    Frontiers in Legume Symbiosis

    A symposium in memory of Adam Kondorosi

    13 - 14 december 2012
    Gif-sur-Yvette (France)


    It is our pleasure to invite you to participate at the symposium Frontiers in legume symbiosis -
    A symposium in memory of Adam Kondorosi
    , which will be held in Gif-sur-Yvette (Paris, France), on December 13-14, 2012.

    Adam Kondorosi has been for about three decades one of the world-wide leading scientists in the field of plant-microbe interactions, and more particularly in the Rhizobium-legume symbiosis. Adam has been the founding director of our institute, the Institut des Sciences du Végétal in Gif-sur-Yvette which he has developed ex nihilo into an internationally renowned research institution in plant biology. Adam died on 21st January 2011 and we - his former colleagues and friends - believe that a scientific symposium is the best tribute we can give to him.

    In this symposium, we bring together some of his long-standing colleagues as well as new actors in the field to create a scientific event that is at the forefront of the Rhizobium-legume field and that certainly would have pleased Adam.

    We look forward to meet you in Gif-sur-Yvette.

    The Organizing committee:
    Hélène Barbier-Brygoo
    Martin Crespi
    Yves Dessaux
    Bruno Gronenborn
    Peter Mergaert
    Pascal Ratet
