Iberian Chapter meeting postponed to March 2012

Dear alumni,

Our Meeting has been postponed to March 2012. Please find the details below.

[from an e-mail written by María del Mar Vivanco, October 14th, 2011]

Dear Alumni,

At the end of September we wrote to you regarding the EMBL Alumni Iberic Chapter meeting in Mallorca.

Many of you wrote back supporting the idea of having and open and deep discussion about a number of important issues that we will be facing in the immediate future. Unfortunately, due to the short notice of the announcement, few could confirm their attendance.

We believe that it is important to engage as many alumni as possible in these initiative, therefore, we have decided to postpone the meeting to March next year.

In the meantime more people will have the opportunity to participate in the preparatory discussions and to suggest different topics for the conference.

Our intention is to get funding to support the meeting, but for our actions to be efficient it would be necessary to have an estimate of the number of potential attendees. We will follow soon with a short questionnaire about content and future plans for the conference.

We apologize to those of you who have made plans to attend at the end of October, but the meeting is simply postponed, not cancelled, and it is going to be even better!

All the best,

Daniel and Maria
