We are pleased to host the ninth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Eukaryotic mRNA Processing, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, August 20 and run through lunch on Saturday, August 24, 2013. The meeting will focus on the mechanisms and regulation of mRNA splicing, polyadenylation, turnover, localization and RNA interference. It will include all aspects mRNA transport, processing and control, including microRNA function. The meeting is intended to provide a format for the exchange of ideas and information, to discuss the latest research findings and technical advances, and to facilitate interaction amongst groups active in diverse systems.

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs. 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 and we have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Apply in writing to Andrea Stephenson ( stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.

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

This conference may be supported in part by funds provided by: National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health

We acknowledge support of the RNA Society for this meeting
