Call for Papers - qPCR 2009 Event

4th international qPCR Symposium  &  Industrial Exhibition  &
Application Workshop
9 - 13th March 2009,  in  Freising-Weihenstephan, Technical University
of Munich,  Weihenstephan, Germany


Dear colleagues,
dear researchers,
dear company representatives,

On behalf of the Organisation Committee and the Scientific Board it is
a great pleasure to invite you to the 4th International qPCR Symposium
& Industrial Exhibition & Application Workshop  to be held at the
Center of Life Science in Freising Weihenstephan, Technische
Universit=E4t M=FCnchen (Germany). The great international interest in the
previous meetings qPCR 2004 qPCR 2005 and qPCR 2007 ] with up to 600
participants coming from over 40 countries, and 30 international
companies in the qPCR Industrial Exhibition led us to the decision to
repeat the Symposium in spring 2009.

We have set the date for the qPCR 2009 Event  to 9 - 13th March 2009.
The event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer
at TUM (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan,
Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich is part of the
largest Biotech cluster in Europe, located close to the Munich airport
in the heart of Bavaria.

Leading academic researchers and industrial contributors in the field
will be participate in the symposium, which will be an arena for
fruitful discussions between researchers of different backgrounds. The
Symposium Talks, various Poster Sessions, Industrial Exhibition and
associated qPCR Application Workshops offer an overview of the present
knowledge and future developments in qPCR technology and its wide

The symposium will focus on approximately 40-50 lectures presented by
internationally recognised experts in their field. The emphasis will
be on unbiased, didactic information exchange.  Internationally renown
speakers will be participating in a lively and exciting programme
enabling the valuable exchange of information in the qPCR field. One
third of the talks will be presented by selected invited speakers, one
third will be selected from the submitted abstracts and one third will
be presented by qPCR company R&D representatives. All scientific
contributions will be published in the qPCR 2009 Symposium

It is a pleasure to announce the Nobel Prize Laureate Kary Mullis in
an own session =9325th Anniversary of PCR=94
