NINTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE CELL AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF
CHLAMYDOMONAS, MAY 21 - 26, 2000
We are happy to announce the 9th International Conference on the Cell
and Molecular Biology of Chlamydomonas, Chlamy2000 in short, which
will be held May 21-26 in 2000, in the Netherlands. The home page of
the conference is http://www.bio.uva.nl/chlamy2000.
The conference will be held in the "Leeuwenhorst Congress Centre", in
Noordwijkerhout, a village near Amsterdam, with easy access to the
cities Leiden, Haarlem, the International Airport and the North Sea
coast. The home page of the congress centre is
The meeting is organized in sessions about specific topics. There are
no concurrent sessions. Each session will start with an invited
introductory lecture (25 min) by a leading scientist in the field,
followed by a number of short (15 min) presentations which will be
selected from submitted abstracts. Ample time will be devoted to
poster presentations and round-table discussions. Three evenings may
be reserved for discussing subjects of general interest to the
Chlamydomonas community. Suggestions concerning the scientific program
are most welcome.
An afternoon excursion to the city of Haarlem is being planned, and
may include a visit to the famous Teylers Museum
(http://www.teylersmuseum.nl) and/or the Frans Hals Museum.
The conference is sponsored by the Royal Botanical Society (KNBV) and
the Biotechnological Foundation (SBN) of the Netherlands. Additional
funds are available to support students and postdocs.
