Dear colleagues, partners and friends,

despite our high motivation, and desire to conduct the SOAP-Meeting as planned from February 17 – 19, 2022, we are now unfortunately facing a situation that forces us to postpone the meeting to July 14 – 16, 2022. As we all know, the SOAP-Meeting is an international meeting with participants from worldwide countries – inside and outside of Europe. Many of these countries – including Germany – are again undergoing travel restrictions, the cases are rising everywhere, and national and international regulatory restrictions are getting intensified. As organizers it is our duty and responsibility to make sure we hold the meeting under the safest possible circumstances. Given the current global situation – after multiple discussions with global infectious diseases experts – we are today convinced to take the right and most responsible decision for everyone involved.

What does this change for you? Other than the dates, nothing will change. The scientific program remains the same, and all registrations stay valid for the new dates. If you have already booked a hotel room in the Dorint Parkhotel Bremen, this can be cancelled free of charge and we will of course have the same conditions for the new dates.

We are all sad not to meet you shortly next month but we must see it as a chance to come back even stronger in summer. Stay tuned!

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us anytime. We are happy to help.


Prof. Dr. C. Can Cedidi
