15th - 20th July 2013, Sheffield, United Kingdom
Welcome to the 12th World Congress on Parasitic Plants. I am delighted to welcome everyone to Sheffield where there is a long tradition of parasitic plant research.
I am looking forward to meeting researchers from all over the world for an exciting and varied scientific programme. As well as excellent science the meeting will provide an unparalleled opportunity for networking and discussion as well a range of diverse social events including a visit to the world renowned Peak District National Park.
The Congress will bring together scientists representing a wide spectrum of disciplines, research approaches, and geographical representation of parasitic plant research. Assembling specialists with different perspectives, all focused around the common theme of plant parasitism, provides a stimulating environment for learning, exchanging ideas, and connecting with old and new colleagues. The Congress will include presentations of the cutting edge of parasitic plants research and of management technologies of parasitic weeds.
Please seriously consider attending the 12th World Congress on Parasitic Plants. Mark the date in your calendar and register for the Congress. On behalf of the Organizing Committee and Society, we are looking forward to meeting you at the Congress.
Professor Koichi Yoneyama
