First Annoncement for:

CRETE XIV
EMBO Conference
The Fourteenth International Workshop on the
MOLECULAR AND DEVELOPMENTAL
BIOLOGY OF DROSOPHILA
Kolymbari, Crete (Greece)
June 20-26, 2004

The objective of the workshop, which is supported by EMBO, is to  
discuss recent findings on gene organization and expression, early  
development, pattern formation, developmental neurobiology and the  
evolution of Drosophila. Approximately 80 participants will be selected  
from the applications, by a majority vote of the organizing committee.   
The participants are all expected to contribute to the subject  
coverage. Applications should include a short summary of research  
interests and a list of five recent, relevant publications to  
facilitate the selection process.  The deadline for receipt of  
applications is January 9, 2004.  For logistical purposes the  
organizing committee will adhere strictly to this deadline.  Please  
note that acceptance to the meeting is strictly limited to the  
individual accepted.  A registration fee of 500.00 Euro (or US $  
equivalent) must 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. Applications from junior investigators  
will be considered favorably, and at least 15% of the available  
positions will be allocated to investigators who have recently  
established their labs or who have not previously attended the meeting.  
The meeting lasts one week with morning (9:00-13:00am) and evening  
sessions (17:00-21:00pm).  All accepted participants are expected to  
remain for the entire meeting.
