First Scheveningen Meeting on Molecular diagnostics 13-16 october 1999
This is the first of a series of meetings devoted to all aspects of
molecular diagnostics in infectious disease and pathology of humans and
animals, which will be organised every two years. These meetings are a
continuation of the Benelux and European meetings on Diagnostic PCR.
the scope of the meetings has now expanded to include other amplification
techniques and probe technology.
The emphasis of the meetings will continue to be the practical aspects and
the clinical applications. The format of the meetings will also be
maintained: general, introductory lectures by internationally renowned
experts in the morning and free presentations in dedicated workshops in the
afternoon. Poster sessions and industrial exhibits will be an integrated
part of the meeting. In conjunction with the meeting a number of business
meetings of the participating societies will be organised. The sponsoring
companies are expected to organise some specific training and other
activities before and after the meetings.
The scientific part of meetings is organised by an independent international
organising committee in conjunction with the European Study Group on
Molecular Diagnostics and the Society of Clinical Virology. The practical
aspects of the meeting are handled by Wens Travel. All parties involved
invite you to become part of a tradition.
