The Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG) has the privilege to announce the

CIG Symposium 2011

“Genetics of Behavior”

June 20-21, 2011

Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG)

UNIL, Lausanne, Switzerland

This Symposium will be the 5th in the series of annual meetings at our institute, a new, dynamic research center of the University of Lausanne, enjoying the stunning backdrop of Lake Geneva and the Alps. By bringing together international leaders in the chosen field, these Symposia have rapidly become a major meeting in Switzerland and attract substantial numbers of researchers from across Europe and beyond. Further information about the CIG and previous Symposia are provided in the enclosed documents and on the website:

For “Genetics of Behavior”, we have designed a program that will discuss the many ways in which organisms behavior is influenced by their genes and how the interplay between the genetic and environmental contributions lead to individual variations in behavior. By bringing together the best researchers studying important, but diverse, aspects of this topic, we aim for a highly interactive Symposium that provokes new reflections on this fascinating research field.

With the annual CIG Symposiaa, the Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG) aims are:

• to bring together the best european and non-european scientists on a particular field of research of the CIG
• to promote interactions between junior and senior scientists
• to help the dialogue between scientists using different approaches on a similar topic

The conference will feature oustanding speakers. In addition, a poster session will be organized and some speakers will be selected to give short talks on the basis of the abstracts submitted. Inscription fees are kept to a minimum. We encourage you to join this event and to submit an abstract of your work.
We are looking forward to meeting you at the CIG symposium 2011.
