Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

All registrations and abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline, January 16, 2015. Late registration may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. Status (talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers. 

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Demetria Mudar stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in March.
