Dear colleagues, Registration for the 5th International Conference on Analysis of Microbial Cells at the Single Cell Level ( http://singlecell.sciencesconf.org/), November 5th to 8th 2011 in Carry-le-Rouet, in Provence, is now open. I remember you that the Conference is organised on behalf of the "Microbial Physiology" Section of the European Federation of Biotechnology, with the support of the CNRS and the Université de la Méditerranée.
This Conference will focus on the analysis of microorganisms by combining various techniques at the single cell level such as flow cytometry analysis and imaging, very often combined with fluorescent dyes, in order to address their structural and functional compexity. The Conference addresses both natural and artifical microbial communities and covers a wide range of topics organized in 9 sessions :
* New instrumental developments and techniques
Chairman : Prof. J. Paul Robinson (Purdue University Cytometry Laboratories, Lafayette, USA)
Chairman : Dr. Gerhard Nebe-von-Caron (Alere International Cranfield, Bedfordshire, UK)
* Human health
Chairman : Dr. Roy Bongaerts (Institute of Food Research (IFR), Norwich, UK)
* Screening and sorting
Chairman : Dr. Bernhard M. Fuchs (Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, Germany)
* Single cell approaches to cytomics, transcriptomics and proteomics
Chairman : Dr. Susann Müller (Helmholtz-Zentrum für Umweltforschung GmbH — UFZ Department Umweltmikrobiologie AG Flow Cytometry, Leipzig, Germany)
* Cell biology
Chairman : Prof. Dr. Kenji Yasuda (Institute of Biomaterials and Bioengineering Tokyo Medical and Dental University, Tokyo, Japan)
* Multicellular organization
Chairman : Dr. Michel Denis (Université de la Méditerranée, Marseille, France)
* Natural Environment
Chairman : Dr. Raffaella Casotti (Laboratory of Functional and Evolutionary Ecology, Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn, Naples, Italy)
* From data analysis to mathematical modelling
Chairman : Dr H.M. Davey (Institute of Biological Sciences, University of Wales Aberystwyth Ceredigion, Wales)
