qPCR & NGS 2015
First event announcement

qPCR & NGS 2015 Event
"Advanced Molecular Diagnostics for Biomarker Discovery"
7th international qPCR & NGS Event -- Symposium  &  Industrial Exhibition  &  Application Workshops
23-27 March 2015, in Freising-Weihenstephan, Technical University of Munich, Weihenstephan, Germany
www.qPCR-NGS-2015.net

The great international interest in the previous qPCR & NGS Events from 2004 till 2013 with a constant audience of more than 500 participants from all over the world motivates repeating the success next year in March 2015. We broaden our focus in genomics applications from quantitative RT-PCR, over digital PCR to the latest Next Generation Sequencing technologies. The date for the 7th International qPCR Symposium & Exhibition & Application Workshops is from the 23rd to the 27th March 2015. Parallel to the scientific symposium an industrial exhibition will take place where around 35-40 international companies will be presenting their newest qPCR, dPCR and NGS services and technologies. The symposium will be followed by various qPCR & NGS Workshops taking place March 26th and 27th powered by TATAA Biocenter, Bio-Rad, Genomatix and other leaders in the field.
Event location is the central lecture hall complex and the foyer at TUM (Technical University of Munich) in Freising Weihenstephan, Germany. The TUM and the Biotech region around Munich are part of the largest Biotech cluster in Europe, located close to the Munich airport (MUC) directly in the heart of Bavaria.

The focus of the qPCR & NGS 2015 Event is "Advanced Molecular Diagnostics for Biomarker Discovery"

The symposium is based on around 60-70 lectures and 100 posters presented by international recognised experts in their application fields. The emphasis will be on unbiased, didactic and scientific 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 given to qPCR and NGS company R&D representatives. Various poster sessions will be held in parallel in a separate poster exhibition hall. All scientific contributions will be published in an abstract book (qPCR & NGS 2015 Proceedings incl. ISBN). All talks will be recorded and made public in autumn 2015 via the www.eConferences.de streaming platform together with around 200 talks from qPCR 2010 onwards.

Leading academic researchers and industrial contributors in the field will participate in the symposium, which will be an arena for fruitful discussions between researchers of different backgrounds. The Symposium Talks, Poster Sessions, Industrial Exhibition and associated qPCR & NGS Application Workshops offer an overview of the present knowledge and future developments in qPCR, next generation sequencing and gene expression measurement technology and its wide applications in research.

As usual the qPCR Event is structured in three parts: 

  1. Symposium & Poster Sessions, taking place March 23 - 25   Talks.qPCR-NGS-2015.net
  2. Industrial Exhibition with around 40 companies, taking place March 23 - 25   Exhibition.qPCR-NGS-2015.net
  3. qPCR & NGS Application Workshops, taking place March 26 - 27    Workshops.qPCR-NGS-2015.net

BDQ Awards
at
qPCR & NGS 2015 Event

Description of   "BDQ Young Scientist Poster Awards"
BDQ-awards.qPCR-NGS-2015.net

The new open access journal Biomolecular Detection and Quantification (BDQ) is proud to sponsor three  "BDQ Young Scientist Poster Awards"  at the qPCR & NGS 2015 event.

The posters will be evaluated by an international jury on the basis of originality of the approach; quality of the work (e.g. appropriate methodology, interpretation of results, conclusiveness); quality of the presentation (e.g. clarity, response to questions); and self-reliance and independence (not one of co-authors, but the most active, if more than one author).

Eligible for the BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award:
The contest is open to students and early career scientists.

Award Presentation
BDQ Editor-in-Chief Stephen Bustin will award the three poster prizes on Wednesday afternoon directly after the lunch break March 25, 2015.

  1. BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award - First Prize
    The winner is awarded 700 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
  2. BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award – Second Prize
    The winner is awarded 200 Euros and a free submission to BDQ
  3. BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award – Third Prize
    The winner is awarded 100 Euros and a free submission to BDQ

Procedure for Application
Authors will be able to express their interest in participating in the BDQ Young Scientist Poster Award contest when submitting their abstract. Note that authors are only able to participate if their paper has been selected as a poster by the conference organizer.
Please register and submit your abstract using the Internet based ConfTool registration and submission platform => Registration.qPCR-NGS-2015.net
