This workshop will be devoted to understanding the structure and function of the mitochondrial inner membrane. It is intended to foster collaboration between the membrane physics community and the mitochondrion research community.
The format of the sessions is to take a prepared one hour talk and turn it into a careful and detailed cross examination lasting 4-5 hours. This format has proved in past years to be an outstanding way to rapidly understand new ideas, and we invite you to share in the learning experience that viewing each other's work under such scrutiny can provide. The discussions aim to be constructive rather than critical, and all possible attempts will be made to relate the discussions to the topic of the
workshop and to foster discussions leading to collaboration.
Individual participants are expected to provide their own funding. Academic and research institutions have recognized the value of participating in the Center's activities and have been willing to pay for work performed at the Center. The Center helps arrange for housing thereby obtaining reduced rates for participants and families. See the website above for last year's rates. A registration fee of $160 is charged all participants regardless of duration of stay. Anybody requiring official letters of invitation should contact one of the organizers specifying their needs.
The Center offers an excellent way to meet collaborators from other institutions through coordinated visits. Extended stays are thus recommended. The Telluride locale, situated in an unspoiled valley near 4200 m high mountain peaks in the south west corner of Colorado, offers ample outdoor attractions making such stays enjoyable for families as well.
