We cordially invite you to attend the 11th International Fire Blight Workshop. The latest advances in pathogen biology, host-pathogen interactions, pathogen identification, epidemiology, and disease management will be presented.

The meeting will be held 12 - 17 August 2007 at the Embassy Suites in downtown Portland, Oregon. The award-winning Embassy Suites Hotel is located in the century-old Multnomah Hotel, which provides a warm ambiance as charming as Portland. The meeting site is easily accessed by a short train ride from the Portland International Airport (PDX).

A special mid-meeting tour is planned that will include a trip through the scenic Columbia River Gorge to the pear and apple production region of Hood River, Oregon. The tour will conclude with a lovely dinner at the legendary Timberline Lodge on the slopes of Oregon's tallest volcano, Mt. Hood. Pre-meeting tours will be available to acquaint you with the history and splendor of this region of the Pacific Northwest.

We hope that you can come to the meeting to learn about the current scientific advances in fire blight research, connect with colleagues, and explore wonders of the largest apple and pear production region of the United States.
