The 1983 C. elegans meeting is scheduled for May 4-8 again at Cold Spring Harbor. We tried for a later date, but prior commitments to regular groups, like RNA tumor viruses, shut us out, so we remain in the same time slot. The meeting will be the same length as last year and we would welcome suggestions for any changes in meeting format. The cost of registration and room and board will likely be about 360/person. Because of Sam Ward's foresight, we are in the favorable position of already having NIH support for the 1983 meeting. The level of support is generous by current standards, but with the increased cost of the meetings and of travel and hopefully with more participants, the proportion of costs that we will be able to pay will be significantly less than in 1981. We will request additional funding from NSF, but given our already favorable situation, we probably can't expect much. We urge everyone to seek their own support from research grants and other sources, so that we can help as many as possible to attend.
