Asia is the most populous continent. Over 60% of human population live in this continent and the population of Asian will be increased for the next tens of years. Now we are faced with lots of threats, such as climate changes, epidemic of plant diseases, and environmental pollutions, to disturb sustainable supply of foods and natural resources for diverse industries. Considering it, plant disease is a significant threat to food security for many nations. It is therefore imperative to devise the novel and stable control strategies for plant disease, which requires understanding of plant pathogens and interaction between host and pathogen. Asian Conference of Plant Pathology (ACPP) has been the forum to foster collaboration among scientists around the world, especially Asia. Not surprisingly, much progress has taken place in a wide range of research topics on the biology, genomics, host-pathogen interactions, resistance, and disease management. To share the recent advancement in scientific researches and to broaden our understanding of plant diseases, we host the 6th ACPP in beautiful island of South Korea, Jeju.
