Registration for the symposium is free, but if you are interested in attending then email Bob (Robert.Salmond@ed.ac.uk) or Dominik (dominik.ruckerl@ed.ac.uk) for catering purposes.

We encourage people to bring posters as there will be time at the end of the symposium to display these and it's a good opportunity to talk to other Edinburgh scientists about your work. Please let us know if you plan to being a poster so we can set out the right number of poster boards.
