The community is invited to the first meeting of the International
Arabidopsis Informatics Consortium (IAIC) to be held at the Plant and Animal
Genome (PAG) meeting in January, 2011. After opening remarks about the goals

and different aspects of databases including standards and operability.
There will be ample time for community discussion and feedback in the final
part of the program.
