Please also note that oral abstracts for the Proteomics Forum Malaysia, which has been incorporated into the 10th APC, will also end on the 28th June. This forum is complimentary for all delegates registered to attend the 10th Australian Peptide Conference (you must however indicate you will be attending via the ‘add-ons’ section of your registration). For those wishing only to attend the Proteomics Forum there will be a one day registration fee of $150 (students $75). Please email Maryanne Mackinlay at email@example.com on how to register for the day only.

Looking forward to seeing you all in September.

Previous Announcement (May 15, 2013)
With just under four months to go before the commencement of the 10th Australian Peptide Conference, we are pleased to report that the preparations are continuing to go smoothly and we are assured of a scientifically stimulating and rewarding meeting at this spectacular venue to celebrate the 10th meeting, and 21st anniversary of the Association.
Early Bird Registration
The “early bird” deadline of 31st May is now just three weeks away. Later registration is, of course, possible up to the time of the conference but at a slightly higher cost.
The 31st May is also the closing date for the submission of abstracts for ORAL presentations. We have secured an outstanding list of invited speakers and will be selecting the remaining oral presentations from the submitted abstracts. As always the poster sessions will be a major focus of the meeting and poster abstracts will be accepted up until Friday 30th August to allow for late breaking topics.
Proteomics Forum, Malaysia
We are pleased to announce that the Proteomics Forum, Malaysia will be incorporated into the 10th Australian Peptide Symposium, with a full days program on Sunday 8th Sept. This symposium is at no charge for all delegates registered attending the 10th Australian Peptide Conference. For those wishing only to attend the Proteomics Forum there will be a one day registration fee of $150 (students $75). Full details on registration and abstract submission can be found on our home page (http://www.peptideoz.org/).
International Conference on Natural Products and Health 2013
This appealing satellite meeting will be held from the 5th -7th September, 2013 at the School of Biological Sciences (SBS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and will cover the most recent and impressive developments in the area of natural products and health. It will examine current practices and advances in new generations small molecules, peptides and protein biologics from plants and animals. Their impact on western and eastern medicine and healthcare will be discussed. Full conference details can be found at http://www.nph2013.org/
Student & Early Career Travel Bursaries
There will be a limited number of Travel Bursaries available to postgraduate students and early career researchers (must be within 3 years of completing a PhD) to help towards the cost of attendance at the 10th Australian Peptide Symposium. Applications should be made by email to Mibel Aguilar at firstname.lastname@example.org including; A letter of request; A copy of your submitted abstract; If you are a PhD student, a letter of support from your PhD supervisor confirming your status as a PhD student; If you are an early-career researcher, a letter of support from your immediate supervisor and evidence of your graduation.
Accommodation is available at the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang resort and the Shangri-La Goldens Sands resort for reduced conference rates! We encourage all participants to book accommodation now via their registration or by revisiting their registration dashboard, as once the earlybird deadline (31st May) hits unfortunately we can not guarantee these reduced rates. Please note, due to the currency conversion you will not be required to make payment until your arrival at the resort – to secure your booking, credit card details will be required in due time. To view hotel rooms, and rates available- please click here.
Those of you who have yet to book your travel should do so as soon as possible as flights are currently reasonably priced but will inevitably become more expensive as the seats are filled. Those delegates traveling internationally are asked to ensure that their travel requirements are correct.
We look forward to catching up with you all in September for oustanding science and great camaraderie in the beautiful setting of the Golden Sands resort.
Until then, very best wishes to you all
