Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the 1st German Mass Cytometry User Forum to be held on February 1st/2nd 2018, at the DRFZ in Berlin

The Forum provides a platform for mutual exchange of ideas, experience, and expertise around mass cytometry and its applications.
We want you to connect to each other, collaborate and give mutual feedback on your mass cytometry projects.

We have put together an exciting program featuring distinguished speakers in the field, workshops on computational data analysis and mass cytometry technology and reagents. We reserved plenty of time for discussion of projects to be selected from abstracts, and for a social evening with poster contributions.

Invited Speakers
Tyler Burns, Stanford
Tomáš Kalina, Prague
Hervé Luche, Marseille
Yvan Saeys, Ghent
Vincent van Unen, Leiden

The form provides space for asking YOUR mass cytometry question(s). We will pick questions to be discussed at the workshops.

Space is limited, and preference will be given to registrations accompanied by abstracts. Abstracts will be reviewed by the German Mass Cytometry Network Steering Committee, and submissions will be selected for a brief presentation and discussion in the plenum. All other abstracts will be presented as posters during the social evening.

The deadline for registration and abstracts is October 31rd 2017. We will confirm registrations and abstracts by November 26th 2017.
