The DGfZ 2014 will take place at the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD ) in Dresden from October 15th – 17th 2014 and we are happy to welcome you again.

More than 20 exhibitors and 200 participants is the result of last years DGfZ meeting at the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (CRTD ) .” Cytometry Across Disciplines ” was the topic, which has attracted considerable interest. The positive response from exhibitors , guest speakers and participants from over 10 countries, is a confirmation for the organizers , Prof. Dr. Leoni Kunz- Schughart (National Centre for Radiation Research in Oncology – OncoRay , Chairman of the Company) and Dr. Denis Corbeil ( biotechnology Center Dresden – Biotec) that the intensive preparation of the Congress has been worthwhile. Prof. Dr. Kunz- Schughart : ” The interdisciplinary scientific program with numerous high-profile international experts and pleasing environment were key to the success of the event”.

Last years conference succeeded in building a bridge between multiple cytometric and cell analytical methodologies. It was an excellent opportunity to discuss new technological developments in the context of the many challlenges in biomedical research, that have to be addressed. A special highlight was the presentation by Prof. Dr. David Harris , Arizona , United States , founder of the world’s first cord blood bank on the topic ” The Future of Cord Blood Stem Cell Banking: Regenerative Medicine & Cellular Therapies ” .

Without the proactive participation of all working group members and the support of sponsors and funding agencies in the event of this high quality would not have been possible. For this we are particularly grateful to the organizers . ” At this point in particular, the German Research Foundation ( DFG) and the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry ( ISAC ) should be mentioned.

Dear Participants of the Annual Conference of the German Society for Cytometry,

The talks have ended, the trade show is packed and the conference site is cleaned up and empty again. The thank you notes are on their way and the expenses have been totalled and will be paid (well, soon). More than 170 people gave their time and resources to attend and contribute. They made this year’s Annual Conference of the German Society for Cytometry the success, that it was. We are all just back to our daily routines, so what is left ?

We hope you found some new ideas for your daily work and made some new friends, you can discuss these ideas with. For us it is time to say goodbye and hand over the organisation of next years conference to Leoni Kunz-Schughart, as the new president of the German Society.

We will keep the talks and abstracts in our archive on our web page, so you still can look back on what you heard and keep in contact with each other.

As organisers of the last conferences we were happy to see that we could keep the spirit of the preceding conferences. We loved to see the people enjoying the ample time for discussion and contributing to the unique mix of exhibition, conference, networking and information platform. In this context we would like to say a special thank you to all exhibitors, our helping hands of the Caesar research building and the Museum König. All of them did a fantastic job and without them our conference would not have been possible !

Thanks to all of you for making it happen.

Best regards, see you and hello to Dresden next year

Yours, Elmar Endl and Frank Schildberg
