Approximately 625 scientists and students from around the world will attend. The conference focuses on the molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and cell biology of filamentous fungi. The 21st meeting will consist of four plenary sessions, four sessions devoted to concurrent workshops in specialized areas, three poster sessions, and informal discussions. Topics to be covered in plenary sessions are: Comparative and Functional Genomics, Fungal-Host Interactions, Cell Biology, and Genome Structure and Maintenance. Specialized informal concurrent sessions are planned to cover a variety of more specific topics.
