Because of the rapid growth of the field (and those long bus rides to get to housing), we have decided not to have the next International C. elegans Meeting at Cold Spring Harbor. The meeting will be held instead at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. The meeting dates are June 1-5, 1991. The setting seems equally as pleasant if not more so than CSH, and the cost of the meeting should be much cheaper. In addition, the meeting planning office at the University says that it can send abstract books to people before the meeting. We will be sending registration materials to subscribers of the Newsletter after the New Year and will have additional notices about the meeting in the next Newsletter. We are also looking into reduced air travel for the meeting; this will also be described in a later Newsletter. One final note: money is going to be tight. We have applied for several grants and will apply for other funds, but nothing is guaranteed. If you know of funds that we can apply for, please let us know as soon as possible. We would like to have as many people attend the meeting as possible. Organizing Committee: Marty Chalfie, Cynthia Kenyon, Scott Emmons and Phil Anderson
