Chemical Biophysics Symposium, Toronto, March 19 - 21, 2004



 First Announcement
 Chemical Biophysics Symposium 2004
 Toronto, Canada
 March 19-21, 2004

We are pleased to announce that the third annual Chemical Biophysics Symposium will be held in Toronto, Canada on March 19-21, 2004. Chemical Biophysics is an emerging interdisciplinary field bridging the physical sciences and biology. The past two meetings were overwhelmingly successful in bringing together a diverse set of researchers and stimulating the exchange of ideas in an informal environment, and this year will build upon that success.
 
The meeting will be held on the campus of the University of Toronto, with inexpensive rooms available in nearby hotels at special rates. Toronto is an exciting, diverse city with many attractions, ranging from excellent museums to fine dining. Since Toronto is the largest urban centre in Canada, travel to and from the city is easy and relatively inexpensive. The costs of the meeting are minimal (Students/Post-docs: $75-$85 (credit card) and all others $135-$145 in Canadian dollars), and will cover registration as well as several meals (see the web page for more details).
 
A number of outstanding researchers have agreed to speak at the Chemical Biophysics Symposium, including:
 Robert Blankenship, ASU
 Chris McKay, NASA-Ames
 David Weitz, Harvard
 Benoit Roux, Cornell Medical
 Steve Ferguson, UWO
 Terry Beveridge, Guelph
 Michelle Wang, Cornell
 
The bulk of the meeting will consist of oral presentations and posters selected from submitted abstracts. In order to keep the meeting informal, the number of attendees will be limited to 150 researchers, also selected on the basis of submitted abstracts. We strongly encourage you and any interested colleagues to visit the conference web page, submit an abstract, and attend the third of what we hope will be many meetings devoted to growing field at the interface between the physical and biological sciences.
 Abstract submission deadline: February 7, 2004
 
Early registration deadline: January 15, 2004 (rates increase by C$60 after this date)
