   The organizers describe their meeting as follows: Following on the
   broad success of the first “NK and NKT Cell Biology� meeting held at
   Keystone in 2008, we propose to organize the 2011 meeting “NK and NKT
   Cell Biology : Specificity and Redundancy of Innate Responses�. Our
   knowledge base in innate immunity has exploded over the past decade,
   and our understanding of innate immune mechanisms will soon impact in
   the clinics. Nevertheless, we still have much to learn about how NK
   cells and NKT cells shape innate and adaptive immune responses. This
   meeting will address issues related to the biological roles of these
   two specialized innate lymphocyte populations by bringing together NK
   and NKT cell experts to discuss their latest cutting-edge results on
   topics including NK/ NKT development, NK/ NKT cell ligand recognition,
   NK/ NKT activation and
