We are delighted to invite you to the third international Munich Winter Conference on Stress. This conference will again bring together world renowned experts in the field of stress research to discuss the latest research whilst taking in the stunning and invigorating environment of the German Alps. Conference days will feature scientific morning and evening sessions, combined with the opportunity to enjoy winter activities during the day (e.g. skiing, hiking, sightseeing, etc.). In 2021 this conference had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but with vaccinations being available to everybody we can now safely organize this event in person again and look forward to seeing you all in Garmisch next year.

Regular attendee – single room: 790,-€

These registration costs include accommodation for 4 nights (March 12th – March 16th), breakfast and dinner (excluding drinks).

The deadline for registration is Nov 30th 2021. Once we reached the maximum number of attendees (120), registration will be automatically closed.

Abstract submissions for poster presentation:

At the beginning of December, thus after registration is completed, all registered participants will receive an email with instructions how to submit titles for the poster presentation. Every attending scientist will have the possibility to present a poster at the conference. We will not ask abstracts from the attendees in order to enable everybody to present their latest, potentially also unpublished, data.

Furthermore, we will select a few outstanding young scientists to present their research integrated into the main sessions together with the established scientists. If you want to be considered for this, we will ask for an abstract and a cv, but only for the selection procedure. All the details for this will be explained in the future emails to all participants.

We look forward to welcoming you in Garmisch-Partenkirchen next year.


How to reach the conference hotel
