For students at Danish universities wishing to join the summer school and the conference (as a PhD course in advanced flow cytometry), the University of Copenhagen  will  cover  your  registration   fee  if  your  application  is  accepted. Otherwise, you will be charged either the early bird or the regular registration fee. All other students and attendees will be charged either the early bird or the regular registration depending on when the registration is done.

ABSTRACTS

We  welcome  abstracts  in  all  fields  of  flow  cytometry  including  clinical,  basic research, cell sorting and core facility management. The abstract submission page is now  open  and  deadline  for  submissions  is  on  Thursday,  01.  June  2017.  More detailed information regarding submission can be found after the creation of a user account in the abstract submission portal.

HOUSING

Housing  for  the  meeting  is  handled  by  KongresKompagniet  and  options  can  be found during the registration process.   Contracted rooms are limited so timely registration and reservation is important.

Annual Meeting DGfZ 2017 @ University of Applied Sciences in Jena
Oct 4 – Oct 6 all-day

Dear colleague,

It is my greatest pleasure and honor to invite you to the 27th Annual Conference of the German Society for Cytometry, held in Jena – Germany’s city of optics from October 4 – 6, 2017. Registration and abstract submission is now open. We are looking forward to your contribution.

Register / Submit an abstract

Preliminary Program

The 27th Conference is a continuation of the annual meetings devoted to diverse topics in the rapidly expanding field of flow and image cytometry. Our meeting offers the unique opportunity for interdisciplinary scientific exchange and dialogue between scientists, physicians and engineers. Contributions on innovative technologies and cutting edge research in the fields of Nanotechnology, Microbiology, Immunology, Microscopy and other interdisciplinary areas are particularly welcomed.

You can look forward to invited talks by:

Eugen Ermantraut, Blink AG Jena
Prof. Paul Moss, University of Birmingham
Dr. Gunnar Gerdts, Alfred-Wegener-Institute, Helgoland
Dr. Paul Wilmes, University of Luxembourg
Prof. Christian Kost, University of Osnabrück
Prof. Lydia Campos, CHU St. Etienne
Catherine Blanc, UPMC Paris
Ana Teixeira, Karolinska Institute Solna
and more…

The traditional industrial exhibit provides a great opportunity to catch up about the latest products and developments and gives you the chance to facilitate your research by talking to application specialists.

To get more information on all things related to the conference please visit our homepage www.dgfz.org.

With an expected number of more than 150 scientists, students and industry representatives the conference offers excellent networking opportunities on the floor, in the sessions , and at the social events.

Jena is one of the German centers for optics and photonics. Internationally renowned companies such as Carl Zeiss, SCHOTT, Jenoptik and globally acknowledged research institutions are based here, creating individual solutions for demanding clients. Jena is the location for experts, and the knowledge of the city’s specialists is much asked for worldwide

The conference provides a platform for interdisciplinary exchange in basic research, clinical and industrial developments. Aim of the conference is the promotion of methodological and technical innovation in flow cytometry (FCM), image cytometry (ICM) and slide based cytometry (SBC) which furthers understanding of the cell and its integration into multi-cellular systems. The conference facilitates the communication between physicists, chemists, engineers, biologists, biomedical specialists and industry representatives and sparks new impulses for the participants own research. At the same time it is building bridges for the implementation and commercialization of new diagnostic and biomedical approaches.
The yearly meeting of the society is characterised by a friendly and warm atmosphere, which gives upcoming graduate students and post-doc’s the opportunity to present their research in a both stimulating and relaxed surrounding. This is accompanied by interesting lectures at an affordable meeting price, and an almost legendary evening social event.

Students Welcome

Due to the relatively low registration fees the conference especially encourages young researchers, post-docs and students to participate. The young researchers have the possibility to present their work in a friendly yet professional environment in the form of poster contributions and short presentations. With this we want to foster the exchange of ideas and interaction between postgraduates and established researchers. In addition we offer pre-conference tutorials especially but not only for students.

Klaus-Goerttler-Prize

The Prize is dedicated to award a younger scientist for a scientific work out of the wide field of Cytometry which appears outstanding both in scientific quality and innovation as well as presentation and layout. It is expected that submitted documents should reflect a (almost) finished scientific graduation (Diploma, Bachelor, Ph.D. or an equivalent work). The graduation in written form (already printed or in press) and/or scientific papers already published (or in press) will be considered in the reviewing process by the council board of the society.

We are looking forward meeting you in Jena.

Yours sincerely,
Wolfgang Fritzsche – DGfZ President

Analytical Cytometry IX @ Hotel International Prague
Oct 14 – Oct 17 all-day

Dear colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to an official conference of the Czech Society for Analytical Cytology (ČSAC), entitled “Analytical Cytometry IX“, which will be held on October 14 – 17, 2017 in Prague.

You can look forward to new and interesting lectures, which will be delivered by speakers invited from Europe and USA. We will be sharing our research and diagnostic achievements in a friendly atmosphere. We are taking special care to prepare educational modules for our young and interested colleagues to promote the understanding of the technical, methodical and interpretational pitfalls in cytometry for future generations. At the same time we will be offering travel grants to support their participation financially.  Our conference is traditionally interconnected rather technologically, involving technological innovations, basic research, translational and diagnostic procedures. It is multidisciplinary and involves botanists, cell biologists, oncologists, immunologists and hematologists. We believe that interdisciplinarity is our advantage and a source of inspiration. It is really important to us that our cytometry community connects with the international community. Therefore, English will be the official language to enable our invited speakers to join the discussion. An exception will be made for the clinical and basic educational sections which will be held in Czech.

We will endever to deepen our collaboration with cytometry companies, enabling them to introduce their solutions and at the same time promote the contact of our community with application specialists and their knowledge. Therefore, we will continue the biotech mini-workshops, introduced in the past two conferences, where it will be possible to show selected functionalities on installed cytometers.

I am really pleased that I can invite you to our conference in Prague and I believe that the conference will fulfill and exceed expectations raised by the success of the previous conferences in Mikulov and Olomouc.

On behalf of the organizational committee,

Tomáš Kalina
Conference president
