History of Wnt meetings

Over the years, an informal series of meetings on Wnt signaling, called "The Wnt meeting" has been organized at several locations. These meetings have grown in attendance, from an initial small group in 1991 to more than 300 participants in 2009. Presentations are short and typically given by students or postdocs. Few or any speakers are invited. The atmosphere has always been lively and interactive. In addition, more formal meetings on Wnt-beta-catenin signaling have been organized in other contexts, such as Keystone meetings, or "European Wnt meetings". Here a list of "The Wnt meeting" in the past and a picture of the 1991 meeting.
