To register, go to www.unbf.ca/vip/IVC/registration.html and submit
your abstract at www.unbf.ca/vip/IVC/abstracts.html by October 15th.
We welcome researchers studying other algae with an interest in the
evolution of multicellularity, cellular differentiation and
development, comparative genomics, and multilevel selection.
Please join us for the 1st International Volvox Conference (focused on
the green alga Volvox and its close relatives) to be held December
1-4, 2011 at the Biosphere 2, in Arizona, USA (www.b2science.org/).
This is the first of what we hope to be a long series of Volvox
meetings to be held every other year, alternating with the
Chlamydomonas meetings. For additional information and updates
(including preliminary program, registration and abstract submission
deadlines) please visit the Conference page at
www.unbf.ca/vip/IVC/index.htm.In addition to sessions (contributed
papers and posters) on various aspects of the biology, taxonomy,
ecology, development and evolution of Volvox and its relatives, we are
organizing a workshop on Volvox genetics and genomics that will
provide a forum to discuss emerging tools and methods (or ways of
adapting those that have been developed in other systems) to enhance
our understanding of genetically-controlled processes in this group of
Thank you and hope to see you all at the Biosphere 2 in December!
