20th Biennial Evergreen International Phage Meeting
An international planning committee is currently making detailed plans for the 20th Evergreen Phage Meeting, which will be held Aug. 4-9, 2013. As usual, the meeting will formally beginning with a BBQ gathering starting about 2 PM on the 4th, with keynote talks followed by a gathering in the poster room that evening. The final formal session will end about 6:30 PM on the 8th. Friday Aug. 9, the usual day trip to Mt. Rainier is planned. The registration fee will cover dorm rooms and most meals from Aug. 4 until Aug. 9. Some rooms in the dorm will be available starting Aug. 2 and going until Aug. 11, by prior arrangement. Online registration is expected to be available starting in February, by which time the precise registration fees for students, academics and corporate participants will have been determined; they should be fairly similar to those for the 2011 meeting. There will be some funds to support registration fees, primarily for students and for participants from underdeveloped countries; applications for such assistance should be turned in at least by April 1, as should requests for support letters for visa applications and draft abstracts if you want to be considered for giving an oral presentation. The amount of such support available will depend on the success of our various fundraising efforts.

Registration forms can be submitted electronically here. If you have any questions about the registration or submit incorrect or missing information please contact tescphage@gmail.com to have it answered or resolved.

Please review our guidelines before submitting abstracts for presentations.
