Dear Colleagues,

Many of you have already registered for the joint meeting of 36th GMS, 7th ISZB, TEMA17 and 14th ISTERH – the International Conference of Trace Elements and Minerals 2022 (ICTEM). We are looking forward to hosting an interesting and inspiring meeting and having all of you here!

The on-site conference will take place in the beautiful city of Aachen. Included in the registration fee is a guided tour through the historical city center, a trip to the “Dreiländereck” where Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany meet, a concert in the historical cathedral, and a gala dinner (all based on availability, spots are limited, first come – first served). Some impressions of Aachen can be found here.

We are happy to announce that the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology sponsors prizes for selected posters that will be awarded during the conference!

We update our preliminary program regularly and continuously add information on this homepage. We have received some mails regarding the war in the Ukraine and its implications for travel and cancellation of registrations. We are still planning to host the conference and added a new section to our FAQs to answer some of the open questions. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us!

We hope to welcome many of you here after the long period of online meetings!

Best regards,

Lothar Rink
