Dear CYTO Virtual Participants:

2020 was one of the most challenging years in recent memory, turning the world on its head in more ways than we’d like to remember. Nonetheless, one silver lining has undoubtedly emerged: the pandemic has opened the eyes of the scientific world to the potential, utility, and necessity of cell-based analysis. A surge of publications on the role of cytometry and single-cell genomics in the battle against SARS-CoV2 has proven the importance of keeping our society connected and prosperous!

Collaboration is a hallmark of the cytometry community. We’ve seen its significance in workshops, tutorials, and panel discussions at our annual CYTO congresses. But then came the pandemic, and ISAC was forced to pivot to previously unexplored methods of interacting online. As scientists, adapting to emerging trends is nothing new. Despite the challenge of a quick transition to a new technological platform, the ISAC community came together to celebrate and support one another at CYTO Virtual 2020. It was a remarkable success.

Though the end of the pandemic is at last in sight, there is a long way to go. As such, ISAC marches forward to bring you our second virtual meeting, this year with far less trepidation and even greater excitement!

CYTO Virtual Interactive will be a meeting unlike any other we have produced! Developed with sessions scheduled for global accessibility across different time zones, this year’s meeting will focus on connecting and interacting online, building our community internationally, and, as always, showcasing the most cutting-edge science and cytometry technology.

The path to a healthier future demands global scientific collaboration, and ISAC will continue to lead in this endeavor as our field becomes increasingly relevant across the medical and scientific communities. CYTO Virtual Interactive will be an empowering, innovative international program, and I encourage you to join us!

Finally, I want to thank all of you for your support of ISAC. The work you accomplish makes a real difference in meeting the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you, on behalf of the Board of the Iberian Society of Cytometry (SIC), the Organizing Committee and the Scientific Committee, to the XVII Congress of the Iberian Society of Cytometry, to be held from 14th to 18th June, 2021, in Porto (Portugal). We are greatly honoured to take on the responsibility given to us by the SIC Board. It has been quite a challenge to organize a virtual event, but we believe our new platform will allow us to have an interactive experience, as close as possible to a conventional congress.

We will keep our programme, including educational and plenary sessions, conferences and symposia. Digital tools will provide the same opportunities for discussion in real time. It will certainly be an intuitive and dynamic experience, whether on the computer or on the smartphone.

This virtual platform will also allow us to expand the scope of our scientific programme, with the participation of national and international expert speakers and research teams.

Porto is a beautiful city: a place of culture and knowledge that would be the perfect venue to host this Congress. Even though the evolving COVID-19 pandemic has limited us in many ways, our wish is to welcome you to Porto in the near future.

For now, it will be wonderful to meet you in this new reality of digital events. We would like to thank you for your presence in the XVII SIC Congress, and we truly hope you enjoy attending it.

Gabriela Martins
Chair Organizing Committee
