There is still an opportunity to attend this year's Gordon Research
Conference on Diffraction Methods in Molecular Biology, but you must
act quickly.  I attach the schedule as it stands now below.  
Not all titles are finalized (speakers please send your final title 
if you have not done so).

See website http://www.grc.uri.edu for more info on an application
and registration.
