ABSTRACT The Spanish Society of Developmental Biology (Sociedad Española de Biologia del Desarrollo - SEBD) has been organizing periodic meetings for over 10 years now, since its first Congress in 1996 (Leioa, Vizcaya). The objective of these Congresses is to gather Developmental Biology researchers from Spain and different parts of the world, for interaction and exchange of ideas. After the successful meetings in Leioa (1996), Barcelona (1999, the only all-English one so far), Málaga (2001) and Santander (2004), it was time to hold the 5th venue.
