   Subject: U.C. Berkeley IEDG 2006 Meeting Registration and Call for

We are pleased to announce the first international U.C. Berkeley Integrating 
Evolution, Development and Genomics Conference May 31st through June 2nd 2006. 
 This meeting is organized by graduate students and is inspired by the 
integration of evo-devo research programs at U.C. Berkeley. The meeting has 
been designed to be small in order to offer many opportunities for meaningful 
interactions between faculty, student, and post-doc attendees.  


The meeting will include multiple non-concurrent symposia covering a wide 
range of evolutionary developmental biology topics, including paleontology, 
comparative morphology, and genomics. In addition to talks from the confirmed 
invited speakers listed below, additional, shorter talks and posters will be 
selected from submitted abstracts.  There will also be lunchtime workshops, a 
dinner for speakers and students hosted by local graduate students at their 
homes, and receptions around the Berkeley campus.  


To register for the meeting, or to submit an abstract, please visit 
www.evodevo.org.  We would like to remind everyone that since conference 
attendance is limited, we encourage you to register as soon as possible.  The 
registration and abstract submission deadline is April 14th.  


Please pass along information about the conference to your colleagues, 
departments and list serves at your institution, and post the attached flyer.  
Questions can be sent to ucbevodevo at berkeley.edu.  


We look forward to seeing you in Berkeley this spring,
