25th Jubilee Meeting on Signal Transduction

November 2022 - Leonardo Hotel Weimar

Jointly organized by:


As in previous years, the 25th STS Meeting will be organized as a Joint Meeting of the Signal Transduction Society with signaling study groups of the German Societies for Immunology (DGfI) and Cell Biology (DGZ), the Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), and the German Society for Pharmacology ( DGP). If other organizations are interested in joining future STS Meetings, please contact the STS President Prof. Dr. Ingo Schmitz.

Workshops 2022

Planned Workshops:

  1. Differentiation, Stress, and Death

  2. Protein Interaction and Signaling

  3. Immune Cell Signaling

  4. Infection and Inflammation

  5. Tumor Cell Signaling

As in previous years, sponsoring companies will have the opportunity to present their innovative products for signal transduction research as a 15 min plenary lecture in a Workshop session. These presentations will conclude the Workshop sessions to allow for further discussions with the companies’ representatives at their booths during the following breaks.

Poster Sessions

All accepted poster contributions will be on display throughout the Meeting in an assigned poster area together with the sponsors’ exhibition. This comfortable area can be used for vivid discussions at the posters during the coffee breaks. Ample time will be reserved for poster viewing and discussion before dinner.

“My Poster in a nutshell" presentations

In addition, all accepted posters can be presented to the plenum in one of the Short Talk Sessions as a concise short talk. After the short talk presentation it will be possible to arrange meet at the posters for further scientific disussions.

Awards, Prizes, Stipends

STS Honorary Medal 2022

The “STS Honorary Medal 2022“ is again supported by the “International Journal of Molecular Sciences” published by MDPI (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute).

The STS honorary medal represents the most prestigious award of the STS. In 2017 the International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IJMS) became the co-sponsor. The medal is presented every year to an outstanding scientist who inspired scientists all over the world to work on receptors, mediators or genes involved in signal transduction processes. The Medal Ceremonies with informative Laudations and the Medal Award Lectures are meanwhile established highlights of the conference.

A list of Past Recipients of the STS Honorary Medal is available.


STS Science Award 2022

This prize is meant to honor outstanding research by a post doc or a junior principal investigator being member of the Signal Transduction Society. In 2022, the STS Science Award will be donated with a sum of 1500,- Euro.

The jury board consisting of the STS council and STS advisory board members will evaluate the applicants’ scientific achievements and background in general and discuss the meeting contributions in detail in order to finally take their decision on the awardee.


STS travel stipends

The STS decided to distribute a total amount of 1,500.- EUR as STS travel stipends.

In 2022, five young scientists will be awarded travel stipends (300 EUR each).


Poster Prizes


Five poster prizes will be awarded during the meeting. The candidates will be selected by the chair people of the different sessions.

Awards will be made payable by cheque and must be cashed latest by December 31st 2022 (expiration date of the cheque).

Congress Venue

The 25th STS Meeting will again take place in the Leonardo Hotel Weimar, located in the world heritage city of Weimar, Germany.

Registration and Fees

Along with relatively low accommodation rates, the STS aims at making the Meeting attractive and affordable especially for young scientists.

This year's meeting fees will be published here when registration for the 25th STS Meeting starts.

As in recent years, the regular meeting fees cover lunches, dinners (without beverages) and catering during coffee breaks and poster sessions throughout the meeting.

Moreover, the conference book and the traditional personalized STS coffee mug are also included in the registration fees.

We would like to stress that the fees for STS members do not even cover the effective costs for individual participants.

Sponsors of the STS Meeting 2022

The industrial exhibition of sponsoring companies will take place in an approximately 400 square meter area together with the poster exhibition in order to concentrate and facilitate interactions between the conference participants and the industry.

We are very grateful to all companies who want to support the STS Meeting.

Committees

The STS is a non-profit organization that currently represents around 350 scientists. Over the past years, we have developed a fairly efficient and cost-saving routine for the Meeting organization. The Meeting is organized as a Joint Meeting of the STS with signaling study groups of the German Societies for Immunology (DGfI) and Cell Biology (DGZ), the Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM) and the German Society for Pharmacology (DGP).
