I hope you are all well in these still challenging times.
This is a short update to inform you that preparations for our Medical Biodefense Conference 2021 are underway.
As we cannot predict how the pandemic will develop further, we have decided to adjust the registration process for the conference this year. It is very important to us to welcome as many of you as possible for a personal exchange here in Germany. However, at this stage, we all cannot be sure how many participants will be able to travel to Munich at the end of September. Therefore, we have set up the registration for the conference according to the principle „pre-register now – pay later“. This way we can limit the financial risk for you. At the same time, we can open the conference to additional participants as soon as German health regulations allow. As soon as we can confirm your participation, we will send you further details based on your pre-registration.
Until then, we will work hard to put together an interesting and exciting scientific program. Once again, I cordially invite you to submit an abstract about your research via our abstract portal. The deadline for submission is 30June. This still gives us enough time to put together a final program and help you organize your travel and accommodation.
