The 2014 Neurospora conference at Asilomar conference grounds in Pacific Grove, CA will be held March 6-9, 2014. Registration is now open and a large proportion of the talks will be chosen from the abstracts. Deadline for registration is Dec 31, 2013 but sign up soon to get your preferred housing.
The Neurospora satellite meeting will be held just prior to the 2014 European Fungal Genetics conference in Seville, Spain. Additional the 11th International Aspergillus Meeting (Asperfest), and meetings for each of Fusarium, Dothideomycete, Colletotrichum and Mycorrhizal Genomics Initiative will be held just prior to or after the conference. Sign up soon (before 16-Decemeber) to receive reduced participation fees.
Please see the following meeting sent on behalf of the Neurospora Policy Committee – and don’t forget to sign up for ECFG11 too!
Continuing what has become an exciting tradition, we will hold a Neurospora satellite meeting the day after the ECFG11 at the University Marburg, Germany. We are looking forward to a day of talks and discussions on all of the new developments in Neurospora research. Similar to the meetings before, we would like to have at least one talk from each attending lab – students and post-docs are especially encouraged to present their work. Please register through the ECFG site (http://www.ecfg.info/). If you wish to give a talk, please send us a tentative title and a short abstract via email by January 9, 2012.
We will meet on Tuesday, the 3rd of April at 9:00 a.m. until sometime in the (late) afternoon. We will provide you with more information on the program and venue, once we know who would like to give a presentation.
Registration fees are:
25 Euro for students and postdocs
35 Euro for PIs
The fee covers lunch and coffee breaks
We are very much looking forward to meeting you in Marburg!

I am preparing to read through the abstracts submitted for the 26th Fungal Genetics Conference in choosing talks for my session and I wondered if there were any changing trends in the topics over the years. While I won’t put up the Wordle for this year’s abstracts till the booklet is published, I thought I’d see how the topics trended in the last few years for some of these meetings. Will be fun to do this for a few more years back to see whether real trends emerge.
The data is a little cleaned up but the text included institution and individual names so things like university and department show up as prominent in some of these graphs.
