We have published the final hygiene guidelines for FJS 2022. As of March 2022, the number of COVID cases and risk of infection is rising again in Germany. Although local, federal, and national restrictions have loosened recently and further loosening is announced, we feel that with the current situation it is not appropriate to loosen FJS hygiene guidelines. The conference will be carried out according to the hygiene guidelines from February 13, 2022, i.e., employing a 2G+ regulation and daily testing. Click here to view the new hygiene rules.





We have now outlined a detailed hygiene plan for the FJS2022. You can find the corresponding pdf file here. Please read the guidelines carefully before attending the FJS2022 so we can ensure a safe conference environment. Thank you!






Registration for the FJS 2022 is now closed. We are looking forward to welcome you to the city of Hannover in March!





It is yet not too late to register! We have extended the deadline for registration until February 9. For registration, click here.








Following the recent developments of the coronavirus pandemic, we would like to inform you that we currently plan to implement the 2G+ rule at next year’s FJS. All attendees therefore have to provide a certificate of vaccination or a certificate of recovery and additionally need to provide an up-to-date negative test. A booster vaccination will not replace the negative test. All the above will be checked by the FJS Team at the registration desk. In addition, it will be mandatory to wear FFP2/KN95/N95 face masks during the entire conference

We are aware that the university, federal and state regulations are subject to change in the next few months. We will keep you updated on this news section and our social media channels. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
