Italy : Early Registration deadline is June 30th
(by sherlock from genome.stanford.edu)
Tue Jun 24 13:31:49 EST 2008
Apologies if you receive this more than once.
The MGED 11 early registration deadline is next Monday, June 30th,
after which registration fees increase by 100.
Further information on MGED 11 is available at http://www.mgedmeeting.org/
Abstract for poster presentations will be accepted until August 5th.
The scientific focus of the meeting will be high throughput
technologies - in particular microarrays and ultra high throughput
sequencing - and associated data handling issues, analysis techniques
and standards. We have lined up some outstanding speakers who will be
giving talks on these topics.
This year we will again be selecting half of the plenary speakers from
submitted abstracts, to encourage greater participation in the MGED
community. Continuing from last year, we will also be running a
poster competition, with prizes for the best posters presented by
graduate and postdoctoral students. Finally, we will be awarding up
to seven $1500 travel grants to graduate or postdoctoral students who
are US citizens traveling from the US.
We look forward to seeing you all in Trentino,
The Microarray and Gene Expression Data (MGED) Society
