A reminder that registration is still open for the Second Annual Southeast Flow Cytometry Interest Group (SEFCIG) meeting on Friday, June 24 in Athens, Georgia (http://www.georgiacenter.uga.edu). We have another really great program scheduled this year. In addition to the full-day meeting, the preceding day will have a core manager’s workshop, a welcome reception with open bar and a special talk by Sony. We have purposefully selected the date of the meeting as it coincides with the awesome annual music and arts festival in Athens, which is called AthFest (www.athfest.com). A limited number of discounted conference center hotel rooms have been reserved in consideration of the meeting - hotel rooms are normally quite difficult to obtain during AthFest.
To register or to view a full schedule of the program, go to

Below, please find an abbreviated schedule for both the Core Manager's Workshop and the full day meeting.  There will be informative sponsor talks in the middle of the full day meeting as well.  If you are in the Southeast and shopping around for a new instrument, software or reagents (and can't make it to Baltimore)- this is your chance to see them all in one place.  We would like to thank ISAC and our many sponsors for their support of this meeting.

Hope to see all of you there!
