An EMBO International Workshop on the
MOLECULAR AND DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY OF DROSOPHILA
will be held at Kolymbari, Crete (Greece)
June 19 - 25, 1994
The workshop will be co-sponsored by the University of Crete
and the Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
Institute of the Research Center of Crete
As has been the case in previous years, the objective of the workshop is to
discuss topics in gene organization and expression, early development, pattern
formation, developmental neurobiology and evolution. Approximately 80
participants will be selected by vote by the organizing committee from
applicants. The participants are expected to contribute to the subject
coverage. Applications should include a short summary of research interests
and a brief C.V. if such information is thought to be important in facilitating
the selection process. Please note that acceptance to the meeting is strictly
limited to the individual accepted.
The deadline for applications is January 10, 1994. For logistical purposes we
need to adhere strictly to this deadline. Applications should be sent to:

A registration fee of $400.00 will be remitted upon acceptance. Local expenses
in Crete will be covered. Participants are expected to finance their travel to
Crete. However, a small number of grants in aid for partial travel support may
become available. Preference will be given to junior investigators.
