Online Conference ICTEM2021 in August & On-Site Conference ICTEM2022 in June 2022

Dear Colleagues,

please note that we had to postpone the ICTEM conference due to the unforeseeable situation with the new corona virus Sars-CoV-2 (Covid-19).

The presidents and chairmen of the four societies (ISZB, GMS, ISTHER and TEMA) have decided to postpone the congress once more to 2022.

The new date for the on-site congress is June 5th - 10th 2022. I am looking forward to see you in person in Aachen.

However, we decided to still have a smaller online congress this year from August 2nd  ‑ 6th 2021, to offer a congress for the current generation of PhD students or postdocs.

We will organize this meeting with our own staff to facilitate the participation at NO charges for members of one of the societies and early stage researchers. For more information please visit

If you would like to receive updates via mail please send a message with the subject “Updates” to ictemukaachende.

Best regards from Aachen,

Lothar Rink
on behalf of the local organizing committee
