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!
