                    Randy Scholl (scholl.1 at

The program will include the following speakers:

Mark Estelle
Kiyotaka Okada
Brian Parks
Joanne Chory
Gloria Coruzzi
John Browse
Jeff Dangle
Alan Slusarenko
Dave Marks
Carolyn Silflow
Linda Castle
Gerd Jurgens
Bob Pruitt
Erwin Heberle-Bors
June Medford
Liam Dolan
Pam Green
Nigel Crawford
Carolyn Dean
Joe Ecker

In addition to these individuals, an additional 20 to 25 speakers will be
chosen from submitted abstracts for 15 min presentations.  Because the
meeting is relatively short and there will not be concurrent sessions, it
will not be possible for everyone to make an oral presentation.  However,
we expect to have ample space to accommodate posters from anyone wishing to
use the poster format.

There has been some interest in having workshops during the afternoon
before the meeting begins on Thursday and after the meeting ends on Sunday.
 We anticipate one workshop to focus on transformation technologies and
another to focus on genome organization and mapping.  You are invited to
participate in the organization of these or any other workshops.  However,
at this time we expect that the workshops will be run independently of the
meeting.  For more information about the workshops, contact Ken Feldmann.

We are preparing a mailing that will provide more details about the
meeting, including a call for abstracts and registration information.  Do
not register at this time, however if your address is not included in the
Arabidopsis Stock Center Mailing List, you should see that it gets included
there (arabidopsis+ at  If for some reason you do not want your
address in the Arabidopsis Stock Center Mailing List but would like to
receive future mailings about the meeting, send your address directly to
Roger Hangarter (hangarter.1 at  We will not monitor the bulletin
board for addresses, so do not reply to the bulletin board for inclusion in
the mailing list.

If you have questions or suggestions regarding the meeting, you may contact
one of the organizers.
