Holding a Satellite Meeting
All large international conferences are enriched by their satellite meeting programmes. Anyone wishing to hold a satellite symposium or workshop in association with HGM2006 is invited to submit an outline proposal to HUGO. Proposals should be received as soon as possible so that overlap of dates and topics can be avoided.
For further details please email the HUGO Secretariat:
HUGO Members Meeting
Please note that the 2006 Annual General Assembly of HUGO members will take place in Helsinki during HGM2006. Details of the time and meeting room will be posted here and at the conference.

The Human Genome Variation Society and HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee are holding a joint meeting on 31st May in Room 209 of the Helsinki Fair Centre. A key topic of this meeting will be Copy Number Variation (see the HGNC Hot Topics page).
Wednesday 31st May 2006
08:55 -15:30 Room 209 (Registration from 08:30)
Please note places are strictly limited and registration will be on a first-come first-served basis with priority to HUGO/HGVS members. Details on the HGVS/HGNC Helsinki Meeting web site.
Utilising the Human Genome Sequence
One-day workshop open to all. The format of this workshop will be a series of short tutorials with practical sessions to enable participants to gain "hands-on" training in the use of public databases, web-based sequence analysis tools and to review the underlying data. A full colour manual will be given to all registered participants. See http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Info/workshops/hgm2006/ for full details.
Wednesday 31st May 2006
