Dear All,



We are pleased to announce that registration for the 21st International
Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR2010) is now open at:

http://arabidopsis2010.psc.riken.jp/



The ICAR2010 will take place on June 6-10, 2010 in Pacifico Yokohama

(http://www.pacifico.co.jp/english/index.html),

Yokohama, Japan.



The program will include two keynote lectures, eight plenary sessions and
eight concurrent sessions which will include presentations chosen from
submitted abstracts. As in the past, the conference will feature a number of
community-led workshops that will provide opportunities for focused
discussion, whilst two poster sessions will provide ample time for research
discussion.



The preliminary program is now confirmed and will include Drs. Maarten
Koornneef, Elliot Meyerowitz, Motoyuki Ashikari, Kathryn Barton, David
Baulcombe, Philip Benfey, Michael Bevan, Joseph Ecker, Ikuko Hara-Nishimura,
Inhwan Hwang, Koh Iba, Dirk Inze, Tetsuji Kakutani, Steve Kay, Cris
Kuhlemeier, Chentao Lin, Olivier Loudet, Makoto Matsuoka, Peter McCourt,
Seung Yon Rhee, Kazuki Saito, Satoshi Tabata, Keiko Torii, Detlef Weigel,
Shinjiro Yamaguchi and Qifa Zhang.



2010 will become a memorial year in Arabidopsis research because the
international Arabidopsis 2010 project will be terminated. New projects in
plant research based on Arabidopsis knowledge will continue beyond 2010 by
international cooperation. The ICAR 2010 will highlight recent advances in
Arabidopsis research and its translational research using crops and trees.
