>There will also be the possibility of submitting abstracts, either related
>to the symposium or on other branches of the anatomical sciences, for
>communication as either posters or 10 minute talks.
>Speakers confirmed so far include:
> >Dr Andy Pitsillides (Royal Veterinary College, London. UK) Early effects
>of embryonic movement: a shot out of the dark'
> >Professor Dr Michael Kjaer (Bispebjerg Hospital, Copenhagen, Denmark)
