Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Society for Histochemistry and on behalf of the Organizing Committee we cordially invite you to the 54th Symposium of the Society for Histochemistry which will take place in Vienna from September 5th to September 8th, 2012. The Symposium will be a forum for discussion where experts, young scientists and students working in the field of cell biology, developmental biology, experimental pathology and those involved in the development of high end technologies and methodologies are encouraged to exchange their knowledge.

The topic of the conference is “Imaging development – tracking cells in order and disorder”. Focus will be laid on regular and aberrant differentiation of cells, tissues and developing organisms as well as on the methods of making these processes visible.

The scientific programme will comprise invited talks, oral presentations and posters as well as workshops by companies presenting the latest technical developments of their products.

The conference will start with the Robert Feulgen Lecture in the evening of Sept. 5th. We are pleased to announce that this lecture will be held by Marianne Bronner, a leading scientist in the field of developmental biology.

Conference venue will be the Campus of the University of Vienna, the Poster session and industry exhibition will take place next to the lecture hall. The spacious courtyards in between the University buildings will provide a pleasant surrounding for the exchange of knowledge after the workshops.

The city centre of Vienna with its historical buildings, museums and exhibitions is within walking distance of the conference site.

We are expecting an interesting and highly motivating meeting and would be happy if you participated in this symposium.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!
