Please join us for the Sixth International Workshop on Arylamine N-Acetyltransferases, to be held from Friday October 4th to Sunday October 6th, 2013 in Toronto, Canada. The NAT Workshops have been held regularly since 1998 in a variety of international locales, providing an informal, intimate and welcoming venue for both young and established scientists from around the world to learn about and share the latest research related to these important Phase II drug-metabolizing enzymes and the chemicals upon which they act. The Sixth NAT Workshop is a recognized satellite of, and immediately follows the 10th International ISSX Meeting that will also be held in Toronto from September 29th to October 3rd, 2013, so you may wish to attend both of these state-of-the-art meetings.

The Workshop will run from early in the afternoon of Friday October 4th until noon on Sunday October 6th at the University of Toronto's Chestnut Conference Centre, which is ideally situated in the heart of the downtown city core. It will consist of an opening Keynote Lecture, seven non-parallel Oral Presentation Sessions, one Nomenclature Discussion Session and one lunchtime Poster Session. Depending on the number of attendees, we will attempt to give all registrants who submit a scientific abstract the opportunity to present their research in an Oral Presentation Session if they so wish. The Poster Session is also available for those who prefer to showcase their work using this format, or in the event that there is insufficient room to accommodate all oral speakers.

If you have an interest in hearing or sharing information in these or any other emerging areas related to the NAT enzymes, then this is a meeting that you shouldn't miss! Enjoy both scientific and social interactions with your fellow NAT researchers, and also enjoy beautiful Toronto – Canada's largest city and its financial hub. Toronto has a lively and safe downtown area, cozy neighborhoods accessible by foot, taxi or transit, a mix of historic and modern architecture, world-class museums and galleries, abundant nightlife, and restaurants to suit every ethnic taste and price range. Toronto is also very pleased to host its annual Nuit Blanche outdoor arts festival on Saturday October 5th, so you may wish to experience a part of this memorable all-night cultural event after mingling with your friends and colleagues over great food and drink at the Workshop Banquet that will be held on Saturday evening.

We look forward to welcoming you in Toronto!

Chair, Meeting Organizing Committee
