Workshop on Tree Resistance to Insects & Diseases: Putting Promise into Practice (Aug 5-10, Ohio, USA)
We have now picked the date and location for the 6th International Workshop of the Genetics of Host-Parasite Interactions in Forestry, Tree Resistance to Insects & Diseases: Putting Promise into Practice. This workshop will be a continuation of the recent workshops held in Orleans, France (2015) and Eugene, Oregon, USA (2015). The past workshops were highly successful, and we anticipate the same in 2018 for this important topic. Please have a look at the information below and on the website, and please pass the notice along to colleagues who work on aspects of Insect or Disease Resistance in Trees.

We are very excited to announce this upcoming workshop, but due to several factors, the workshop will be limited to 110 participants, which is similar in size to the 2011 and 2015 workshops. For organizational planning (including contracts we need to make for lodging), it would be VERY helpful if you would respond to the survey below (no 'commitment' but will provide us some guidance for planning purposes):
__ I am planning on attending the workshop
___ I may attend the workshop
___ I cannot attend the workshop but am interested in the Resistance (in trees) topic - please keep me on the mailing list
Also, we are updating our mailing list for people interested in this topic and workshop, so having a note back from you helps us to focus the future emails.
For more information: Richard Sniezko (rsniezko(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>) or Jennifer Koch (jkoch(a)fs.fed.us<mailto:email@example.com>
