Quantitative Imaging Cytometry Symposium at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

The Inaugural Quantitative Imaging Cytometry Symposium at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is taking place at the Laboratory's Cold Spring Harbor, New York campus from January 30 to February 1, 2008.  The meeting combines the theory and practice of QIC, with morning seminars featuring research presentations and afternoons offering opportunities for developing expertise in quantitative imaging cytometry techniques in cell- and tissue-based applications.
The afternoon hands-on sessions are almost sold out-only a few seats remain.  As an alternative, if you are in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area, you should consider coming to one or several of the morning seminar sessions.  These sessions are free of charge, but registration is nevertheless required.	If you wish to combine the morning seminar with lunch and the accompanying networking session, there is a nominal $50 fee per day.
