Soon the 13th edition of ICAW

24-27th June 2019


Moscow Region, Russia


ICAW 2019 - 24-27 June 2019

The International Comet Assay Workshops are a series of scientific conferences dealing with practical and theoretical aspects of the Comet Assay, aimed at both experienced and new users of this popular technique. The Workshop has always been rather informal. It began as a satellite to the 2nd International Conference on Environmental Mutagens in 1995. At that time, the Comet Assay community was small, and we mostly knew each other. Even now, following exponential growth in popularity of this assay, the workshop retains the feeling of an extended family, reunited every two years, with a healthy intake of new family members. We try to keep registration costs as low as possible to make it easier for less established researchers to attend, and as a matter of policy no-one has expenses refunded; there are no invited speakers. All are equal, and the newest recruits can readily share ideas with the old-timers.

The first five meetings in this series were called simply 'Comet Assay Workshops'. 'International' was added in 2005. So far, all have been held in Europe! Thus it was about time to broaden the scope! Therefore, we are proud to organize the 13th ICAW in 2019 in Russia -  Pushchino (Moscow region).

We like to thank ones more the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences to host the International Comet assay Workshop (ICAW 2019) in Russia.

Also we like to thank all participants for their contribution and making it a succesfull meeting. Most important, we like to express our gratitude to all our sponsors for their support.

The next ICAW will take place in Maastricht, The Netherlands, in 2021. For now block end of May - beginning of June, and stay tuned. 

We hope to welcome you all at future meetings.
