Dear Colleagues:

        C A L L   F O R   A B S T R A C T S 

	The Second International Workshop for Mapping of the Human Chromosome 1 
has been scheduled for September 22 - 24, 1995 at the Research Institute of 
Molecular Pathology (I.M.P.), Vienna, Austria. Workshop participants will have 
accommodation at a hotel near the institute and may either walk or use public 
transport from and to the I.M.P.. We are planning to raise sufficient funding 
to defray the workshop costs for one person per research group. This will cover 
travel expenses, accommodation at the hotel for two nights (Sept. 22/23 and 
23/24; one additional night can be arranged if required for travel schedules), 
local transportation, meals and refreshments.

	The beginning of the workshop is scheduled for 4 p.m. local time on 
Sept. 22. It will end approx. 3 p.m. Sept. 24.

	The prerequisite for attending the workshop is the submission of an 
abstract containing new and substantive mapping data for chromosome 1 or data 
on comparative mapping involving synteny/homology data to chromosome 1. HUGO 
and NIH request that those attending the workshop agree to present data that 
can be published in the workshop report and that they will make such 
information, maps, clones and other reagents available in a timely manner to 
the scientific community. The organizers will submit a written report of the 
data presented at the workshop to Cytogenetics and Cell Genetics for 
publication within a month after the meeting date.

	The organizers and chairs of the workshop are requested to draft 
reports in advance of the meeting. To facilitate this and the final report, we 
ask participants to submit their abstratcts by electronic mail, if at all 
possible. The address is "weith at aimp.una.ac.at". Those who are not connected to 
the internet may fax the abstract to Dr. Andreas Weith and, at the same time, 
send it on a disk (DOS or Mac) as a Microsoft Word and/or as an ASCII file via 
mail. Any graphics should be submitted on disk as a PICT or TIFF file, as these 
formats can be easily imported into one of our routine graphics programs. In 
either instance, please mail a hardcopy of your abstract and material to 
Vienna, as well.

	The format of the abstract must be: Title, author(s), address(es), body 
of text, e.g.:
Mapping regions of allelic imbalance on chromosome 1 in human breast cancer

Hoggard, N., Brintnell, B., Hey, Y., Jones, D., Mitchell, E., Varley, J.

Department of Cancer Genetics, Paterson Institute for Cancer Research,
Wilmslow Road, Manchester M20 9BX, UK

        We have used 37 microsatellite markers mapping to both arms of human 
chromosome 1 to determine regions of allelic imbalance . . .(please do not 
exceed 250 words, if possible)
	Intending participants should note that they MUST submit data to GDB IN 
ADVANCE of the workshop; reimbursement of full expenses will depend on this. 
GDB forms will be sent out with the information package.


	The participants will present their data in a poster session; for 
reasons of time and efficiency we may select only a few abstracts for oral 
presentations. Every participant is requested to bring TWO copies of their 
poster/data to the meeting. The second copy will be required for the group 
discussions and for the respective chairs.

US participants: contact Dr. Jeffery Vance (email jeff at dnadoc.mc.duke.edu)

British, French and Dutch participants: apply to your own funding 
organizations; Italians and Germans also, if possible, but if not contact Dr. 
Andreas Weith.

All other European participants: contact Dr. Andreas Weith.

Australian participants: contact Professor Grant Sutherland (email 
gsutherland at medicine.adelaide.edu.au) 

Canadian participants: apply to CGAT.

Japanese participants: contact Dr Y Sakaki, Human Genome Centre, The Institute 
of Medical Science, University of Tokyo, 4-6-1 Shirokanedai, Minato-ku, Tokyo
