List of Annual Meetings
- Wednesday 11/07/12 to Thursday 11/08/12
- Portland, OR Airport Holiday Inn
- Linda Brewer, Sandy Sears
- Additional Info:
- The WERA 1021 project (successor to Rapid Response W-504) organizing meeting will begin at 6:00 PM on Wednesday. This is being held in tandem with the annual Spotted Wing Drosophila research review meeting and Stakeholder Advisory Committee meeting being held on Wednesday and Thursday, November 7-8, 2012 at the Portland Airport Holiday Inn hotel. The stakeholder advisory committee meetings will begin at 9:00 AM and end at about 5:30 PM on Thursday, November 8.
We urge you to make these meetings a priority. While stakeholders participate in a facilitated discussion from which their feedback to the researchers will arise, those scientists not funded by the NIFA SCRI grant will be permitted about 10 minutes each to present their own findings to the rest of the scientist group. If you wish to present, please contact Linda Brewer directly. The exact amount of time allotted to each individual will be based on the number of presenters.
To facilitate meeting registration, a website for the meetings has been created. Please register for this important event here: http://horticulture.oregonstate.edu/content/spotted-wing-drosophila-project-meeting-2012.
You will find a no-cost meeting registration and link to the Portland Holiday Inn registration. Please make airfare and hotel reservations now. When you enter the website, you will find that there are three meetings being planned for this time in Portland.
Only indicate a dinner choice for the WERA 1021 meeting if you intend to contribute to the organization and plan of work. If you wish to participate, sign up for the WERA 1021 project here: http://nimss.umd.edu/
The research review meeting and the WERA 1021 meetings are open to scientist participants only. Please do not invite any guests to these meetings; everyone who is meant to be included has received this distribution. Because of the sensitivity of national and international markets to the threat of SWD infestations, these limits really are necessary. Thank you for understanding.
Contact me with any questions you may have.
My very best regards,
