You are invited to attend the 20th International C. elegans Meeting. The meeting will be returning to the University of California, Los Angeles and will be held June 24-28, 2015.
GSA is proud to support the international community of C. elegans researchers, and sponsors the C. elegans genetics conference biannually. Conference attendees learn about cutting-edge research in a diverse array of topics, including: physiology, neurobiology, development, evolution, behavior, aging, ecology, gene regulation, genomics, and many more. In addition, this renowned conference allows you to network with premiere geneticists in the field, forge new collaborations, and of course experience the Worm ARt Show and the Worm Variety Show. The C. elegans conference also boasts many opportunities to learn about genetics education and career development.
The International C. elegans Meeting serves as a focal point for the C. elegans community allowing you to expand your visibility. Gain leads and highlight your products and services to an audience with buying power. Previous C. elegans meetings have led to the exchange of knowledge, ideas and methods, and have been vital in fostering the sense of excitement and the collegiality that characterize the field.
Based on past meeting attendance, we anticipate 1,650 participants and approximately 1,100 presentations this year. This meeting provides a forum that serves both C. elegans veterans and new-comers to the field. Our exhibition hall combines both the exhibits and over 1,000 posters.
The Genetics Society of America (GSA), founded in 1931, is the professional membership organization for scientific researchers and educators in the field of genetics. Our members work to advance knowledge in the basic mechanisms of inheritance, from the molecular to the population level.
GSA is dedicated to promoting research in genetics and to facilitating communication among geneticists worldwide including through its scholarly journals, GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, and professional conferences - such as those that focus on the genetics of many of the leading model organisms including C. elegans, Drosophila, fungi, mice, yeast, and zebrafish.
