Held with the endorsement of
Jeffrey H. Price, Scintillon Institute

Chair Emeritus and Program Adviser:

Accompanying for the Second Time (October 21-22)
the Cytometry Development Tutorials and Cells, Sensors, and Systems Symposium
The 25th "Cytometry Development Workshop: Technologies for Cell Analysis" will be held from October 22nd to October 25th, 2015 at the beautiful La Jolla Shores Hotel in sunny San Diego.
The purpose of this workshop series is to bring together those people directly involved in the development of the technologies for cell analysis, including both flow cytometry and image cytometry. A number of important developments in cytometry had their origins at the Workshop, including development of digital pulse processing approaches for flow cytometers, initial discussions of designs for low cost cytometers for AIDS monitoring in developing countries, development of "Q & B" analysis of fluorescence sensitivity in flow, and development of standardization materials and protocols for cytometry. In recent years, a major focus has been on high-throughput systems and proteomics.
The workshop will not be a forum for discussion of applications per se, but applications are frequently discussed as they relate to the development of new technologies. Every attendee is required to participate actively and make a positive contribution by discussing their current research, experiences, and needs. This is not a forum for observers. However, the organizers ensure that no one dominates discussion.
The program for the workshop is entirely determined by the interests of the attendees (see links for past workshops for typical sets of discussion topics). Each attendee must volunteer to present at least one topic (hopefully more than one). The presentations do not need to be about completed work - presentations on work in progress or problems being encountered in a project are very welcome. Each presenter may hold the floor for no more than 10 minutes. However, there is no limit on the number of topics that each attendee may present. The purpose of the 10 minute rule is to guarantee that everyone has an opportunity to make their presentations. Attendees may also volunteer to present a 15 minute tutorial on one or more subjects that they feel would be of general interest.
A lot of background material is not needed. All attendees of this Workshop will be experienced in the field; please limit the use of published data (other than in tutorials). Our intention is that this workshop will be a forum for helping one another; to discuss recent developments that make research at your laboratory/company easier and more productive and that might help others. For your presentations we will provide overhead projectors and computer projection.
There will be no sound or film recording of any presentation.
The workshop will begin at 6:30pm on Thursday, October 22nd (rooms are available at 3:00 PM) and the workshop will conclude after breakfast on Sunday, October 25th. Afternoons are usually unscheduled to allow participants free time to enjoy the area and for individual discussions.
