Registration now open for the 36th Great Lakes Mycology Meetings at Western

This event is cancelled: see the announcement.

Dr. Greg Thorn of Western University writes:

Dear Mycologists and other fans of fungi:

The food, accommodations, general program and budget for our 36th annual Great Lakes Mycology Meetings are all arranged, and now all we need is you!

The meetings will commence with lunch at noon Saturday, followed by an afternoon of scintillating talks, posters & mingling, dinner followed by our plenary speaker Allison Walker, more great talks Sunday morning, and a wrap-up lunch. Your $90 (+HST) registration fee includes all of this, thanks to some generous support from the Faculty of Science and Department of Biology at Western. Private ($74+HST) or shared ($54+HST) accommodations are available at Ontario Hall on campus, and the astute among you will notice that your accommodation also includes breakfast, so students and others on a budget, plan to pack some of your second breakfast along for the drive home! Accommodations are available for both Friday and Saturday nights, for those coming from greater distances, or just for Saturday night, for those who are closer. Registration without accommodation is of course also available, for locals and folks with friends or family in London.

As I mentioned in the first heads-up email, these meetings are a great opportunity for students to present to a focused but friendly, small group. The costs are kept as low as possible intentionally to allow supervisors to bring their whole lab. I encourage you to register early, before someone invites you to spend that weekend painting the basement or … but never fear, I will send monthly reminder emails.

Registration is now live at: https://conference.has.uwo.ca/Register/default.aspx?code=C000828

The link for accommodations at Ontario Hall will come in your emailed registration receipt.
