This is the final announcement of the Sixth East Coast Regional Meeting on 
Protozoology, to be held June 21-23, 1995 at Union College, Schenectady, New 
York, USA. Sponsored by the Society of Protozoologists (but open to both 
members and non-members), this meeting offers researchers and students a 
forum in which to discuss their latest findings in all areas of the field. 
Platform sessions focus on nutrition, physiology, motility, biochemistry, 
immunology, genetics, morphology, taxonomy, structural & molecular biology, 
ecology, and evolution. 
On June 22nd the meeting includes a workshop session at the Wadsworth Center 
in Albany, with a roundtable discussion on waterborn protozoa as well as a 
tour of the David Axelrod Institute. A vendor display will also be held. 
Schenectady is particularly lovely this time of year, and harness racing 
fans are happily reminded that the Saratoga flat track is a short trip away. 
The NY capital region is also the site of numerous historical landmarks. The 
Albany airport is 13 miles from the meeting site, and Amtrack and bus 
terminals are conveniently situated in downtown Schenectady. A special rate 
of $50 per night for up to quadruple occupancy is available to attendees at 
the Days Inn of Schenectady; call them directly at (518) 370-3297 by June 6
