On behalf of the European Society for Clinical Cell Analysis (ESCCA) and the Sociedad Ibérica de Citometría (SIC), we cordially invite you to participate in the 6th European Course on Clinical Cytometry and the 10th Euroconference on Clinical Cell Analysis joint meeting, to be held in Valencia, Spain, on 21-25 September 2010. As with the preceeding editions, both annual events are recognised among the most relevant educational meetings for professionals dedicated to the various aspects of clinical cell analysis. Participants will experience a number of first class lectures, defined by the scientific board under supervision of the ESCCA and the SIC. Thus, the joint meeting will provide a unique opportunity to establish direct international links between scientists and professionals involved in clinical cell analysis.

On 21 and 22 September 2010, the European Society for Clinical Cell Analysis (ESCCA) will organize the sixth edition of its highly successful annual courses in clinical cytometry aimed for medical doctors, PhDs, pharma biologists (and engineers), laboratory managers and technical laboratory staff related to clinically applied flow cytometry.

The following courses will be scheduled:

  1. Leukemia (advanced level)
  2. Immunodeficiency
  3. Integrated cytomics
  4. Circulating tumor cells
  5. Functional cytometry

The conference will provide updates on the core fields of clinical cell analysis such as lymphocyte taxonomy, leukemia/lymphoma immunophenotyping, detection of minimal residual disease, myelodysplasia, ageing and cancer, as well as novel technologies in clinical cell analysis. English-language parallel sessions will cover more specialized topics such as immunophenotyping of cerebrospinal fluid, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, dendritic cells and exceptional T-cell subsets.

Four Spanish-language parallel sessions will address stem cells, translational cytometry, rare cells and polychromatic cytometry. Dr. Maria Jorge Arroz has kindly accepted to present the keynote lecture. More information to follow soon.

Posters will be on display during the conference. Some posters will be selected for a short oral communication in one of the plenary sessions.

Conference Topics:

  1. Recent advances in clinical cytometry
  2. Novel strategies for data analysis
  3. Rare cells in hematopoiesis
  4. Mast cells
  5. (Natural) killer lymphocytes
  6. Immunosenescence
  7. Monoclonal B-cell lymphocytosis
  8. Laboratory accreditation
