About TG2020

16th International Trichoderma & Gliocladium Workshop (TG2020)

We cordially invite you to attend the 16th International Trichoderma & Gliocladium Workshop (TG2020) to be held in the Mision Hotel in Guanajuato, Mexico March 29th to April 2nd, 2020.

This international workshop, dedicated to Trichoderma and Gliocladium is intended to bring together experts from around the world and entrepreneurs dedicated to the commercialization of their technologies. It is expected that through this interaction, both basic research and applications will benefit each other, paving the way for better performance in the field and broad applications of these amazing fungi.

We are extremely excited with the organization of this workshop, the second to be held in Mexico, in Guanajuato in 2020. The international Trichoderma & Gliocladium  community has been meeting for 37 years since the first workshop organized by George Papavizas in 1983 (Beltsville, USA). Thereafter we have continued to meet in different places around the world, which now happens every other year since 2004. The spirit of the Workshop has always been to build areas for dialogue and increase our knowledge and understanding of these exciting fungi, the love of the lives of many of us. We really hope you enjoy the science and atmosphere of this workshop to which most of you continue to contribute but particularly from the ubiquity and camaraderie of the conversations. The conference will include Keynote lectures from prestigious academic leaders in the Field that will address the state of the art in selected scientific topics. It will be highly gratifying to have the valuable participation of distinguished colleagues from Mexico and the rest of the World interested to meet and interact with their peers, particularly young researchers and students.
This conference encourages the participation of young scientists, motivated students and postdocs to submit their abstracts to be considered for oral presentations by the scientific committee. There will be prizes for the best posters and oral presentations by students and the Ilan Chet prize for the best presentation by a young researcher. Falling in love with Guanajuato is easy. With its amazing colorful places and history, its warm atmosphere of peace and tranquility, and the beautiful people that lives there, you’ll feel that your dreams are coming to life. Perhaps that is why UNESCO named it a World Heritage Site. It’s a place full of magic, with a unique energy, located in the heart of Mexico that allows you to discover its traditions, culture, and unique architecture with various buildings and houses which are a great example of colonial architecture in neoclassical and baroque style.
