flowcytometryUK 2009

15th-17th July 2009
Keble College, Oxford, UK.

Following the success of the inaugural scientific meeting which was held in Cambridge in 2007 flowcytometryUK holds its second National meeting between 15th and 17th July 2009 at Keble College, Oxford. The conference will highlight advances in flow and image instrumentation, high content screening, cancer and stem cell biology, applications of clinical cytometry and the development of novel probes and approaches in many areas of biomedical research. Confirmed plenary speakers include Ger van den Engh (Seattle, USA), Paul Smith (Cardiff, UK), David Hedley (Ontario, Canada), Bill Telford (NIH, USA), Peter Openshaw (London, UK) and Austin Smith (Cambridge, UK). Delegates from clinical, research and industrial fields are invited to submit both oral and poster abstracts for presentation at the meeting that will attract more than 200 delegates. There will be a large commercial exhibition as well a session devoted to commercial tutorials where delegates can be updated on recent advances in the field.

This meeting should prove an exciting event and an excellent opportunity for all to interact and share work with colleagues in related fields as well as gain awareness of other technologies and methodologies. A conference banquet will be held in Keble College’s Great Hall which will enable delegates to mix informally outside the scientific sessions. Accommodation will be available onsite to all delegates.

We invite abstracts for oral or poster presentation at our second National meeting which will be held at Keble College, Oxford on 15th-17th July 2009. There will be 6 focused sessions which will consist of an invited keynote lecture and then 2-3 submitted abstracts; please indicate which themed session you think is most appropriate for your presentation. The themes will include: Cytometric Technology; Stem Cell Biology; Cancer Biology; New Probes and Applications; Clinical Studies; Microbiology: Plant Sciences; Biotechnology.
All abstracts will be reviewed and assigned to sessions. We do reserve the right to assign talks if balance is required. If you submit an oral presentation abstract, it may be accepted as a poster.

Abstracts should be sent as Word documents electronically to clare@rms.org.uk.
Abstracts should be no longer than 400 words. The title should be less than 255 characters. For each author enter full name and affiliation. The desired font is Times New Roman size 12. Accuracy of the abstract is the responsibility of the author(s). Abstracts should be primarily based on new, unpublished research. Abstracts may be submitted before all analyses and conclusions are made but authors should report at least preliminary results. Vague statement such as “data will be presented’ will result in abstract rejection. Before submission, authors should be confident that they can attend the meeting. You will be notified of receipt electronically and your abstract will be assigned a reference number that will be used in subsequent correspondence. Abstracts will be published electronically by Cytometry Part A.

Deadline for oral submissions is 17th April 2009.
Deadline for poster submissions is 1st June 2009.

Acceptance of an abstract does not guarantee a place at the meeting – please remember to register!
