The Biennial Canadian Drosophila Research Conference (“CANFLY”) has become the preeminent forum for the more than 70 laboratories working on Drosophila in Canada to meet, exchange ideas and foster collaborations. CANFLY was founded on the principle of an open and free exchange of ideas among researchers and, as such, time is given for both principal investigators and trainees to present their research. The primary goal of this meeting is to establish face-to-face interactions among laboratories working in Canada, which is often impossible given the distances between the major groups working in this area. Of course, we also welcome registrants from outside of Canada!
CANFLY XIII will be held on the beautiful campus of McGill University in Montréal, Québec from Sunday June 21 to Thursday June 25, 2015. As with CANFLY XI and XII, the conference will be one day longer than in previous years. This allows us to accommodate more platform presentations, as well as to provide an afternoon of free time for participants to explore the beautiful city of Montréal.
Please note that the Montreal International Jazz Festival begins on the day that CANFLY ends (June 25th), so book accommodation early should you wish to extend your stay in Montreal.
REGISTRATION AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS are now open.
Early-bird registration (ends March 15th): $300
Regular registration (ends April 15th): $350
Abstract submission ends April 15th.
