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.
