Dear Colleagues,

Apologies if you receive this more than once.

	It is the pleasure of the Microarray Gene Expression and Data (MGED)  
society to announce that registration and abstract submission is now  
open for the MGED11 meeting in Trentino, Italy, Monday September 1st - 
 > Wednesday September 3rd, 2008.  In addition, there will be a day of  
optional tutorials and workshops following the meeting on September 4th.

Further information is available at http://www.mgedmeeting.org/ and  
key dates are:

Deadline for Abstract submission for consideration as an oral  
presentation : June 10th
Notice of acceptance: June 25th
Early registration ends:  June 30th
Abstract submission closes: 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 and analysis  
techniques.  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 again 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
