The VI International Symposium on Tomato Diseases will be held at National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) in Taichung, Taiwan. NCHU started as an agricultural college, but has grown to be one of the island’s largest institutes of higher education and a leading science university in Taiwan. The Plant Pathology Department is large (200 undergraduate students and 55 graduate students) and well-equipped; along with training, it carries out advanced research in areas such as molecular plant pathology and virology, etiology and taxonomy, microbial and plant biotechnology, and integrated disease management.

The university is located in southeast Taichung, about 7 km (16 minutes) from the Taichung High Speed Railway Station.
