General Information

Sponsoring of the meeting:

The expenses for this meeting are entirely covered except for personal travel expenses (free meals and free accommodation for two nights).


Wolfsberg, February 8 – February 10, 2016

The purpose of the meeting is to get to know colleagues in the same field, to present her/his own results, to get to know projects at other institutes, to initiate regular exchanges of ideas or even to start collaborations.


Registered attendees will upload abstracts which will outline the subjects and key-words that will finally form the structure of the meeting. Each participant of the meeting will present her/his Ph.D. project and the experimental results either in form of a poster or a 10 minute talk. One to two senior scientists per University (Basel, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, Zurich) will be present, mainly as chairmen and to participate in the discussions.



Schloss Wolfsberg is a training centre of UBS close to Ermatingen (TG) in a forest above the Untersee. It is a remote place in a beautiful environment and provides all the facilities for such a meeting: Seminar-rooms, accommodation, sport facilities.

The provisional time schedule, which will depend upon the number of participants, is to arrive on Wednesday, February 25, after lunch and to start the seminar the same day in the afternoon. The meeting will close on Friday Wednesday 27, lunch time.

The meeting will be sponsored by the Swiss Society for Allergologists and Immunologists (SGAI), the Kontaktgruppe für Forschungsfragen Basel, FONDATION ACTERIA and UBS, which will overtake the costs including meals and accommodation.
