in Southeast Asia.
The tribe Eupatorieae, which includes Chromolaenaodorata and Mikaniamicrantha are widespread in Southeast Asia and have significant economic impacts to agriculture, the environment and livelihoods. The entire region has been shown to be highly climatically suitable for the weeds. Other species of invasive alien plants for which there are good biological control agents available and which could be included in this workshop if the interest exists, include Salviniamolesta, Pistiastratiotes and Partheniumhysterophorus.

The Global and European biopesticides market has continued to grow significantly over past few years. With increased direction from the authorities and growing demand for sustainable agriculture it is certain that biopesticides market will continue to experience unprecedented growth. There is however still uncertainty from within the industry on how to get products effectively into the market. Issues with regulation and registration still prove challenging.
This 2 days event will bring together key industry stakeholders from the biopesticides industry to discuss the challenges faced and the future opportunities. Conference will also discuss the current overview of the markets, with highlights from experts on the progression of the biopesticides market and new insights and innovation of projects in pipeline.

The purpose of Ecology of Aphidophaga conferences is to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of research on the biology, ecology and behaviour of organisms contributing to mortality of aphids (Hemiptera: Aphididae). Acceptable topics include the following:
The program of IPPC2019 is aimed at addressing the key issues in crop protection against the backdrop of climate change and mounting pressure on natural resources to meet the growing need for nutritious and safe food, conservation of biodiversity and creating opportunities for economic growth.
The IPPC2019 will provide a great opportunity to present, discuss and disseminate the recent advances in crop protection, and establish contact and collaboration between crop protection scientists from different parts of the world. The deliberations of IPPC2019 will include plenary speeches and concurrent sessions in different disciplines of crop protection to create an awareness of the exciting advances that have been realized in addressing the challenges of nutritional, environmental and societal sustainability through innovative science, partnerships and an enabling policy environment.
The Congress intends to promote knowledge exchange and international cooperation, and to enable further exchange of up-to-date scientific and technical information on plant protection in agriculture, forestry and landscaping among researchers, teachers, experts in extension and public services and business community. The Congress should contribute to identifying new approaches, tools and techniques to meet future needs and challenges facing the science of crop protection.
Main topics of the Congress are:
