Dear Colleague,

The French Societies for Developmental Biology (SFBD) and for Cell
Biology (SBCF) will organise a joint summer meeting (July 15-19 1998) on
the Luminy campus near Marseille on the French Mediterranean coast. The
title of this gathering, which will be held in English, is "Cell
Communication and Autonomy in Development". Its aim is to present an
up-to-date evaluation of the relative contribution of extrinsic and
intrinsic mechanisms in the determination of cell fates during animal
and plant development. This meeting will be of interest to biologists
interested in the cellular mechanisms that control patterning and

You will find below a detailed provisional programme of this meeting
which includes  three plenary lectures, two poster sessions and six
sessions. Each session will consist of five 30 minute talks by invited
speakers and 3 short (15') talks by young scientists selected from
participants. The registration and accommodation costs of these selected
participants will be refunded by the societies.

The following attractive meeting charges, including registration and
board accommodation on the campus, will apply:

SFBD/SBCF members       1700 FF
Non members 1900 FF

SFBD/SBCF members       1900 FF
Non members                    2100 FF

An additional charge of 200 FF will apply for  registrations postmarked
