Letter from Centre National De La Recherche Scientifique to Marshall W. Nirenberg
Nirenberg began his research in developmental neurobiology when the field was still rather young and underdeveloped. This letter from the Centre National De La Recherche Scientifique in Strasbourg informs Nirenberg that the first meeting of the International Society for Developmental Neuroscience will be held in June 1980. A list of potential Symposia is included.

Dear ISDN Member,
The 1st Meeting of the International Society for Developmental Neuroscience will be held in Strasbourg on June 30th - July 4th, 1980. The programme includes the following Symposia (given by invited speakers):
- Early stages of nervous system development
- Factors of growth and differentiation
- Synaptogenesis in the peripheral nervous system
- Synaptogenesis in the central nervous system
- Neuronal-glial interactions
- Genetic and environmental factors affecting nervous system development
- Behavioural and clinical aspects of nervous system development.
Contributions are invited for poster presentations, and Round Tables discussions, based on these, will be organized. Those interested in attending should contact the organizers, Prof. G. Vincendon and Dr. G. Gombos (Centre de Neurochimie du CNRS, 11 rue Humann, 67085 Strasbourg Cedex, France). Registration fee $75 (for members of the Society) and $100 (for non members). Abstracts, Registration and Hotel accommodation forms should be sent to the organizers by April 1st, 1980.
Abstracts: No special form for Abstracts will be sent to authors. Draw in pencil a 15 cm x 24 cm frame on heavy white typing paper. Type (new ribbon, preferably electric typewriter) within this frame. Spacing can be at your convenience, but remember that in the Abstract book, the abstracts will be reduced to about 2/3rd the actual size. Erase the pencil frame. Mail abstracts between two pieces of cardboard. N.B.: To write on the envelope "Do not bend" without including cardboards inside the envelope is useless. Apparently mailmen take perverse pleasure in crumpling envelopes thus labelled.
Registration and hotel accommodation: It is not necessary to ask for additional forms. Photocopies of them may be used if needed.
Authors from overseas: Please don't forget to check that your secretary sends Abstracts and Applications "Air Mail". According to our experience, not everybody is aware that about two months are needed for the surface mail from U.S.A. or India to reach Strasbourg.
Italian participants: All mail to and from Italy should be "express" in order to arrive in time.
