After nearly two years of delay we decided to try a cautiously optimistic outlook and proceed with the planning of the next Prion Conference.
On behalf of the Prion2020/2022 Congress Organizing Committee and the NeuroPrion Association, we heartily invite you to join us for the International Conference Prion2020/2022 from 13.-16. September 2022 in Göttingen.
We hope to meet in person, but cannot exclude completely that given the current situation, the meeting might be switched to a hybrid option.
The Göttingen Prion2020/2022 Confence will follow Prion2017 in Edinburgh, Prion2018 in Santiago de Compostela and Prion2019 in Edmonton. We intend to follow the format as well as high standard and quality of the previous meetings. The Prion2020/2022 aims to bring together leading scientists in the field of prion- and prion-like disorders and will discuss latest developments in structural biology, prion propagation, transmission, animal and human diseases. We hope to have lively discussions about the nature of the agent, the risk to human and animal health, and emerging therapeutic concepts.
We hope to attract many young scientists at the start of their careers and will provide ample opportunities to speak and present their work. We have allocated considerable space for selected oral communications.
The program will comprise keynote lectures dedicated to specific topics. Oral presentations and poster sessions will be selected from submitted abstracts. Pre-conference workshops and family organization meetings will be part of the program as well as the hot-topics session at the end of the conference.
Göttingen is a university city, providing a fantastic back-drop to the congress. The venue of the conference will be the university lecture hall and all facilities needed for the conference are available.
