Dear Listers,

I would like to bring to your attention the Abercrombie meeting that will be taking place September 11-14 in Oxford.

The meeting focuses on the cytoskeleton, adhesion, and cell migration.

The deadline for abstract submission is 11th of August.

More details can be found below.

Best wishes



Abercrombie Meeting 2017

11-14 September 2017

St Catherine’s College, University of Oxford


The series of Abercrombie meetings have been held since the death of Michael Abercrombie in 1979. Michael was a pioneer in the field of investigating cell behaviour using timelapse microscopy. Abercrombie meetings are held once every five years and therefore offer an excellent opportunity to review the major advances in our understanding of cell motility and look to the new emerging concepts in the field.

The previous meetings have attracted significant numbers of attendees from the world-leading labs in the adhesion, migration and cytoskeleton fields to present their work in an extremely interactive and collaborative environment. The meeting provides an excellent platform for open and constructive discussions between researchers from world-leading labs focused on complementary areas of study using different types of methods and approaches from advanced microscopy to computational modelling.

We are pleased to confirm that Dr. Michael Sixt from Institute of Science and Technology Austria will be presenting the keynote speech at Abercrombie.  A full list of invited speakers can be found at www.rms.org.uk/abercrombie<http://www.rms.org.uk/abercrombie>.
