9th Dutch Chromatin Meeting - October 10 & 11, 2011

“Chromo9”, the 9th Dutch Chromatin meeting, will be held October 10th & 11th 2011 at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). The final program, as well as precise location will be sent to registered participants before the 30th of September.

To register, please find the registration form below. Registration and attendance of the meeting is free of charge. Lunch and drinks will be provided.

From the abstracts a selection will be made for oral presentations. You will be notified before September 30th 2011 if your abstract has been selected for an oral presentation. Besides oral presentations, there will be poster flash presentations and of course the poster session itself. A jury will select the best 3 poster flashes to be rewarded with an opportunity to present your work in a short talk the next day. The jury will also select the best poster to be awarded with an unique prize. All abstracts will be bundled into an abstract book.

Our email list of participants is unlikely to be complete. Please pass this email on to the members of your group or any other interested persons.

We are looking forward to hosting you all in Groningen on October 10th & 11th 2011.
