Welcome to Potsdam!

On behalf of AISETOV, SEQCET, GMS, RUSTEM, SFERETE and TraceAge it is our pleasure to invite you to the 7th International Symposium of the Federation of European Societies on Trace Elements and Minerals (FESTEM) together with the 35th Annual GMS Meeting, to be held in Potsdam/Germany from 2nd to 5th of April 2019.

The Scientific Program Committee is preparing an exciting program that will highlight a wide diversity of all aspects in the field of trace elements and minerals. We are proud to be able to present an array of excellent speakers and key note lecturers covering a variety of current aspects in epidemiology, analytical methods, biomarkers, pathophysiology, nutrition and toxicology, interactions of trace elements, human health, aging as well as animal health and diseases. Selected abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations. Poster sessions will be held and we kindly invite all participants to submit their work for any kind of presentation. Participation of young scientists is particularly encouraged, and we offer reduced conference fees.

The venue of the conference, Potsdam University Campus Griebnitzsee, is situated between Potsdam and Berlin within few minutes of major tourist attractions. The conference location offers comfortable space for the exhibition of companies' products. Coffee and lunch breaks will offer a stimulating environment to strengthen old and to foster new collaborations and to emerge new directions of research.

We are looking forward to your participation which will be a key part for an enjoyable and successful conference.
