On behalf of the Czech Society for Analytical Cytometry, I would like to invite you to the conference "Analytical Cytometry XI" which is to be held on October 2–5, 2021 in Clarion Congress Hotel Ostrava, Czech Republic

Despite the current unfavorable epidemiological situation, we all firmly believe that in October 2021 we will be able to meet in person and to have, as in the previous years, a good time in a friendly and professional manner again.

We are preparing an interesting scientific program tailored to cytometrists from basic research and the clinical environment, from physicists to molecular biologists to workers from diagnostic laboratories. The program will include a series of invited lectures by top international experts as well as parallel sections devoted to cell and tumor biology, cell therapies and hematology, immunology, including reproduction, sorting for single-cell RNA sequencing, microfluidics, and data analysis. The educational modules will continue to focus on the basics of cytometry, cell biology, and clinical applications, and a new sorting module will be prepared. We believe that the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary program will be an inspiration for your future projects. 

As a part of the cooperation with the non-academic sector, we will continue in the established format of industry mini-workshops with the opportunity to discuss your topics and practice cytometric applications directly with the application specialists. We will again financially support the participation of young colleagues in the conference through the travel grants.

We are continuously trying to connect our cytometric community with the international community. Again, the conference language will be English, so that our invited guests and foreign members of our teams can participate in the discussions. Due to the location of the conference, we can also expect participants from Poland. We will make an exception only for clinical and basic educational sections, which will be held in Czech.

I am very pleased to invite you to the eleventh edition of our conference. I believe that we will have the opportunity for a face-to-face meeting and that the conference will meet your expectations and will build on the successes of its previous editions.

Veronika Kanderová
Chair of the conference organizing committee
