Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Czech Society for Analytical Cytometry, I would like to invite you to the conference "Analytical Cytometry XI" to be held from October 2–5, 2021 at the Clarion Congress Hotel in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Although the current epidemiological situation is unfavorable, we all firmly believe that in October 2021 we will be able to meet in person and, as in previous years, have a good time in a friendly and professional manner.

We are preparing an interesting professional program tailored to cytometrists from the area of basic research and from the clinical setting, ranging from physicists to molecular biologists to professionals working in diagnostic laboratories. The program will include a series of guest lectures by top foreign experts as well as parallel sections devoted to cell and tumor biology, cell therapies and hematology, immunology including reproductive immunology, 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. A sorting module will be prepared, which is a new feature for the 2021 conference. We believe that the interdisciplinary and multifaceted program will provide inspiration for your future projects. As part of our cooperation with the non-academic sector, we will continue with the successfully established format of corporate mini-workshops, with the opportunity for you to discuss your topic and practice cytometric applications directly with application specialists. We will again financially support the participation of young colleagues in the conference through travel grants.

We are always trying to involve our cytometry community in the international community. To this end, the 2021 conference language is once again English, so that our invited guests and the foreign members of our teams can participate in discussions. Due to the location of the conference, we can expect participants from Poland. We will make a language exception solely for clinical and basic educational sections, which will be in Czech.

I am very pleased to invite you to our eleventh annual conference. I believe that we will have the opportunity to meet in person, and that the conference will meet your expectations and build on the successes of previous years.

Dear Colleagues,

Are you interested in how the unfavorable epidemiological situation will affect our conference?
Committee of the Czech Society for Analytical Cytometry decided to hold the conference scheduled from October 2 to 5, 2021, at the Clarion Congress Hotel in Ostrava, Czech Republic, including the program, registration, abstract submission, travel grants, and accommodation as planned on the conference website.
In case of pandemic complications, e.g., another wave of the pandemic and a ban on larger events with more than 100 people participating, we will postpone our conference by a year.
We will not hold a purely online conference, because we are convinced that a meeting with the possibility of personal communication is more pleasant for most participants and can bring significant benefits compared to the online form.

We look forward to a personal meeting!

Chair of the conference organizing committee
