Asia’s Premier Cytometry Conference and Workshop
The International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC), The Australasian Cytometry Society (ACS) and the Singaporean Society for Immunology (SgSI) recently announced they have agreed to co-host CYTO Asia 2017: A Joint Meeting of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC), The Australasian Cytometry Society (ACS), and the Singaporean Society for Immunology (SgSI) in Singapore from October 24 to 27, 2017, in the Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel. The aim of this conference is to engage the cytometry communities of all three societies, offer increased breadth and scope of scientific presentations at CYTO Asia 2017 and increase scientific collaboration in Asia and around the world.
CYTO Asia will be the second scientific meeting in 2017 for ISAC. CYTO Boston 2017 is the 32nd Congress of ISAC and will be June 10 – 14 at the Hynes Convention Center. CYTO Asia will be the 2017 annual meeting of the ACS, and it’s the first time the ACS meeting will be held outside of Australia and New Zealand.
CYTO Asia 2017 will be the first major Cytometry meeting in Southeast Asia. Held from October 25-27 at the Grand Copthorne Hotel in Singapore, this conference will serve as a showcase of new cytometry-related technologies and applications for scientists and clinicians using flow cytometry in Asia and Australasia. CYTO Asia 2017 will be an ideal meeting for professionals who are using flow cytometry to present their latest work, and provides a unique opportunity to network with their regional peers.
As a three-day scientific conference covering both clinical and research based cytometry, it will feature plenary, parallel and poster sessions preceeded by a three-day flow cytometry workshop on October 22-24, 2017. The plenary sessions will include invited speakers presenting the latest advances and techniques, while parallel and poster sessions will be chosen from abstract submissions.
CYTO Asia’s confirmed keynote speaker, Professor Irene Ng Oi-Lin of the University of Hong Kong, has published more than 300 peer-reviewed journal articles and has received numerous awards, including The World Academy of Science 2014 Prize for Medical Science. She will be featured among an impressive list of guest speakers that includes some of the most distinguished international thought leaders in the field.
The 6th ASEAN Flow Cytometry Workshop will consist of lectures and laboratory-based modules on specific research and clinical topics. These will be presented by renowned scientists and clinicians in the field of flow cytometry.
Additionally, travel fellowships will be available to help cover costs for scientists and students from ASEAN countries who want to attend the meeting.
