Conference: Symbioses (Yosemite, CA)

Dear Colleagues,
The Fourth annual Symbiosis Workshop will take place on May 3-4, 2014
at the Sierra Nevada Research Institute, Yosemite National Park. 
This has become a great venue for cnidarian symbiosis researchers and this year's keynote speaker is one of ours, so we hope you can join us.

Keynote speaker: Dr. John Pringle from Stanford University.  “Aiptasia, a model system for dinoflagellate-cnidarian symbiosis”

Information about our meeting:

Why: Our goal is to better integrate scientists that focus on symbiosis
research. We plan to continue annual workshops at Yosemite as this site
is both beautiful and secluded. This will be our 4th annual meeting and
we are now attracting scientists from all over the country and overseas.

Who: The meeting is small by design (~50 participants) and we seek to
focus on scientists interested in both cooperation and symbiosis. In
the past we have covered a range of symbiosis topics from ecology and
evolution to molecular mechanisms in different model and non-model
systems. We would like to make room for a diverse group of people so we
will initially accept up to 3 lab members per group (including the PI)
on a first come first served basis.

When: The meeting will be held May 3-4, 2014, though we make accommodation
arrangements available for attendees to arrive on Friday the 2nd to
provide opportunities to enjoy the park. Since time at the conference is
limited, we ask attendees to submit an abstract and a preference (talk
versus poster). Priority will be given to those presenting. Abstract
and early bird registration are due on January 15th, 2014.

Where: SNRI has a set of cabins in Wawona and all within a short walk
of the conference room.  Costs: See details in the registration page. We
will only be able to accept credit card payments this year.
