My apologies if this post ends up coming through more than once, having
some email issues on my end!!

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 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, 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!
