Dear All,


This is a reminder concerning the next GREAT plenary meeting which will

The Plenary is formed from two elements, a full EWASS Science Symposium

11-12 Jul 2013, with the special meeting on Wed 10 Jul 2013.

the link to the registration page and the current programme and agenda
details. Registration is handled directly through the EWASS pages at with early
registration closing now set at *31 May 2013*. (After that date - the
registration fee rises - details on the registration page).

The Symposium nature of the Plenary allows for interested individuals
