5th Plant Microbiome Symposium 2024
17 - 21 June 2024
The 5th Plant Microbiome Symposium will continue the tradition of (now) annual meetings of experts on the plant microbiome from all over the world. With these meetings we stimulate the exchange of information and ideas among researchers from around the world and working on a wide spectrum of disciplines and perspectives around the common theme of the plant microbiome. A selection of invited speakers will go beyond a standard conference talk, and will present their most exciting/unpublished results and expand their talk into the broader context of the field. They were invited to present stimulating or even provocative ideas, all of which should provoke lively discussions and the development of new ideas and research directions.
