It was a pleasure attending and participating in the qPCR2011 Event. I
especially liked the accent on new developments and the presence of
speakers with broad experience in the field. Together with the
possibilities to directly contact the industry made the visit
I don’t know if separate sessions and discussion sessions really add to
the quality of the event. Better keep the quality of the speakers as
high as possible and focused on the scope of new technological
Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to present my work and

|Dear qPCR 2011 Team,
Thank you very much for your wonderful organization. Everything was
great. I really enjoyed the meeting, the workshops, and my stay in
When I came back to my university, I mentioned a lot about your
organization to my colleagues. Although everyone thinks the payment is
very much for a student, as for me it was worth.
Freising is a very beautiful and peaceful city so do the campus. As a
student I really get jealous the students of TUM. I would like to do my
PhD at such a university.
It was a full scientific and social enthusiasm week for me, thank you
for organizing this type of successful occasions for us.
I look forward the coming qPCR Events (may be qPCR 2012).

|Dear Michael and Sylvia,
Thank you for the
opportunity to participate in your fantastic meeting. You are
wonderful and gracious hosts and I appreciate all the work you and your
team did to provide the meeting as well as the extra curricular
The Pros of the meeting
for me were: 1. Learning about the new developments in the
emerging areas of single cell analysis and digital qPCR. 2. I
enjoyed the next gen sequencing presentations, especially the
non-commercial presentations. 3. The meeting layout and
program promoted networking and sharing ideas with others. 4. The
support staff was outstanding and did a great job at both the meeting
and non-meeting events.
The only Con I have is
the high level of commercial presentations that were part of the
program. Some vendors did try to give a more scientific style of
presentation. But there were a few that gave more of a sales pitch than
science. Perhaps it could be encouraged that if a vendor wants to
present at the meeting that they ask a non-company scientist who has
been using their product to speak.

|Dear qPCR 2011 organisers,
The conference was excellent and very enjoyable.
The content of the seminars was excellent- but in some cases the chairs
did not exercise quite enough discipline regarding time (this is
important with parallel sessions).
The advertised poster sessions, apart from the Monday night (which was
excellent, well attended and plenty of discussion!) were not well
The catering at this conference was the best I have ever experienced
(and I am a veteran of many conferences).
It would be helpful to have a few more accommodation options linked to
the conference site (or linked more prominently, if they were already
Best regards, and thanks again for a great conference.

|To the organization team,
Thank you very much for an excellent qPCR Event! I very much enjoyed
both the symposium and the industrial exhibition, but unfortunately, I
did not have the chance to partake in the application workshops at this
occasion. All in all we had a great stay in Freising and at the
Technical University of Munich. Looking forward to reviewing some of
the excellent presentations, and of course, the symposium photo gallery
from the event.
Wish you all a great Easter from all of us in ArcticZymes!

Thank you very much for
well organised conference, I've learnt a lot of new things. Probably
more basic researches were expected, nevertheless, I'm very satisfied
that have attended it!

I also wanted to thank everyone involved in organizing this meeting for
a job exceptionally well done. I thoroughly enjoyed the meetings,
especially the ample social activities and learned a lot from
presentations and technologies presented by the various companies /

nochmals vielen Dank
für die Einladung zu dem Kongress. Ich fand ihn sehr gelungen und
habe nur einen minimalen Verbesserungsvorschlag:
mehr Gewicht auf 10 Min-Vorträge von Doktoranden und Postdocs
gelegt werden, so wie am letzten Tag.
|Dear organizers of the
