We would like to invite you
cordially to participate at the third “Retrovirus Assembly
Meeting – RAM2008”, which will be held in Prague from the
evening of Saturday the 4 th of October to the afternoon of Wednesday
the 8 th of October 2008.
The first two meetings in
2000 and 2004 represented a great opportunity for investigators to
exchange information and ideas, as well as experience the cultural
delights of one of the most beautiful European cities.
As before, the program will
again consist of 8 sessions, where a limited number of invited talks
will be followed by an extensive discussion period, with opportunities
for limited presentations by meeting participants. In addition, poster
presentations are encouraged.
The registration fee of 750 € includes accommodation, food and local transportation.
In order to plan the
logistics of the meeting, which as before will be limited to 70
participants, it would be helpful if you could promptly reply to this
invitation indicating whether you plan to attend and how many
colleagues from your laboratory will join you. The organization of the
meeting requires almost precise planning, as most of the accommodation
capacity in Prague will be already booked (and in most cases even
pre-paid) for the period of the meeting. We would like all aspects of
the meeting to run smoothly so that you may relax and enjoy both the
scientific program and the city of Prague. Therefore, please return the registration form as soon as possible. If you encounter any problems during registration, contact us on this e-mail.
We are also planning a
post-conference satellite meeting on “Assembly as a Therapeutic
Target” outside of Prague in northern Bohemia at the Chateau
Liblice, http://www.chateau-liblice.com/ ,
(departure on the afternoon of the 8 th and returning to Prague on the
evening of the 9 th). The satellite meeting will require an additional
fee (250 €) for all participants, invited and paying, to cover
both the trip and two additional nights accommodation in Prague (to
hold your room and for the night after the satellite conference).
Please indicate your interest in participating in the satellite meeting
and to pay the additional fee in your registration.
We would additionally
appreciate your help by providing complete information in the
registration and also your willingness to share a room (if possible).
In this case, please indicate a potential roommate.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
We look forward to seeing you in Prague!
With the best regards,
The organizing Committee (Eric Hunter, Iva Pichova, Michaela Rumlova, Tomas Ruml, Mike Sakalian)
