European Society for Analytical Cellular Pathology (ESACP)

History



ESACP was founded on Nov.19, 1986 in Munich/Langwieder See at a meeting of the Concerted Action for Automated Cytometry (CAAC). CAAC was a concerted action within the framework of the European Economic Community (EEC).
Participants of the foundation meeting were: G.Auer(Sweden), P.Benedetti(Italy), G.Brugal(France), G.Burger(Germany), Y.Collan(Finland), C.J.Cornelisse(Netherlands), O.A.N.Husain(UK), A.Reith(Norway), F.Rilke(Italy), D.Rutovitz(UK), E.Sprenger(Germany), B.Stenkvist(Sweden), G.Valet(Germany), P.Viallet(France), L.Vindelov(Denmark), G.P.Vooijs(Netherlands). These scientists constituted the foundation council (1986-92).
The goal of the society is to promote the advancement of clinically oriented cytometry (medically oriented cell and tissue imaging).
The society organised congresses in:
6th Congress: Heidelberg 1999 (Günter Valet)
5th Congress: Oslo, Norway 1997 (Havard Danielsen, Albrecht Reith)
