Cereals are extremely important crops for human consumption. They account for over 50% of human energy and protein needs, and cereal plants occupy two-thirds of all cultivated land. Although cereals breeding have been very successful in developing improved varieties using conventional tools and methods in the past, recent advances in cereal genomics have made it possible to analyze the architecture of cereal genomes, leading to an increase in our knowledge of the genes that are linked to key agronomic important traits. Nowadays most research efforts focus on understanding the genetic basis of traits of agronomic relevance and the application of genomics tools for the improvement of cereals. The International Conference "Translational Cereal Genomics" will cover the following research topics: Model Systems in Cereals Epigenetics and Evolution of Cereal Genome Genetic Resources, Natural Variation of Cereals Cereal "Omics” (Genomics, Proteomics & Metabolomics, etc.) Genetics & Molecular Mapping of Quantitative Trait Loci Application of Genomics in Cereal Breeding Sequencing and Bioinformatics of Cereal Genome Molecular Markers, Marker Assisted Selection & Molecular Breeding in Cereals Mutant Resources (TILLING, ECOTILLING, DART etc.) for Cereal Gene Discovery Cereal Doubled Haploids Heterosis and Hybrid Breeding of Cereals Breeding for Grain Quality, Processing, Nutritional and Aroma Traits Breeding of Cereals for Abiotic and Biotic Stress Tolerance Genetic Transformation of Cereals and Cereal Biotechnology Amongst the invited speakers are internationally known names such as: P. Langridge (Australia), A. Charcosset (France), J. Jia (China), B. Mauch-Mani (Switzerland), B. J. Till (Austria), N. M. Springer (USA), M. Parry: (UK), B. Keller (Switzerland), M. Sorrells (USA), Q.
