7th EAA Iberian Chapter Meeting - Last Minute Recommendations

Dear alumni,

Please, find below the last minute recommendations and Updated Programme for our Next Meeting, to be held at CNIC, Madrid, on June 8th, 2012.

[from an e-mail written by María del Mar Vivanco, June 4th, 2012]
Dear all,

The next EMBL Alumni meeting in Madrid is quickly approaching and there are a few things that I would like you to know before we meet in Madrid this Friday 8th:

- I am enclosing the final programme (please see attached [NB: updated version follows]). This includes a visit to the CNIC facilities at the end of the day. They would like me to tell them how many people will be interested in this visit (for organisation purposes). Please let me know if you plan to attend.

- From the CNIC they also tell me that it is necessary for you to have your DNI or passport with you, otherwise you will not be allowed to get in. They suggest to prepare a list in advance to make the entrance faster and more efficient in the morning. If you want, you can send me your DNI or passport number so that they will have the access cards ready in advance.

- They also inform me that there is no parking available for private cars and in the street the parking is not free.

- Those of you giving a presentation, please bring it ready in a pen-drive (or DVD or CD, if easier for you).

I think that this is all for now. Those of you travelling from outside Madrid have a safe journey. I look forward to meeting you in Madrid.

Best wishes,
