The workshop will bring together scientists using Infrared and Raman spectroscopic techniques for the characterization and differentiation of microbial, plant, animal or human cells, tissues, or body fluids to promote exchange of ideas, experiences, and practical problem solutions. Following the lines of our last three workshops in Berlin, major points of discussion will be recent vibrational spectroscopic research and applications in various fields of microbiology.
Topics to be included:
- Medical and environmental microbiology
- Epidemiological studies, maintenance of culture collections, therapy control, investigation of infection chains, hygiene control
- Microbiological analysis in the pharmaceutical, food, water supply industries, and in biotechnology
- Biofilm production
- Heterogeneity of microbial habitats
- Cell/drug interaction, resistance development and testing
- Microspectroscopic characterisation of microbial microcolonies, single cells, inclusion bodies in tissues, small particles in body fluids
- Infrared and Raman microspectroscopic characterisation of healthy and malignant tissues, vibrational spectroscopic imaging
- New trends in spectral data analysis of complex biological structures
The workshop will consist of one and a half days of lectures (15 to 30 minutes). A limited number of poster presentations can be arranged. The working language of the workshop will be English.
Please, do not forget to registrate early! (see registration form)
Abstracts (in English) are required for all presentations.
Deadline for abstract submission:
August 31st, 2002
All abstracts should be sent by E-mail in the format MS Word for Windows.
Please, send abstracts as an attachment from PC (don't use Macintosh!) by any mailer.
Please prepare abstracts in the following form:
|Title of the Lecture and Poster
||Times New Roman, bold, italics, 14 pt centred
|<one line skipped>
|Name of the author(s)
||Times New Roman, 14 pt, centred
|<one line skipped>
||Times New Roman, 12 pt, centred
The name of the author who will present the paper should be underlined. The whole abstract should fit into a 160 x 245 mm, portrait-oriented rectangle (paper format: 210 x 297 mm = DIN A4). The upper and left margins should be set to 25 mm. The text of the abstract should be single spaced and in Times New Roman font, 12 pt.
Abstracts of all lectures and posters will be published in a special edition of the "Information Bulletin" of the "Forum FT-IR Diagnostik" available at the registration desk of the workshop.
