The Friday Harbor Laboratories is a premier setting for a small conference. To optimize interactions between students, postdoctoral fellows, P.I.s, and invited speakers, the organizers are limiting the number of attendees to 150 on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for pre-conference registration was Thursday March 1, 2012 and pre-conference registration is now closed.
On-site Registration will be possible by cash or check (no credit cards). On-site conference charges are listed below.
The Society for Developmental Biology subsidizes the meeting and registration fees are scaled to benefit members of the SDB. If you renewed your membership or became a new member by February 1, 2012, you are guaranteed reduced rates on registration and housing. SDB requires several business days to process renewals and two weeks to process new memberships, so be sure you have received confirmation of your renewal or new membership before requesting the reduced rates at the NWDB conference.
Registration fees include the cost of the Program Booklet, all meals during the conference, and refreshments during the breaks, poster sessions, and social mixers, regardless of whether you choose to stay on the FHL campus or in the town of Friday Harbor. Shown below are the on-site registration and on-site housing costs based on SDB membership and academic status. Payment may be made by cash or check (no credit cards).On-Site Registration and On-site Housing Costs
