POSTER SESSIONS: There will be two poster sessions. A few platform
presentations will be chosen from submitted poster abstracts. Deadline:
May 15, 2009.

SYMPOSIUM PROGRAM: The symposium sessions will begin Thursday evening, June
11, and continue on Friday and Saturday, with additional events on Saturday
evening and Sunday morning. Speakers will present new insights from genomic
approaches in arthropods and describe the development of tools for genomic
analysis. Workshops will be held Thursday prior to the Symposium and Friday
evening. Activities will conclude by noon on Sunday, June 14.

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: Sunday morning will highlight a roundtable
discussion led by members of the ArthropodBase Consortium regarding the
generation of integrated arthropod genome databases and tools for genome
projects. Symposium attendees are invited to join the fun as we share our
progress by providing feedback on these projects and proposing new

REGISTRATION: The early registration fee is $295 ($150 for graduate and
undergraduate students) on or before March 20, and will include a welcome
reception Thursday evening, breakfast and lunch on Friday and Saturday, and
breakfast on Sunday.

VENUE: The symposium will take place at the historic Marriott Hotel in
downtown Kansas City. Participants are invited to stay Saturday night for
an optional evening of jazz and KC barbeque.
