7th International Workshop on CMV and Immunosenescence; FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT


Dear colleagues:

The „7th International Workshop on CMV and Immunosenescence“ at Waldthausen Castle near Mainz, Germany, (November 08.- 10, 2018), is approaching.Attached please find:

(1)  Flyer with the preliminary program showing all dates relevant for the planning of your trip.

These dates are fixed.
The program is preliminary only with respect to the contributors and the titles of their talks, as these depend on your attendance.
For finalizing the program in due time, we definitively need your titles and abstracts by:

September, 15, 2018

It is our aim to have oral presentations as many as the schedule allows, at least one per group. In addition, we have space for 20 Poster Presentations  (maximum of 1.40 meter x 1.10 meter, portrait format, available full time) for students (pre-postdoc participants), who likely need to document active attendance for getting refunded by their home institutions. To promote active participation of students, we plan an extra session for oral presentations given by students (see the program flyer).

(2)  Abstract Form

For a standardized appearance, please use the form provided. All abstracts will be made available on the Home Page ( Upon Abstract submission, please give us a note in case you plan to present poster only (this tells us not to consider your abstract for oral presentation).

(3)  Workshop Registration Form

We have blocked for us 80 single-bed and 4 double-bed rooms for the 3 nights from Thursday Nov. 08 (arrival date) through Sunday Nov. 11 (departure date). Please note that the academy (regularly teaching young bankers) has limited accommodation capacity in the very close-by guest houses, and mainly single-bed rooms. So, if you plan to come with spouse/husband, it is highly  recommended to book early for catching one of the four double-bed rooms available. 

I would be pleased to welcome you at Waldthausen.
Best wishes
