The 17th Fragile X/ Early Onset Cognitive disorders Workshop will take place in Strasbourg  from Sunday sept 27 to Wednesday September 30. We have secured some extra funding to invite some key speakers and allow cheaper fees for PhD students, young postdocs or genetic counselors, and MDs in training.


The meeting site is IGBMC, our impressive institute that has a very nice auditorium of 180 seats (www.igbmc.fr). It is located in the outskirts of Strasbourg, connected by our excellent tram system to our beautiful historical city, and adjacent to a forest where addicts of jogging can stimulate their production of endorphins before sessions.

You will have the opportunity if you wish to visit the Mouse Clinical Institute (ics-mci.fr on Sunday 27th September 2015 on a first come, first served basis (two groups of around 10 people each at 10h00-12h00 and 10h30-12h30). We will inform you if you can participate to the visit as soon as possible. MCI visits are now fully booked

Personal emails have been sent to inform registrants who submitted abstracts whether these have been accepted for oral presentation or as poster.

Best regards, and we hope that many of you will make it to Strasbourg,
