Dear colleagues,
dear researchers,
dear company representatives,
on behalf of the Organisation Committee and the Scientific Board it is great pleasure to invite you to the 2nd International qPCR Symposium & Application Workshop to be held September 5-9, 2005, at the Center of Life Science in Freising Weihenstephan, Technische Universität München (Germany). The great international interest in the 1st International qPCR Symposium & Application Workshop by 465 participants from 44 countries and 32 international companies in the qPCR Industrial Exhibition led us to the decision to repeat it in 2005. The event will focus on all aspects of qPCR technology and its applications in research and diagnostics. Leading academic researchers and industrial contributors in the field will be participate in the symposium, which will be an arena for fruitful discussions between researchers of different backgrounds. The Symposium, the Industrial Exhibition and associated Application Workshops offer an overview of the present knowledge and future developments in qPCR technology and its wide applications. The subtitle of the qPCR 2005 events will be:

The whole story of quantitative PCR – from Tissue Preparation to BioInformatics

The event is divided in
1. qPCR Symposium from 5 – 7th September,
2. qPCR Industrial Exhibition from 5 – 7th September
3. qPCR Workshop from 7 – 9th September ( classical qPCR Workshop and a new type of Matrix Workshop )

The location is the central lecture hall and the foyer at TUM (Technical University Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan. We are part of the biggest Biotech Cluster in Germany and Europe, located close to the Munich airport, and in the heart of Bavaria.
