The qPCR 2009 symposium focus will be on some 40-50 lectures presented by international recognised experts in their application fields. The emphasis will be on unbiased, didactic information exchange. One third of the talks will be presented by invited speakers, one third of the speakers will be selected from the submitted abstracts and one third will be qPCR company representatives.
Various poster sessions will be presented in parallel in separate poster exhibition halls. All scientific contributions will be published in the qPCR 2009 Symposium Proceedings. In the last meetings between 150 and 220 scientific contributions were summarized and published in the Symposium Proceedings (ISBN 3000134042 and ISBN 3000166874). Deadline for abstract submission is the 31st December 2008.

An online registration tool – CONFTOOL - is available in autumn 2008.
