As the Corona virus continues to firmly hold us in its grip, ESCCA is pleased to announce an extension of the early registration fees for all participant categories until 15 April 23:59:59 CET!
We hope that this gesture will enable more participants around the world to join us on the virtual platform in April. Regardless of time zone, you won’t miss anything! All 48 lectures, 24 Best Abstract Presentations and 19 Oral Poster Presentations will remain on demand for 6 months after the Conference!
This year, a term election will take place to renew two positions in the ESCCA executive Board (3-year mandate) and two ESCCA Financial Advisors (2-year mandate). All active ESCCA Members complying with the 2021 membership fee can propose their candidacy for these positions.
Board members have the duty to support ESCCA management on behalf of the association members, to work for a correct application of the Statutes (available on the website) and to promote ESCCA membership and activities. The main objective of ESCCA is promoting flow cytometry, its good practice as well as networks among cytometrists, by organising Euroconferences, International Schools of cytometry and by supporting education in European incoming Countries. As a new Board member, you can bring new energy and new ideas for ESCCA development.
ESCCA Auditors have the duty to double check the financial reports prepared by the Treasurer and the financial bureau. As a new ESCCA Auditor, you will independently guarantee the ESCCA finances on behalf of all members.
In order to present her/his candidacy, a member must produce letters of support by two active ESCCA members, a very concise professional profile, a few statements indicating how the candidate will support ESCCA’s activities if elected (maximum one half page) and a small photo in jpg format.
Candidacies should be sent by e-mail to the ESCCA Secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 15 February 2021 in order to present the candidates to the members in time before the online voting starts.
Due to the unpredictability of the COVID-19 pandemic and with your safety and health in mind, the ESCCA Board has decided to move to a fully VIRTUAL ESCCA Conference next year.
Dates: 22-24 April 2021.
While a virtual format can never fully replace the benefits of a face-to-face meeting, we will make sure to offer you an interesting programme and excellent opportunities for you to present your abstract and interact with your colleagues.
Abstract submission is open until 15 February! The updated programme programme and other important information will be made available as soon as possible. Do check the conference website for regular updates!
During the Covid-19 outbreak many meetings have either been cancelled or postponed and the need for educational content is greater than ever. Also the ESCCA Conference in Vilnius, initially scheduled in September 2020, had to be postponed to April 2021.
Therefore, ESCCA has made some of the educational presentations of the 2019 Conference in Bergen publicly available. These can be downloaded in the Education section/ESCCA publications.
CCEN offers a link to some of the Educational Resources made available for free access by ICCS.
Access via https://www.cytoed.org//web/index.php under the E-learning tab and "what's new".
