   Be a part of this exciting symposium!        On behalf of the organizing committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 6th International Symposium on Autophagy 2012 in Okinawa, JAPAN, a 5-day symposium which will be started on Sunday the 28th of October with an informal getting together reception and ends on Thursday the 1st of November.

The meeting venue Bankoku Shinryokan, which stands on the scenic Busena Point overlooking the East China Sea located on the middle part of the Okinawa Main Island (1,600 km away from Tokyo), will bring us together with southern comfort. "Bankoku Shinryo" means "bridge between nations", reflecting the hospitality of Okinawa (Ryukyu). Bankoku Shinryokan has been established as the main Convention Center for the 2000 Kyushu-Okinawa G-8 Summit. Set in an intimate environment in beautiful Okinawa, there will be plenty of opportunity for all participants to enjoy social activities and promote friendships.

Please make plans to join us for this insightful event. We look forward to welcoming you in Okinawa in 2012!
