The program will differ slightly from that of the previous meetings in that it contains four clearly distinct, focused sessions:

· Session A covers different applications of ELISPOT that are unique to the technique - each are of general interest because they can be applied to all fields of study in which ELISPOT is used. This session aims to be the scientific highlight. Each talks will be brief (15 minutes each) - to cover quite some terrain.

· Session B is dedicated to ELISPOT standardization, harmonization and validation. There are three major multicenter programs ongoing and here we will get briefings on the progress each has made.

· Sessions C and D are assigned to the ELISPOT reagent and instrument manufacturers so they can share new developments front. Each manufacturer will have only 10 minutes to present.

· Session E is dedicated to questions and answer. Participants will be asked to submit questions before the meeting and also to ask questions ad hoc – these questions will be discussed.
