human CHEMOSENSATION 2010

human CHEMOSENSATION 2010

The meeting is going to take place in Dresden, Germany. It will begin on Thursday, December 2nd, and end on Saturday, December 4th, of 2010.

It will be followed by an international meeting of the German Working Group “olfaction and gustation” which will begin on Saturday evening, December 4th and end on Sunday afternoon, December 5th.

About the meeting:

The human CHEMOSENSATION 2010 meeting is a conference in the tradition of a series of meetings which started in 1995 at the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Erlangen, Germany. These three previous meetings, termed BIORESPONSE, of this series of conferences have been received extremely well by all participants, largely because a major focus is on the interpersonal exchange between researchers. The scientific focus of the meeting is on human chemosensation. Among other topics the 2010 meeting is going to highlight qualitative olfactory dysfunction.

Continuing medical education: Each day of the meeting will get you 6 points.

Location:

It is organized by the Smell & Taste Clinic of the Department of Otorhinolaryngology of the University of Dresden Medical School, Fetscherstrasse 4, 01307 Dresden, Germany; phone +49-351-458-4189 or -3197.

The conference venue will be at the facilities of the Medizinisch Technisches Zentrum, Fiedlerstrasse 42 (Google Earth Coordinates: 51.054239 13.783372). Please click here to receive information. Help desk telephone number: +49-1629-566 056

Fee for participation is 125 Euro, for people with an industrial background it is 600 Euro; students pay 35 Euro (although these fees also cover participation in the meeting of the Working Group Olfaction and Gustation on Sunday, 5th of December it would be wonderful if a donation would be made in order to defray costs for the meeting of the Working Group). Accompanying persons who would like to participate in the dinners pay 40 euro per dinner. The fee should preferably be paid by cash at the registration desk; however, it can also be paid by CreditCardor bank transfer.

Deadline for registration is Sunday, the 21st of November 2010. Please send an informal application including an abstract to Thomas Hummel. Please indicate whether you would prefer an oral or a poster presentation. Also, please indicate whether you would like to participate in the dinner on Friday (3rd of Dec) and Saturday (4th of Dec)
