Despite accumulating vast amounts of "omics" data associated with plant disease and defense responses, we are only just beginning to translate that information into understanding the dynamics of host-pathogen responses at the cellular and sub-cellular level. This meeting will showcase current and emerging imaging techniques that are being applied to reveal new insights into how plant pathogen infections establish or are prevented. This is a timely opportunity to learn about state-of-the art approaches to imaging infection processes, addressing both establishment of infection apparatus and inter-organellar communication.


Confirmed speakers include: Nick Talbot, Sainsbury Laboratory, UK; Savithramma Dinesh-Kumar, UC Davis, USA; Petra Boevink, James Hutton Institute, UK; Markus Schwarzlander, University of Munster, Germany. The meeting will showcase invited contributions from early career researchers and emerging imaging technologies.


There are a limited number of slots available for offered oral presentations. Abstracts of talks are invited from all researchers, including graduates and postgraduates, working on imaging of pathogen and beneficial microbe interactions, from the whole plant to the nano-scale.

Closing date is 14 September 2018.
