Another one from Cell Press: free symposia!

I've been increasingly liking Cell Press over the past few months, as it provides us with several tools that increase communication and make the science they publish, more amenable [See More on Science 2.0: Cell Press and a few of Cell Press' Snapshots we've posted here].

I've just learned about Cell Press LabLinks (and apparently it has been around since '06) [From Cell Press online]:

Cell Press LabLinks are FREE, one-day symposia organized by local scientists in conjunction with Cell Press editors. Each LabLinks features local and keynote speakers discussing a unified topic in order to foster interactions between colleagues working on related questions – colleagues across town, across the street or even across the hall.

The upcoming meeting, on "Molecular Pathogenesis of Leukemia and Lymphoma", will take place on Friday June 5, 2009, at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston, MA.

The only thing you have to do is register, as seating is limited.

Also (and this is just awesome), by registering you enter into a contest (10 registrants will be randomly chosen) in which a one-year personal subscription to the Cell Press journal of your choice will be awarded!

Check the upcoming meetings here and see if there is a Lablink symposium coming your way.
