Dear Colleagues,

We are proud today to invite you to the 39th International MEDICHEM Congress on Occupational and Environmental Health in the Production and Use of Chemicals, to be held in Heidelberg, Germany, from 2 - 5 June 2011.

25 years after the last congress in Germany in 1986 we cordially welcome you to return to the cradle of MEDICHEM, which was founded by Prof. Alfred Thiess in Ludwigshafen in 1972. At the invitation of BASF SE, the congress will start with an excursion to BASF in Ludwigshafen near Heidelberg (optional). High-ranking representatives from Politics, Industry, Trade Unions and Academia will be welcoming you at the official Opening Ceremony on Thursday evening.

With an A-List of brilliant speakers we intend to provide scientific excellence and exchange of knowledge on cutting-edge developments in all fields concerned. They will be discussing the challenges and finding solutions together with you, the participants of the premier 2011 International Health Event in Heidelberg, within the different topics of the MEDICHEM 2011 Theme: Occupational Health in a Changing World.

MEDICHEM's prime objective is international co-operation on those occupational and environmental health issues of universal concern related to the production and use of chemicals that are most effectively resolved through a globally co-ordinated approach. MEDICHEM promotes the exchange of information and ideas between all those involved: Occupational health physicians, occupational hygienists, epidemiologists, toxicologists, environmental and safety specialists, occupational health nurses, regulators, and students in these fields. To be able to provide this unique and only complete programme for global experts in these fields we offer you the platform: You are cordially invited to submit abstracts for free oral or poster presentations.

In choosing the Marriott Hotel we are convinced that we are offering you all conceivable comforts of a most convenient congress venue. During the breaks you will have direct access from the conference room to the waterside terrace, where you can relax and talk to colleagues. Lunch will be served in the water-side Mediterranean restaurant.

To give many participants the convenience of on-site accommodation at the congress venue, the modern and comfortable 5-star Marriott Hotel, situated on the banks of the Neckar River, is offering you a sensational special discount rate of 118 Euro for single rooms, including breakfast buffet and use of the pool. If you register and book early you will have the additional privilege, at no extra charge, of staying in one of the rooms overlooking the Neckar..

The City of Heidelberg, with its romantic townscape is an event in itself. The city is also home to Germany's oldest university which will be celebrating its 625th anniversary in 2011. The harmonious ensemble of the world-famous castle ruins, the Old Town and the Neckar river nestling among the hills inspired the painters and poets of 19th century Romanticism. The city's fascination continues until today for millions of visitors from all over the world.

With the conference fee of 590 Euro, which also includes the social events, we hope to satisfy participants who have an active working life. To give a possibility for our retired colleagues to join the congress we offer a reduced fee for them of 250 Euro, all-inclusive. Register early for reduced prices!

The congress social events (all included in the conference fee) will feature the Opening Ceremony, framed by music, with cold and warm buffet reception on Thursday, an organ concert in the Church of the Holy Spirit in the heart of Heidelberg's famous Old Town and the reception by the Mayor of Heidelberg at the Town Hall just opposite the church on Friday, as well as the Champagne reception on the Castle Gallery, the Gala Dinner in the Castle, and the Giant Firework display on Saturday.

With this all-inclusive conference package we hope that all participants will not only benefit from a productive and profitable congress but also enjoy a few memorable days in Heidelberg in the early summer of 2011. We greatly look forward to welcoming you at MEDICHEM 2011 in Heidelberg, Germany.
