Dear friends and colleagues,

We have the pleasure to announce the organization of the next Wilhelm Bernhard Workshop. The 21st International Workshop on the Cell Nucleus will be held in Ustron, Poland, from the 31 August to the 4 September 2009. Ustron is a charming small resort in the Beskidy Mountains 60 km south from Katowice, the capital of the Silesia district.

The Wilhelm Bernhard Workshop is a biennial event focusing on functional and structural aspects of the nucleus and its component structures. The Workshop fosters interaction and cooperation between scientists from all parts of the world and especially encourages the active participation of young scientists. The major aim of the Workshop is to create a multidisciplinary meeting representing most research approaches used in studies on the cell nucleus structure, functions, and their relationships, as well as to give young scientists the opportunity to present their research within a fairly small circle of competent colleagues and to meet experienced colleagues in their field of research.

We hope to see you in Ustron!
