Dear EMBL Alumni,

Please find attached the programme for our next EAA Meeting in Madrid (CNIC) on June 8th. As you can see, there is an interesting mixture of science and discussion about subjects that were highlighted as important in the recent questionnaire.

I hope you will find the programme interesting and be able to make it to the meeting.

Many of you have already confirmed attendance, if you have not done so yet, but would like to participate, please let me know, I would just like to make sure that there is enough coffee and food for everybody. If you have already said no, please ignore this, and sorry for sending it again.

In addition, the EMBL Alumni Association has been very understanding with our situation and has agreed to help us with 2.500 euros, so we will be able to cover PART of our expenses. If you are going to claim some of your expenses, please remember that you will need to keep receipts and invoices for transport. Where participants require reimbursement for petrol, we would need a hand-written confirmation of payment from them, together with their receipt from the petrol station.

I look forward to seeing you in Madrid.

Best wishes,
