You are invited to attend the International C. elegans Meeting.
GSA is proud to support the international community of C. elegans researchers, and sponsors the C. elegans genetics conference biannually. Conference attendees learn about cutting-edge research in a diverse array of topics, including: physiology, neurobiology, development, evolution, behavior, aging, ecology, gene regulation, genomics, and many more. In addition, this renowned conference allows you to network with premiere geneticists in the field, forge new collaborations, and of course experience the Worm ARt Show and the Worm Variety Show. The C. elegans conference also boasts many opportunities to learn about genetics education and career development.
This Meeting is part of 2016 - The Allied Genetics Conference
Bringing Genetics Together:
Unique jamboree of seven genetics and model organism communities
Access to a wide range of scientific sessions, networking opportunities, and more
Cross-cutting keynote sessions, workshops, and posters
Celebration of 100th anniversary of journal GENETICS
Affordable and accessible to all career stages
The Allied Genetics Conference (TAGC) is a meeting that, for the first time, brings together seven different genetics research communities for a one of a kind event. The conference will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando, Florida. Each of the following communities, C. elegans, ciliates, drosophila, PEQ, yeast and zebrafish will hold their regular meeting but will also have the advantage of being able to attend sessions offered by the other communities. Register for one and have access to all! The conference provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of cutting-edge science in the area of model organism research. TAGC is expected to attract over 3,000 scientific attendees, over 100 exhibiting companies and the attention of the media.
The Genetics Society of America (GSA) brings you thousands of customers each year along with cutting-edge science, networking opportunities, world-class poster sessions, and so much more at our many conferences. TAGC 2016 will bring together six model organism communities along with a new focal area in Population, Evolutionary and Quantitative Genetics giving you a unique opportunity to connect with many communities at one show. Combined attendance at the most recent meetings numbers over 4,000. So instead of exhibiting multiple times, you can address a wider audience by attending just one show - TAGC 2016! TAGC 2016 will be held at the Orlando World Center Marriott, July 13-17, 2016 (offical exhibit dates July 13-16). The exhibit hall will also be home to nearly 2,500 posters, so your booth will see thousands of potential customers.
Show attendees your innovation, ingenuity, and imagination!
The International C. elegans Meeting serves as a focal point for the C. elegans community allowing you to expand your visibility. Gain leads and highlight your products and services to an audience with buying power. Previous C. elegans meetings have led to the exchange of knowledge, ideas and methods, and have been vital in fostering the sense of excitement and the collegiality that characterize the field.
Based on past meeting attendance, we anticipate 1,650 participants and approximately 1,100 presentations this year. This meeting provides a forum that serves both C. elegans veterans and new-comers to the field. Our exhibition hall combines both the exhibits and over 1,000 posters.
The Genetics Society of America (GSA), founded in 1931, is the professional membership organization for scientific researchers and educators in the field of genetics. Our members work to advance knowledge in the basic mechanisms of inheritance, from the molecular to the population level.
GSA is dedicated to promoting research in genetics and to facilitating communication among geneticists worldwide including through its scholarly journals, GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, and professional conferences - such as those that focus on the genetics of many of the leading model organisms including C. elegans, Drosophila, fungi, mice, yeast, and zebrafish.
