Meeting: Drosophila functional biologists/physiologists

We all know about the famous Drosophila meeting, which will next be held in 
San Diego in March. However, by a happy coincidence, the world's leading 
physiology congress (the IUPS) will be in town on exactly the same dates. 
Kevin Strange and I have contributed to the 'Genomics' theme of this latter 
meeting, and it has some very interesting model organism/genomics themes.
The program is at http://www.iups2005.org/symposia.htm
Our starting position in getting fly, worm, mouse and Arabidopsis into the 
IUPS meeting is that functional genomics will increasingly involve people 
who do real function, rather than just molecular biology. If this strikes a 
chord with you, and if you would like to interact with/set out your wares 
to the world's biggest physiological congress, please consider contributing 
papers to this meeting too! You're only a taxi ride away.
(In answer to your unspoken question, I've already asked the organisers of 
both meetings if they would permit free cross-registration, but I'm still 
waiting to hear from the fly meeting organisers.)
