6th Max Planck Epigenetics Meeting
The international meeting on the broad area of epigenetics and chromatin takes place at the MPI of Immunobiology and Epigenetics in Freiburg on 30 November - 2 December 2022.

After we had to postpone the meeting in December 2020 because of the Corona restrictions, we are now opening this Max Planck Freiburg Epigenetics Meeting as an in-person conference. We will provide the following format, which is at a reduced audience and can have 80-100 participants in a comfortable setting.

The meeting offers an exciting line-up of 25 invited, and up to 10 short talks that will be selected from the submitted abstracts. We will also have one poster session of around 30-40 posters. Talks and poster session will be made accessible to members of the MPI-IE via in-house zoom streaming and on-site interactions.
