The deadline for abstract submission for the 16th Germinal Centre Conference (GCC) www.gcc16.org will be extended to the 10th of April for technical reasons. This will give the opportunity to those who failed to send an abstract to repeat this attempt and to others who forgot the deadline to still send in an abstract.

This distinguished and stimulating meeting has a long tradition and the next GCC will be held in Frankfurt am Main (Germany) on July5th-9th, 2009 and will be complemented by a workshop on intravital imaging techniques and a follow-up meeting on neuro-endocrine-immune interactions (July 9th-11th, 2009). The invited speakers are confirmed and a preliminary programme is available under www.gcc16.org.

Topics of the conference:
- Lymphoid tissue onto- and neo-genesis
- Affinity maturation in germinal centres
- T and B lymphocyte differentiation and activation
- Links between innate and adaptive immunity
- Neuro-immune interactions
- Mathematical modelling of immune responses
- Intravital microscopy
