Mycorrhiza for All - An Under-Earth Revolution 7th International Conference on Mycorrhiza
6-11 January 2013
India Habitat Centre
New Delhi, India

An Invitation

The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to the 7th International Conference on Mycorrhiza (ICOM7) to be held from 6-11 January 2013 in New Delhi, the capital of India. Organized by TERI under the auspices of the International Mycorrhiza Society and in collaboration with the Mycorrhiza Network, this 6 day gala event would bring the ICOM legacy to Asia for the first time.

The theme of this conference, "Mycorrhiza for All: An Under-Earth Revolution" is wisely chosen so that it may prove to be the epicenter of a new revolution that our planet is in dire need of. A change that would help minimise the usage of chemical fertilizer on soil and hence leave the least environmental footprint.


ICOM Series & Its Importance

The ICOM provides an international forum for workers in all scientific and applied areas of the mycorrhizal symbiosis. The conference facilitates participants to present their current research status to the international community in the form of either oral presentations or posters. In addition, symposia and workshops covering topical issues related to the basic biology of the symbiosis, forestry, agronomy, and horticulture form an essential part of the conference. Student participation is especially encouraged.

A donor/sponsorship raised fund is proposed to be created and utilized for waiver in the registration fee and/or travel assistance to selected students T&C Applied.


Conference Objectives

  • Providing a forum for education, knowledge transfer, and professional development.
  • Facilitating interaction between different scientific working groups in the industry to discuss the state of mycorrhizal research around the world, and sharing of local and international experiences.
  • Exposing students to newer horizons and countries to newer collaborations.
  • Promoting networking and business opportunity development.

The function set of the participants' ranges from area experts to students who are desirous of learning more about mycorrhiza.
