Dear members of the choanoflagellate community,
We write to announce the dates for the 2017 International Choanoflagellate Workshop, ask whether you think you will attend, and invite recommendations for keynote speakers.
The meeting will be held from Wednesday, May 31 to Saturday, June 3, 2017 at the University of California, Berkeley.
Please indicate below whether you think you will be able to attend. This is not an official registration, but will help us apply for funding to reduce the cost of attendance. When we have finalized the cost of attendance and confirmed our keynote speaker, we will send the official registration and information for travel and lodging.
Please respond by September 30, 2016. If you have any colleagues who would be interested in this meeting, please feel free to forward this email.
We look forward to seeing you on May 31, 2017 to share exciting developments in choanoflagellate biology.
Best, Ella Waters (graduate student, King Lab) and David Booth (post-doc, King Lab)email@example.com
