The 2012 Gordon Research Conference on the Plant and Microbial 
Cytoskeleton will be held at Proctor Academy (Andover, NH) Aug. 12-17, 
focusing on the latest advances in understanding the function, 
organization, and regulation of the cytoskeleton in plants, yeasts, 
filamentous fungi, bacteria, protozoa and other microbes (for a full 
meeting description and preliminary program, see 
<http://www.grc.org/programs.aspx?year=2012&program=plantmicr>). This 
small conference (<150 participants) is a great opportunity to meet and 
interact with researchers in the cytoskeleton field in an informal, 
inclusive, collegial setting.

Several $800 NSF-funded awards (covering the full cost of registration, 
double occupancy accommodation, and meals) are available to support the 
participation in this conference of U.S.-based Ph.D. students, postdocs 
and junior faculty who are members of underrepresented minority groups, 
as well as faculty at primarily undergraduate institutions. Interested 
individuals should:

1.      1. Apply to attend the conference at 
Applications from all individuals with research and/or teaching 
interests in the subject area of the conference will be accepted. 
Submission of an abstract for a poster presentation is encouraged but 
not required, and can be done later. Acceptance to the meeting does not 
obligate you to register.

2.     2. Send an email to the Conference Chair, Laurie Smith 
(lgsmith from ucsd.edu <mailto:lgsmith from ucsd.edu>) communicating your interest 
in receiving an NSF award and explaining the basis for your eligibility. 
Candidates who email the Chair before the end of May are assured full 
consideration; awards will continue to be made after that date if there 
are funds remaining.
