We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on RNA Modifications and Epitranscriptomics which will be held in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm in the evening of Monday November 8, and will conclude after lunch on Friday November 12, 2021.
The conference will include eight oral sessions and one poster session covering the latest findings across diverse topics in RNA modifications and Epitranscriptomics.

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow's talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.
We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $100-$500) awards. For more details, please visit Stipends
We look forward to seeing you at Suzhou in November, 2021.
