The format of the meeting will include seven oral sessions consisting of invited and short talks, chosen from the submitted abstracts, and one poster session. All speakers and chairs are strongly encouraged to stay for the entire meeting. The organizers will decide the suitability of each abstract for oral or poster presentation, but please specify if you prefer a poster.

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline.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 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 stating need for financial support - preference is given to those submitting abstracts.

We look forward to seeing you at Cold Spring Harbor in at the end of September.

This conference is supported in part by funds provided by: National Institute of Aging
Glenn Foundation for Medical Research

We have funds to provide partial scholarships for individuals who are US citizens/permanent residents from minority groups under-represented in the life sciences. Please provide justification in writing to morrow@cshl.eduand state your financial needs. Preference will be given to those applying who submit abstracts to the meeting.
