Sylvia and Michael,
Thanks for the feedback and for a good
meeting - I enjoyed it a lot.
The social element of the meeting is
special so this should only be emphasize
in my opinion.
The poster session was fine, although the
ones facing the wall left a very small
corridor to traverse - maybe this setup
could be improved.
On the topics it's obvious NGS is taking
more and more attention - also here. I
guess this is inevitable.
Finally - it was an excellent party to
shake up things.

|Hello Michael and
I want to sincerely thank you for
organizing and running my favorite
meeting of the year! I appreciate all of
your attention to details and ensuring
all the sessions operate flawlessly. I
had so many intellectually stimulation
discussions and am following up on
several new collaborations made possible
by your conference.
Thank you so much!

event again fulfilled our expectations.
As gold sponsors at the event, focused
on the latest trends in molecular
biology and software development, we
were able to present our scientific
research and products, and concluded
several successful meetings with the
leading decision makers in the industry.
We would recommend qPCR & NGS Event
to everyone who is interested in
relevant scientific content and meeting
the key opinion leaders from the qPCR
and NGS industry.

Here are some comments from my side:
- This was my first time as this
conference and I really enjoyed the open
and informal setting, the ease to move
about and connect, even when you don’t
know anybody yet and the relaxed
- The conference size (number of
people and number of sessions + number
of talks) was perfect.
- I also liked that there were two
parallel sessions that were different,
so you could choose which best suits
- I liked that there were many
companies present with stands to visit
to get more information on the latest
- The poster session reception with
buffet snacks and drinks on Monday
evening was great!
- The fact that the symposium can
be combined with a workshop of choice at
the same location was superb.
- Great that all talks will be made
available to all conference visitors.
- I also really enjoyed reading the
BDQ edition that was handed out.
- I learned a lot!!!
knew this beforehand, but still missed a
lot the application possibilities in
prokaryotes as the focus of the
symposium is very much on human/mouse
applications and RNA expression.
website is very unclear and
conference is quite expensive. There
were foods and drinks provided all the
time – this was very luxurious and I
enjoyed it, but may not be necessary and
could save costs?

Mrs. and Mr. Pfaffl,
I would also like to thank you from my side
for organizing such a great event (which I
unfortunately only now realized existed)! It
is a highly productive mix of exquisite and
informative up-to-date scientific talks, a
manageable amount of industrial partners
offering a wide range of interesting
products and, of course, one-of-a-kind
social events! I very much enjoyed myself
scientifically and personally 😊
If there is a link to a survey form, please
send it to me. I’d be happy to fill it in.
I arrived home safely thanks. Many thanks
for another great meeting - lots of fun as
The posters you list are the correct ones.
There used to be a bigger infectious
diseases / microbiology component to the
conference. Cancer, exosomes, eukaryotic
microRNA profiling etc seems to have taken
over. It might be good to run a
microbiology and infectious diseases
applications session next time.
Jim and I would be happy to chair!
Many thanks again.

Dear Michael, Sylvia and Martina
Thanks for your email. And a
HUGE thanks for putting on such a
fantastic event. We found the event
to be exceptionally well organised.
The qualityof all of the hospitality and
entertainment was exceptional. All
of the bioMCC team were enormously
friendly and helpful too.As always the
scientific content of the event was
varied. Some good, some not so good,
but this is not under your control!
However there was a lot ofexcellent
science presented and some real
highlights...not least Kary

As a recommendation, I would suggest that

Thank you very much for your wonderful
organization. Everything was great. I really
enjoyed the meeting, the workshops, and my
stay in Freising.
When I came back to my university, I
mentioned a lot about your organization to
my colleagues. Although everyone thinks the
payment is very much for a student, as for
me it was worth.
Freising is a very beautiful and peaceful
city so do the campus. As a student I really
get jealous the students of TUM. I would
like to do my PhD at such a university.
It was a full scientific and social
enthusiasm week for me, thank you for
organizing this type of successful occasions
I look forward the coming qPCR Events (may
be qPCR 2012).

|Dear Michael and Sylvia,
for the opportunity to participate in your
fantastic meeting. You are wonderful
and gracious hosts and I appreciate all
the work you and your team did to provide
the meeting as well as the extra
of the meeting for me were: 1.
Learning about the new developments in the
emerging areas of single cell analysis and
digital qPCR. 2. I enjoyed the next
gen sequencing presentations, especially
the non-commercial presentations.
3. The meeting layout and program
promoted networking and sharing ideas with
others. 4. The support staff was
outstanding and did a great job at both
the meeting and non-meeting events.
Con I have is the high level of commercial
presentations that were part of the
program. Some vendors did try to
give a more scientific style of
presentation. But there were a few that
gave more of a sales pitch than
science. Perhaps it could be
encouraged that if a vendor wants to
present at the meeting that they ask a
non-company scientist who has been using
their product to speak.

some updates, prospects, problems...,
followed by shorter talks (without the
