Welcome to the 10th International Congress on Molecular Plant Microbe Interactions! The main Congress will take place from July 10-14, 2001 at the Memorial Union of the University of Wisconsin, Madison USA. A satellite meeting on Medicago will be held from July 7-9, 2001 immediately before the Congress. Douglas Cook is organizing this latter event.
A preliminary copy of the program of the Congress is available at this site. We have invited 56 world-class speakers and all have agreed to participate. Thirteen additional speakers will be chosen based on information provided in the abstracts.

We hope that this will be the largest MPMI meeting to be held to date. Attendance of this congress has increased steadily since its inception some 20 years ago. Our facilities at the University of Wisconsin can accommodate 1300 participants. To encourage attendance by students we have reduced the student registration fee and are making available university residence halls for housing at a reasonable cost.

We look forward to seeing you at the Congress!

Note about the weather: Early July is typically warm and pleasant, but it is wise to come prepared for cool breezes off the lake and possible rain... current Madison weather http://www.weather.com/weather/cities/us_wi_madison.html

MPMI '01, the conference on Molecular and Plant-Microbe Interactions, will be held in Madison, Wisconsin, 10-14 July 2001. We would like to extend an invitation to you to participate as an exhibitor at this event.

MPMI '01 will be held at the Memorial Union on the University of Wisconsin campus and is expected to attract more than 1,200 participants. On-site registration will begin at 12:00 Noon on Tuesday, July 10, followed by the Welcome Reception at 6:00pm.

Exhibits will be located in the Great Hall on the 4th floor of The Union. This room is part of the poster session and refreshment break area and, therefore, in the midst of some major activities. The Exhibitor schedule is shown below.
