Welcome! We are delighted to host this conference in Banff, Alberta! This meeting will cover a broad range of topics concerning the molecular and cellular biology of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. It will open on Sunday, May 14 at 5:30 PM with a reception followed by a plenary session with keynote speakers, and will end on Friday, May 19 at noon. The program will follow the tradition of previous meetings and include oral presentations, workshops, and poster sessions. Speakers will be selected from the abstracts by session chairpersons in conjunction with the organizers. Please see the program for a list of the topics and times for each session. We have also allowed a free afternoon on Tuesday for you to enjoy various planned activities, explore the area on your own, or just relax. Also, we have planned a special barbeque banquet on Thursday evening that we are sure you will enjoy!
