It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 11th International Symposium on Rice Functional Genomics (ISRFG11) to be held during November 20 – 23, 2013 at hotel “The Grand”, New Delhi, India. The first ISRFG was held in Shanghai, China in the year 2003 which led to the birth of International Rice Functional Genomics Consortium (IRFGC) for promoting International collaboration. Following this, the symposia has been held annually for the past 10 years in different countries including USA (2004), Philippines (2005),  France (2006),  Japan (2007),  South Korea (2008),  Philippines (2009), Brazil (2010),  Taiwan (2011) and Thailand (2012), with a strong commitment to research, application and International collaboration to showcase exciting discoveries and new insights in rice functional genomics. The focal theme of ISRFG11 is “Sustaining Food & Nutritional Security”. The programme would include Key-note lecture, Plenary lectures, Concurrent sessions, Panel Discussion, Poster sessions and other opportunities to interact.  The oral presentations would cover areas like Abiotic Stress, Architecture and Development, Biotic Stress, Comparative & Evolutionary Genomics, Epigenomics, Food and Nutrition, Informatics and Systems, Molecular Breeding, Small RNA, and Translational Genomics.  The Symposium would also provide an opportunity to discuss and evolve a roadmap for Rice Community.
