The Thirteenth International Workshop on the
MOLECULAR AND DEVELOPMENTAL
BIOLOGY OF DROSOPHILA
Kolymbari, Crete (Greece)
June 23-29, 2002
The objective of the workshop, which is supported by EMBO, is to discuss
recent findings on gene organization and expression, early development,
pattern formation, developmental neurobiology and the evolution of
Drosophila. Approximately 80 participants will be selected from the
applications, by a majority vote of the organizing committee. The
participants are all expected to contribute to the subject coverage.
Applications should include a short summary of research interests and a
list of five recent, relevant publications to facilitate the selection
process. The deadline for receipt of applications is January 1, 2002. For
logistical purposes the organizing committee will adhere strictly to this
deadline. Please note that acceptance to the meeting is strictly limited to
the individual accepted. A registration fee of $500.00 must be remitted
upon acceptance. Local expenses in Crete will be covered. Participants are
expected to finance their travel to Crete. However, a small number of
grants-in-aid for partial travel support may become available. Preference
will be given to junior investigators.
