Thanks 05.09.2012


Now we are looking back to ECF19 which is now history and was successful having received very good worldwide attention. We want to thank you as participant for your dedication to ECF19. The over 400 Delegates of 43 Nations worldwide benefited from very good scientific contacts. The scientific programme with over 350 Plenary Invited and Session Speeches, 80 Posters arranged daily in up to 18 sessions showed the state of the art. But aside of the scientific programme we are also proud of the ECF19 Social Programme. It was surely a "time to make friends".

The ECF19 Photos will be available for viewing and downloading on new page "Snapshots", which will appear on the next week. We hope that you will have some contemplative time to look at.

We all will be very glad to meeting you again in Kazan!
With our very best regards!
