The 2017 DIG Program is up on the conference registration page - and it looks good! We have a full program of fantastic speakers from university, community groups, the mining industry, NRM, and State Government speaking on a range of topics that will help us to better understand and manage Phytophthora Dieback. 

- Prof Stephen Hopper from UWA - Keynote address: Dieback and Kwongan - novel perspectives from an ancient diversifying flora
- Dr Judy Fisher from the IUCN - An IUCN Globally endorsed approach to protect and preserve future environments from invasive species.

- Dr Elaine Davison from DWG - Challenges associated with dieback-free BRM
- Tilo Massenbauer from South Coast NRM - Project Dieback Framework and rationalisation matrix.
- Dr Emer O'Gara from DBCA - on PD risk management for disturbance activities.
- Matt Rumenos from DBCA - Using LIDAR and geospatial techniques in Dieback mapping.
- Tegan Douglas from Birdlife Western Australia - A Birdlife WA perspective on stopping PD.
- Prof Giles Hardy from Murdoch University - Retrospective on 25 years of PD research at Murdoch University.
- Dr Sarah Barrett & Damien Rathbone from DBCA - Long-term phosphite application effects.
- Dr Andrew Grigg from Alcoa Australia - Implementing an eradication program on Alcoa's haul roads.
We'll also be joined by Dr Bill Dunstan and some of the top PhD students from the Murdoch University CPSM to present on a range of research topics including P. cinnamomi eradication, molecular detection tools, the pathogenicity of some new Phytophthora species and jarrah forest change due to drought and heatwaves. 
We'll also be getting updates on DWG activities, Roleybushcare PD management activities, management of the Myrtle Rust threat.
