Non Technical Summary
Molecular, genetic, biochemical and genetic approaches have yielded major new discoveries in the field of auxin biology during the past four years. More importantly, many of these advances have been made by junior investigators. We propose to have an international meeting, "AUXIN 2004" in Crete, Greece, on May 22-27. The meeting will be devoted entirely to auxin biology in order to present these discoveries to the auxin biology community, discuss and plan for future research endeavors and introduce young auxinologists to the established field of auxin research. Funds are requested for parital support of this meeting. Specifically, the requested funds will support invited speakers and graduate student travel awards.

Outputs
Funds were used to support invited speakers and graduate student travel awards at "The International Auxin 2004 Conference," held May 22-28 at the Orthodox Academy of Crete, Greece. The meeting, which was devoted entirely to auxin biology, was vital at this time because of recent advances in the field of auxin biology. International scientists, both established and new in this field, discussed the latest breakthroughs and future perspectives of this unique plant growth regulator.

Impacts
Discoveries and plans for future research endeavors in auxin biology were presented to the auxin biology community. This vital meeting served to introduce young auxinologists to the established field of auxin research.
