The 4th international chick meeting will be held in Sendai, Northern Japan, from August 29th to September 2nd, 2011. The meeting aims to build on previous meetings consolidating the links between the different disciplines within the bird community, exploring new frontiers in avian research and developing key community resources. The program is still being finalized, but session topics are listed on the website, and we are really happy that the plenary lecturers have all accepted. Despite the packed schedule, there will be plenty of chances for informal interactions, and break-out meeting. You can download the poster here.
