[Histonet] Region II Fall Symposium in Delaware This Year

Below is the draft copy of the program.  We can 
not complete all full speaker titles at this 
time.  The topics are correct for each speaker 
and the times.  The full abstracts and program 
will be out in later this month and posted on 
each states web site.  The cost per day is $80.00 
or $40.00 per half day. Students and retirees 
will pay half price with proper 
identification.  We will ask for registration as 
soon as possible as there will be an on-site 
registration penalty and you may also send in 
your registration with "funds pending" if your 
institution policy is slow and may not be ready before the meeting.

As the meeting is being held at the Delaware 
Technical and Community College we have a list of 
area hotels at the end of this e-mail.

Laboratories with multiple attendees should sent 
in all registration at the same time for a 
discount.  This will apply to laboratories with 2 
or more people attending on any combination of days.

We are offering the chance for anyone wishing to 
only come to see the Exhibits ONLY a fee of 
$10.00 per day.  This will not include any classes or lunch.
