Dear Rosaceae researcher,
In 2013, East Malling Research will be celebrating 100 years of plant science at this world-famous research institute – science that has shaped the way we understand and can manipulate plants to produce high value, nutritious fruit crops across the globe.
To mark this Centenary, East Malling Research is working closely with colleagues at the Association of Applied Biologists (AAB) to organise a two-day international conference on 6-7 November 2013. Entitled, ‘Fruit and Roots: A Celebration and Forward Look’, this event has confirmed key-note speakers from New Zealand and the United States, as well as the UK.
It is with pleasure that I attach a pdf of the first announcement and call for papers. We very much hope that you, and/or a colleague, will be able to participate in this event through presenting a paper/poster or attending the conference as a delegate.
To mark this very special year for East Malling Research, we will be organising a number of other events and activities, and I very much hope that we can look forward to welcoming you here during 2013.
With kind regards
Prof. Peter J. Gregory,
East Malling Research
