On-line and fax registration require payment by credit card. Credit
cards or checks are accepted for registration by mail. Checks must be
issued in Canadian dollars, and drawn on a Canadian bank (go to your

You may register for the meeting on-line through a web browser (such as
Netscape or Mosaic), by mail or by fax. Electronic registration is best
accomplished by visiting either the West Coast Worm Meeting web site
(http://genekit.medgen.ubc.ca/wcwm.html) or Leon Avery's Worm Meetings
site (http://eatworms.swmed.edu/Worm_meetings.html). You'll find a lot
of information and links to the UBC Conference Services meeting
Registering by mail or fax requires a copy of the registration form. We
have posted binhex 4.0-encoded and native format copies of the form on
an anonymous ftp site (ftp.zoology.ubc.ca in the directory pub/moerman),
in both MS Word for Mac 5.1 format and Word for Windows 2 format. If
you get the binhexed version, you'll have to run it through a binhex
decoder (widely available on Macs, and a PC version is available free by
anonymous ftp from boombox.micro.umn.edu in the directory pub/binhex).
You can also get the binhexed files simply by clicking on the
appropriate file while visiting the Meeting web site with your browser.
Your web browser may automatically decode the files, but then it may
not. You'll have to see.
The deadline for abstract submission if May 31, 1996. Abstracts must be
submitted in hard-copy form so we can put together an abstract book.
Formatting and mailing instructions are simple, and are posted on the
Meeting web site and our ftp site (the file is called "wcwmabs.txt").
If you can't get to them by either of those methods, send email to Mark
Edgley at aardvark at dauerdigs.biosci.missouri.edu and we'll send you an

slick web system. We will make all the electronically-received
abstracts available by ftp before the meeting. You can connect to the

Remember: please register and send in your abstracts EARLY. We look
forward to seeing you in sunny Vancouver!
