These abstracts should not be cited in bibliographies. Material contained herein should be treated as personal communication and should be cited as such only with the consent of the author.
You are cordially invited to attend the Second International C. elegans Meeting, which will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The meeting will begin on Thursday evening, May 10, and finish after lunch on Sunday, May 10. Abstracts will be published in a booklet to be distributed at the time of the meeting. A fraction of the submitted abstracts will be scheduled for oral presentation, and the rest will be scheduled for poster sessions. Please indicate when you submit an abstract whether or not you would be willing to participate in a poster session. We suggest a limit of one oral presentation per subject per laboratory. Abstracts are to be submitted to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, and the deadline for submission of abstracts is March 10, 1979. We are receiving funds that will allow us to cover at least partially the travel and/or subsistence expenses of the meeting for a limited number of people who could not otherwise attend. We suggest that you first investigate local sources of support for your expenses. Applications for support are to be submitted to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and should include the following information: How much money is requested and for what and what contributions will be made to the meeting or what benefits to the individual will be derived from attendance. Some of our funds are reserved for young postdoctoral fellows and graduate students and submission of an abstract is not a prerequisite for support. The deadline for application for support is March 10, 1979. Please contact Gladys Kist, Meetings Secretary, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, P. O. Box 100, Cold Spring Harbor, New York 11724, for information concerning registration fees, registration forms, abstract forms, and instructions for preparing abstracts. We hope to see you at Cold Spring Harbor! Organizing committee: R. Edgar, R. Herman, J. Sulston, W. Wood.
