Dear colleague,

This is the second announcement of the Symposium in Plant Biology 
sponsored by the Plant Biology Graduate Program at the University of 
Massachusetts Amherst and the Five College Consortium to be held on 
Saturday, October 4, 2003. We apologize for any duplicate email 
messages but wanted to make sure that a broad group of members from 
the plant community received information about the event.

The symposium will feature a daylong program of speakers, along with 
a poster session featuring contributions from attendees. The theme 
for our inaugural event is 'Cellular Signaling in Growth and 
Development'. The presenters will be Joanne Chory from the Salk 
Institute, June Nasrallah from Cornell, Peter Quail from Berkeley, 
Sally Assmann from Penn State, Nam-Hai Chua from Rockefeller 
University and Peter Hepler from UMass Amherst.

The symposium will be held on the campus of Smith College in 
Northampton, MA. Registration is free of charge, and we strongly 
encourage undergraduate and graduate students to attend and present 
posters. Please visit 
for more information and a registration form.  You also will find 
information on local accommodations if you choose to stay overnight 
before or after the symposium.  The deadline for registration is 
September 12, 2003.

Please, mark your calendars and take a moment to register.  We look 
forward to seeing you in October.
