The Fourteenth Cytometry Development Workshop ("Technologies for Cell
Analysis") will take place October 15-18, 2004 at the beautiful Asilomar
Conference Center in Pacific Grove, California. The workshop is held with
the endorsement of the International Society for Analytical Cytology (ISAC)
and is the leading forum for focused discussion of cytomics and cytometric
technology, including flow cytometry and automated microscopy. The
workshop begins at 4:30 PM on Wednesday October 15 and ends at 9 PM on
Saturday October 18. Further details and a registration form are available
from the web site at http://murphylab.web.cmu.edu/CDW/. Howard Shapiro
(hms at shapirolab.com) and Bob Murphy (murphy at cmu.edu) will again be serving
as organizers and moderators.
The meeting is an opportunity for those who have a significant interest in
developing and applying cell analysis technologies to learn from each other
and push the state of the art. It is therefore not a meeting for those
interested in learning for the first time about cytometry. Scientists from
academic, government, and industrial labs are welcome and we particularly
encourage bringing or sending mid- to end-stage graduate students working
on relevant projects. Students awards are available to cover the costs of
housing and food.
The Workshop attendees set the agenda by the topics that they choose to
present (see the web site), and we run at the pleasant slow pace of the
Automated Cytology Conferences of the 1970's, which preceded and catalyzed
the formation of what is now ISAC.
If you are interested in attending, please register (both with the
Conference Center and with the organizers) using the forms on the web site.
