Due to recent COVID-19 outbreaks and concern about the safety of conference attendees, as well as widespread bans on nonessential travel, both domestic and international, we have decided to postpone the CNLM spring meeting to a date to be determined. The scientific program is unchanged but new dates will be announced soon. Please stay tuned. 

Memory: It's About Time

May 14-15, 2020
Herklotz Conference Center (directions)

Program Chairs:
Aaron Bornstein and Lulu Chen

$125 Faculty; $60 students/postdocs/research staff*
No group registrations! Registration includes breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks, dinner, reception and printed conference materials.

Registration will first be open to CNLM Fellows and their laboratories, as well as alumni and guests. Registration will open to the wider community on March 15. Each attendee MUST register online. No group registrations will be processed. Advance registration is required for attendance; tthere will be no onsite registration. Early registration is encouraged as we expect the event to sell out quickly.

*If for any reason we are unable to hold the conference due to travel or institutional restrictions related to the coronavirus, we will postpone the conference to the fall. You will have the option to be refunded if you are unable to attend in the fall meeting.
