Congress Venue

The conference site is suitable for 50-60 participants. Due to the development of the society and potentially resulting space limitations, we strongly encourage all participants to register early. As usual, registration will be handled as first come first serve. Registration and abstract submission is possible online only. The deadline for abstract submission is April 30, 2008. There will be no extension of this deadline.

A cancellation of a meeting registration (200 EUR) is possible until four weeks prior to the meeting and only a processing fee of EUR 50,-- will be charged to cover costs for program organization, handling of funds, cups and buttons. The remainder of the registration fee will be refunded. After that date a refund will not be possible.

The Programme will be published finally after all abstracts have been received (ca. End of June 2008)
