On behalf of the organizing committee it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 17th International Symposium on Iron Nutrition and Interactions in Plants (ISINIP) to be held on the campus of the Leibniz-Institute of Plant Genetics & Crop Plant Research in Gatersleben ([link]IPK Gatersleben) and in the historical city of Quedlinburg, Germany.


Since the first symposium held in 1981 in Provo, Utah, USA, the ISINIP has become a premier international convention for a wide range of researchers interested in various topics related to iron nutrition in plants. These span from the ecophysiological aspects of iron acquisition and the interactions of iron with other elements or with microorganisms, over the molecular regulation of iron homeostasis, through to the agronomic measures that are to be taken in order to alleviate the symptoms of iron deficiency in crops. Over the past 16 meetings the ISINIP has always been committed to be an excellent forum for scientific discussions and the exchange of ideas among researchers, from leading scientists in the field to young postgraduate students. It is our real privilege to host the 17th symposium in Gatersleben/Quedlinburg, in what is the second time to bring this important event to Germany.


The 17th ISINIP will consist of 9 sessions, for which we have received 113 abstracts from 15 countries. This number reflects a broad interest in this rather specialized research area, and the excellent quality of the contributions emphasizes the leading position that iron research takes in the field of plant nutrition. I believe that this symposium will be another great opportunity for promoting new ideas and become an important starting point for new research collaborations in the future.


The members of the local organizing committee wish this to be a valuable meeting and hope you enjoy the scientific program as well as the social events. In this regard, I express my sincere gratitude to all members of the local organizing committee for their enthusiastic effort and the sponsors for their invaluable support.


With best regards
