DON"T FORGET THE FEB 16TH DEADLINE
The 1996 International Arabidopsis Meeting is to be held at the
University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK over the dates
Sunday, 23 June - Thursday, 27 June.
There are to be ten lecture sessions covering embryogenesis,
vegetative development, reproduction, growth regulators,
pathogens and biochemical genetics. Speakers for the majority
of the programme will be chosen from submitted poster abstracts.
In addition there will be one invited speaker per session who
will also act as the session chairperson. The main lecture
theatre will hold only 450 people. Additional space will be
provided (if required) through the use of a second lecture
theatre. Talks will be relayed via the use of a second set of
slides, microphones and television monitors. Seats in this hall
will be offered at a reduced fee to those people who cannot be
accommodated in the main lecture hall. Those conferees would
be able to attend workshops and bring posters. We could offer
about 150 such places.
The deadline for registration and the receipt of abstracts is:
Applicants will be sent registration and accommodation payment
details by the end of March and these will need to be returned
with payment by the beginning of May.
There is to be a permanent poster display area, poster board
size is 4FT(120cm) high by 3FT(90cm) wide.
An informatics workshop and a poster reception are scheduled for
Sunday, 23 June; lecture sessions will commence on Monday, 24
The Wednesday afternoon will be free and there will be a range
of optional excursions for that time.
The registration fee will be 130 pounds (poster reception and
conference dinner/party included). Accommodation and meals are
not included in the registration fee, but will be bookable on
a daily basis (rooms will be available from 22 June to 28 June).
Bed and breakfast will cost 21/29 UKP per night for
standard/ensuite single rooms. Meals will cost approximately
10 UKP per day. Creche places should be available over the
period of the meeting.
The abstract book is to be compiled electronically and will be
available on the World Wide Web before the meeting. For this
reason it is very important that abstracts are received by
E-mail; although this will preclude text formatting in the
abstract book,this should be greatly outweighed by the
advantages of access via the web.
