Annual Meeting-American Society for Photobiology

Tue Jun 1 14:56:00 EST 1993

Dear Colleague:

Re:  American Society for Photobiology Annual Meeting

     The following meeting announcement is being brought to
your attention because photosynthetic research is an
important focus of this year's meeting.  Symposia relating to 
this topic are listed below.  In addition, this year's ASP award 
lecture is being presented by Dr. Kenneth Sauer on photo-
synthetic light reactions.  We hope to encourage attendance 
and participation in the meeting by a large number of 
researchers in your field.

     The meeting is being held at the Chicago Marriott Downtown.
Reservations may be made through June 5 at the meeting rate of
$99 per night, single or double occupancy, by calling the Marriott
directly at 312-836-0100, fax 312-836-6139.  Works in Progress
posters, which will be presented June 29, are still being accepted 
through June 3.  If you wish to contribute, the title of the poster, 
with the names and affiliations of all contributing authors, may be
faxed to the ASP Secretariat at 706-721-3048.

     Registration fees for non-ASP members are $175 for advance
registration before June 15; $190 at the meeting.  Non-member
registration includes a one-year membership in the Society.

     For additional information, please contact the Secretariat at 
(phone) 706-721-2601 or the fax number above or contact me
via Internet at RODGERS at OPIE.BGSU.EDU
