Third Adam Kondorosi Symposium Announced
Registration for the third Adam Kondorosi Symposium, focused on Beneficial Plant-Microbe Interactions, is open. The symposium will be held in Gif-sur-Yvette (Paris region, France), on April 24-25, 2017. 
 
The objective of this symposium is to create a scientific event that is at the forefront of fundamental research in beneficial plant-microbe interactions. The meeting will have the following sessions and confirmed speakers:
 
Rhizobium-legume symbiosis:
E. Giraud (IRD, Montpellier, France)
F. de Carvalho-niebel (INRA/CNRS, Toulouse, France) M.  Charpentier (John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK) C. Masson Boivin (INRA/CNRS, Toulouse, France) F. Frugier (CNRS/University of Saclay, France)
 
Beneficial fungi:
M.A. Selosse (National Life Science Museum, Paris, France) P.M. Delaux (University of Toulouse, Toulouse, France) C. Gutjahr (Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich, Germany) C. Veneault-Fourrey (Université de Lorraine, Vandoeuvre-lès-Nancy,
France)
S. Hacquard (Max Planck Institute, Köln, Germany)
 
Endophytes and Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria:
B. Reinhold (University of Bremen, Germany) L. Sanchez (University of Reims-Champagne-Ardenne, France.) S. Radutoiu (University of Aarhus, Denmark) H. Hirt (KAUST Institute, Saudi Arabia) A. Carlier (University of Zurich, Switzerland)
 
Phylosphere and Rhizosphere beneficial microorganisms:
D. B Müller (ETH, Zurich, Switzerland)
D. Bulgarelli (University of Dundee, UK) E.M. Kemen (Max Planck Institute, Köln, Germany)
 
The symposium will bring together for 1.5 days about 150 participants in a rather informal atmosphere, facilitating exchanges. We also aim at proposing this highly attractive program at a moderate inscription fee

 

(120 Euros) to give the opportunity to researchers - in particular those at the early stage of their career – to participate to an exciting top-level scientific event. Young researchers will have the opportunity to present their work with a poster. There will be however a limited number of poster spots available and the attributions will be on a "first-registered first-served" basis.
 
You can visit the Symposium website to consult the program and to register.

Upcoming: 2nd International Congress on Strigolactones
IS-MPMI member Paola Bonfante recently informed IS-MPMI that the 2nd International Congress on Strigolactones (ICS2017) will be held March 27-30 in Turin, Italy.

Strigolactones are newly discovered phytohormones that contribute to defining plant morphology in response to environmental conditions and biotic/abiotic stress, and to the dialogue with organisms in the rhizosphere. In the last years, Strigolactones have become a cutting-edge topic in plant biology and agronomy, and have great potential in modern agriculture.

The ICS2017 will refresh the interdisciplinary, collaborative atmosphere in the Strigolactone scientific community as well as set up an inspirational meeting for young scientists. The symposium program features special and plenary lectures, invited lectures, short communications, poster sessions, and exhibitions. Top-level academics and established leaders in the field, young and emerging investigators, as well as leading scientists from the industry will share their results and knowledge.

Online registration is now open on the meeting website, and early registration closes on December 15.

2016 Durable Wheat Resistance Meeting

​This first-of-its-kind interdisciplinary meeting will be held on November 2-3, 2016 at the Minneapolis Marriott Airport Hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota (U.S.A.). The meeting will bring together wheat breeders, plant pathologists, entomologists, and plant scientists (genetics, genomics, and molecular biology) to discuss how to achieve durable and effective resistance to wheat diseases and pests. The meeting is being supported by a conference grant from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). Attendance will be limited to 120 attendees.

  • Keynote Speaker: Brian Staskawicz (University of California Berkeley, U.S.A.)
    "Genome Editing Approaches for Constructing Durable Disease Resistance"
  • Keynote Speaker: Jonathan Jones (Sainsbury Lab UK)
    "Expanding and Accelerating Recruitment and Deployment of Resistance Gene Diversity from Crop Relatives"
  • Keynote Speaker: Stephen Baenziger (University of Nebraska, U.S.A.)
    "Reflections on 40 Years of Breeding for Disease Resistance"
