Held from October 21st - 24th at the Adelaide Convention Centre, ACS 2018 will be a three day conference preceded by a one day workshop, covering a wide range of research, translational and clinical aspects of cytometry.

The Plenary and Keynote sessions will feature our invited speakers, and the parallel and poster sessions will be chosen from abstract submissions.

We encourage anyone from passionate long-time enthusiasts to fresh-faced cytometry newbies to come along.  There will be something for everyone, and ACS represents the best opportunity to discuss with and learn from world-class cytometrists, not just from Australasia, but from around the world.

We have an exceptional line-up of speakers with a diverse range of cytometric applications from mass cytometry to exosome research and forensic cytometry.  Please check our website in the coming weeks and months, or click the Sign Up button below to subscribe to notification emails and be kept up-to-date with conference announcements as they happen.

We look forward to welcoming you to Adelaide for ACS 2018!

About Adelaide


We might be a bit biased, but we think Adelaide is the best city in the country!

With magnificent beaches, exceptional food and of course our world-class wine regions, what's not to love?

Our conference is being held right in the heart of the Riverbank Precinct, and just a few minutes walk from the heart of the city.  With trams, trains and buses all on the doorstep of our venue, nothing is out of your reach.

A short tram ride will take you out to Glenelg, one of Adelaide's iconic tourist destinations, with cafes, restaurants, bars and shops, and of course our beautiful Glenelg Beach.

If the wine region is more your style, why not come a day early and join a group of like-minded cytometry and wine enthusiasts on the wine tour we have organised for delegates.  A bus will collect attendees from the front of the conference venue in the morning, take you out to several wonderful wineries around the Barossa and includes lunch, all before returning you back to the conference venue in the evening.  But get in fast, seats are strictly limited to 24.  For more info, details can be found on the Registration page, bookings will open when registration begins.

For even more great ideas of things to do and places to go, check out the South Australian Tourism website or the Adelaide Convention Bureau.
