Situated in a tranquil riverside setting, along Nova Scotia's 
beautiful Eastern Shore, the CNS meetings at Liscombe Lodge 
<www.liscombelodge.ca> provide a stimulating Conference 
experience.  The entire meeting - talks, meals, and social events 
- are taken in a group setting.  This provides attendees with 
opportunities for in-depth discussions among students and 
scientists from diverse backgrounds in a relaxed, friendly 
atmosphere.  In the immediate vicinity, there are numerous outdoor 
activities to enjoy before and after the sessions.

Abstract submission:  15 May 2008

Our Symposia are characterized by:

  * Longer conference presentations with open discussions and 
varied topics, serving both established and young scientists

  * Distinctive, intimate conference locations where members can
