Dear Colleague:

I hope that the following meeting may be of interest to you.  We have made
great efforts to cross the 'normal' boundary walls. Please come and argue
if you can, and bring your students and postdocs - there is no registration
fee! There has been an excellent response, but the more interested people
there, the better for the discussion.

The detailed programme and full details/forms etc are available on . I can email a copy to
anyone who would like me to.

Apologies for cross postings.

Best regards,

John Finney.

Meeting Summary

Are some biomolecular functions possible without water? Recent evidence
suggests the molecular-level requirements for water have been overstated.
By taking a constructively sceptical view, this meeting aims to identify
the real reasons for water's biological importance. Which molecular aspects
of water are functionally critical and why?
