In 2010 the Soil Fungus Conference was renamed Conference on Soilborne Plant Pathogens (CSPP), to include nematodes, bacteria, and viruses and to expand the scope of the meeting. The CSPP is a short meeting with a long list of benefits. Started in 1954 by researchers from the University of California with interests in soilborne fungi, it meets annually at locations in the western U.S. It has progressed into one of the most commonly known and highly valued conferences in plant pathology focused on soilborne pathogens.

This meeting has a relatively informal and highly interactive format that allows for provocative, short oral presentations on research and development discoveries, new or increasing disease problems, new applications, products and equipment, and other subjects, followed by questions and spirited, illuminating discussions as the audience pitches in. In some respects, it is a veritable “think tank” with both immediate and long-term benefits. All participants are encouraged to present and/or contribute to the discussions as they choose and time permits. Creative thinking, insights, opinions, and lots of take-home ideas abound under the special climate of this event. Participants come from universities (research, teaching, extension), private industry, technical service organizations, private practice/consulting, municipal and state agencies, crop production, and other areas.
