The small size of the AUXIN 2012 meeting will promote informal discussions and interactions among the participants. The meeting will consist of 9 sessions as outlined in the proposed program. We will feature Keynote Addresses with talks by Joanne Chory, Philip Benfey and Masao Tasaka who will put the auxin field in a broader perspective of refined signal transduction and whole genome analysis based on recent breakthrough discoveries. The main body of the meeting will consist of sessions covering diverse aspects of auxin biology including transport, signalling, and metabolism. In addition, sessions will focus on the diverse roles of auxin in aspects of plant development such as meristem function, plant architecture, vascular development and embryogenesis. Mathematical and computational modelling of auxin-regulated development is another area of key interest in the field and will be well-represented. Exciting advances have been made in each of these areas as evidenced by the number of major review articles published within the last two years. The abstracts of the meeting will be printed and a bound copy will be distributed to all the participants. In addition, the abstracts will be available online.
The proposed program lists 30 confirmed invited speakers who will be distributed through 9 sessions. The speakers were chosen based on their recent contributions and represent 14 countries. Each session will include these invited speakers with 30-minute talks and 15 minute shorter talks of which 18 will be chosen from the submitted abstracts. Each chair will introduce the subject of the session and will encourage discussion. In addition, poster sessions will take place on Monday, and Tuesday afternoons. All participants will be encouraged to bring posters.
