Scientific Organisers: Derek Davies & Rachael Walker
This event will consist both Plenary and parallel sessions from invited speakers and selected talks, alongside several Commercial workshops, a large exhibition and the opportunity to network with flow and image cytometrists from all over Europe and beyond. 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.
We are now inviting abstracts for oral or poster presentation at the meeting. Sessions will be themed according to abstracts received. All abstracts will be reviewed and assigned to a session. Please note: if you submit an oral presentation abstract, it may be accepted as a poster.
- Abstracts should be sent as Word documents electronically to Karina Lang at the RMS office.
- 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- Abstracts should be primarily based on new, unpublished research.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 statements such as “data will be presented’ will result in abstract rejection.
- Please indicate whether you wish your abstract to be considered for an oral or poster presentation.
Successful presenting authors will be eligible to apply for travel and registration bursaries from flowcytometryUK. Details of these are available on the flowcytometryUK website and will be mailed to our members.
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.
Deadline for abstract submission: 27th April 2018
Acceptance of an abstract does not guarantee a place at the meeting – please remember to register!
