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 XII will be held on the beautiful campus of The University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia from June 23 to 27, 2013. As with CANFLY XI, 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 many beautiful destinations in and around UBC and Vancouver. A majority of the fly labs in Canada have indicated they will have attendees, so we expect a fantastic meeting!
REGISTRATION AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED! Registration fee includes conference registration, housing, 4 breakfasts, 3 lunches, and 3 dinners.
