Why Attend?  Come put your Western Regional ASPB (W-ASPB) dues to work for you!

  • Has a slow economy prevented you from attending conferences?
    The W-ASPB meeting is an inexpensive alternative supplemented by regional ASPB dues.
  • Have you ever noticed that it is difficult to find and meet scientists at large conferences?
    A smaller meeting offers the perfect opportunity to meet prestigous scientists in a  more intimate environment.  This is the perfect opportunity to meet local scientists and to forge new collaborations.
  • Do you have a postdoc or senior graduate student with a good story to tell?
    Provide them with an opportunity to make a presentation of their research in a congenial environment.
  • Do you wish you could afford to take a promising undergraduate student to a conference?
    This meeting is an excellent chance to pile your lab into a car and attend a conference with high quality talks. Why not take your lab to a conference?
