Dear Biomch-l readers,

While it makes little sense to broadcast a Dutch-spoken conference world-wide,
an exception seems warranted for the following one, because of the relatively
large Dutch membership on Biomch-l, and because the Abstracts book and (eventu-
al) Proceedings will be in English. Those among you interested in attending the
meeting or in receiving copies of the publications may get in touch with the
Organizing Committee mentioned below. Do so in due course, so as to enable them
to plan the number of participants (up to 90, there are some places left) and
the number of copies to be printed!
