Dye tracing is a well established, multi discipline practice. This one day workshop, brought together a number of experienced "dye tracers" with divergent uses for fluorescence based procedures. These experiences are supplemented by presentations covering an introduction to fluorescence and the theory behind dye tracing. The workshop was sponsored by the British Council (PMI2 Connect Grant), University of Warwick (UK) and Srinakharinwirot University in collaboration with colleagues from Cranfield University (UK) and University of Kristianstad (Sweden).
