Dear Colleagues,


The next Winter Conference of the European Society for Molecular Imaging on “IMAGING THE DEVELOPMENT” might be of interest for you.


The one-week conference will take place from 19-24 January 2014 at the Ecole de Physique in Les Houches, France.


The set-up is very similar to the Gordon Conferences or the original Keystone symposia in the US. It would be great if you could join us in the French Alps.


Deadline for abstract submission is 8 October 2013 - see!
