Abstract : Among the features of the meeting worthy of note are the first time appearance of tutorial sessions for graduate and postdoctoral fellows as well as investigators interested in entering new fields of inquiry. At the 1996 meeting the formal models used in chronobiology were enunciated as well the principles of photobiolgy and the use of genetic and molecular approaches that have come to play an important part in this field. A second innovation was the 'news at 4' feature in which program chairs presented brief synopses of the high points of their sessons. Because there were parallel sessions through much of the meeting this afforded an opportunity for people who were unable to attend a particular session to get an overview of the main points made by the speakers.
