Thank you for coming to the DGfZ 2012 in Bonn, see you again in Dresden 2013

Dear Participants of the Annual Conference of the German Society for Cytometry,

The talks have ended, the trade show is packed and the conference site is cleaned up and empty again. The thank you notes are on their way and the expenses have been totalled and will be paid (well, soon). More than 170 people gave their time and resources to attend and contribute. They made this year’s Annual Conference of the German Society for Cytometry the success, that it was. We are all just back to our daily routines, so what is left ?

We hope you found some new ideas for your daily work and made some new friends, you can discuss these ideas with. For us it is time to say goodbye and hand over the organisation of next years conference to Leoni Kunz-Schughart, as the new president of the German Society.

We will keep the talks and abstracts in our archive on our web page, so you still can look back on what you heard and keep in contact with each other.

As organisers of the last conferences we were happy to see that we could keep the spirit of the preceding conferences. We loved to see the people enjoying the ample time for discussion and contributing to the unique mix of exhibition, conference, networking and information platform. In this context we would like to say a special thank you to all exhibitors, our helping hands of the Caesar research building and the Museum König. All of them did a fantastic job and without them our conference would not have been possible !

Thanks to all of you for making it happen.

Best regards, see you and hello to Dresden next year

Yours, Elmar Endl and Frank Schildberg
