8th International Meeting on Arabidopsis Research
June 25-29, 1997
Madison, Wisconsin USA


DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION AND RECEIPT OF ABSTRACTS IS APRIL 14.
The preferred method of abstract submission will be via a Web form,
which is available from the following AtDB web site

(http://genome-www.stanford.edu/Arabidopsis/madison_abstract.html).

You will need a forms - compliant Web browser to use this form, such as
Netscape version 2 or higher.

Abstract submission should be via the Web form.  If, however, you do not
have access to the internet, contact arabidopsis at biochem.wisc.edu to
submit via e-mail.

Some of the registrants who submit poster abstracts will be chosen to
present a talk in the appropriate session.

Rooms will be available for anyone who wishes to organize a workshop
before or after the meeting or during the designated time: 4:00 to 6:30
on June 28.  Provide a title, list of participants and estimated number
attending (so we can obtain a proper-sized room) to
arabidopsis at biochem.wisc.edu.
