44th Mid-Atlantic Macromolecular Crystallography Meeting and 11th Annual SER-CAT Symposium
April 23-26, 2014 University of Maryland, IBBR Shady Grove Campus
The joint 44th Mid-Atlantic Macromolecular Crystallography Meeting and the 11th Annual SER-CAT Symposium is now open for registration
and for abstract submission (both on the same form) through the website http://www.mid-atlantic.org/ . All abstracts must be submitted
by April 9, 2014. The joint conference will be held at the University of Maryland, Shady Grove campus in Rockville, MD on April 23-26, 2014.
There will be two keynote addresses, the first on Wednesday afternoon by Prof. B.C. Wang from the University of Georgia, and the second,
on Thursday afternoon by Prof. Wayne Hendrickson from Columbia University. There will also be a PHENIX workshop on Saturday.
All oral presentations are limited to 20 minutes and will be selected from abstract submissions.
The cost of the registration is $130 for the meeting, or $180 to include the Saturday (11am-5pm) PHENIX training workshop.
