28th Annual Conference of the German Society for Cytometry @ Friedrich-Schiller University Jena
Sep 19 – Sep 21 all-day

After a successful conference last year the Annual Meeting of the German Society will come back to Jena again in 2018. DGfZ president and conference chair Wolfgang Fritzsche is looking forward to host the conference again and hopes to welcome many old and new participants, exhibitors and presenters to Jena. This time the conference will be held in the foyer of the Friedrich Schiller University located in Jenas vibrant city centre and the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technologies will again be the organizer of the event. The scientific program is put together at the moment and the schedule and the website will be updated constantly, so make sure to check back here regularly to get all the latest information.

Life in Focus

The annual conference of the German Society for Cytometry 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 characterized by a friendly and warm atmosphere, which gives upcoming graduate students and postdocs the opportunity to present their research in a both stimulating and relaxed surrounding. This is accompanied by good lectures at an affordable meeting price, and an exciting evening social event.

Students Welcome

By the relatively low registration fees the conference especially encourages young researchers, postdocs 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 oral presentations. With this we want to foster the exchange of ideas and interactions between postgraduates and established researchers. The best poster contribution will be awarded with a poster award which is endowed with 200€ and will be announced during the conference dinner. In addition we offer pre-conference tutorials especially but not only for students.

See you at the conference!

European Cytometry – The many different faces of single-cell research – EMBL conference @ EMBL Heidelberg
Mar 3 @ 10:00 am – Mar 5 @ 5:00 pm

We are happy to announce the upcoming 2,5 day “European Cytometry – The many different faces of single-cell research” conference taking place 3-5 March 2019 at the Advanced Training Center at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany.

Please take a look at our fantastic scientific and technology driver speaker panel. We hope to attract a very heterogeneous attendee mix with young and experienced scientist and technology facilitators to promote and show the lively activity in this field in Europe. If you are interested in participating and/or presenting your exciting research or technology development in the fields of

  • Stem cells and cancer biology
  • Immunology
  • Image cytometry
  • Data analysis
  • Aquatic and plant cytometry

please feel free to register your interest using the link below. The conference will open formal application/registration will soon.

About the conference

The field of cytometry – the study of single cells – is developing rapidly and is applied in almost every scientific discipline from basic to applied research and ultimately the patient bed side. Scientific progress in this very broad field demands quick and thorough communication of novel applications and findings based on improvements in the various technology branches and their use in scientific studies. We want to specifically foster communication across Europe and disciplines by holding a pan-European meeting focusing on science and technology in the field of cytometry, exemplifying the tremendous advances in image cytometry, mass-cytometry, single-cell metabolomics, and classical flow cytometry in combination with high-end sequencing methods. This meeting will attract a broad audience of scientists, technology providers and facilitators from predominately European institutes. It will provide a unique opportunity for junior researchers and technology experts in Europe to interact with the leading figures in this field, especially from the Bio-IT community, highlighting that Europe is a vivid and powerful contributor to cytometry technology development.

40% of all available presentation slots will be given to early stage researchers to promote visibility and to present ongoing research from a different perspective.
