Neurobiology of Drosophila

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory , Cold Spring Harbor, New York, USA
October 6 - 10, 1999

The goals of this conference are to provide a forum for the presentation of late breaking advances in Drosophila neurobiology, to exchange ideas and techniques, to stimulate future research and collaborations, and to recognize and encourage younger investigators and women working in this field. We strongly encourage all participants to submit an abstract(s) of your most recent work for consideration as oral or poster presentation. In the event of the meeting being oversubscribed, preference to attend will go to those submitting abstracts. In the event of oversubscription, participants will be selected on the basis of abstract quality, representation of subject areas, and geographical distribution. The organizers will endeavor to accept for participation at least one representative of every applicant laboratory either engaged in or about to embark on Drosophila neurobiological research. We particularly encourage active participation by younger investigators and minority scientists.
