General Announcement

We currently have every reason to be optimistic that we will have a real in-person meeting in Frankfurt this autumn. The Covid incidence keeps sinking and the vaccination campaign is picking up speed, in particular in our community. But we need you to share this confidence and make the decision to join this annual meeting. In this spirit, we would like to encourage you, as well as your team and your students to participate in our historical 100th meeting.

We are grateful that our plenary speakers already confirmed to travel to Frankfurt and that many of you have already contributed in providing an excellent set of symposia that catch the breadth and depth of state-of-the-art Physiology (check the webpage for details).

Of course, it might still be possible that a novel Corona variant might change the game. But no worries, we also prepared for this unlikely scenario. We will then move to an online event in December (20.-21.12.21) and refund a substantial part of your conference fees. This will guarantee that all accepted abstracts will be presented. We are happy that our long-time partner K.I.T. Group is also in excellent position to host a digital format.

So – leave the pandemic behind and attend our 100th annual meeting. We are excited to welcoming you in Frankfurt!
