Dear Colleagues,

The International Junior Academy is particularly aimed at pathologists in training and in the post training period. It provides a great opportunity to meet with experts and discuss selected topics in depth. In addition, you can meet colleagues from other countries and exchange ideas. This year’s International Junior Academy will be jointly organized by the German and the Austrian IAP divisions. The scientific program covers major fields of diagnostic pathology but also intends to give insight into modern areas such as molecular and digital pathology.

For this year Schloss Seggau in Southern Austria was chosen as venue. It is located about 30 km south of the city of Graz in the hilly parts of the province of Styria. The venue provides a modern conference center and is a perfect location for a retreat in a pleasant atmosphere.

We would like to cordially invite you to the International Junior Academy in Seggau.

With kind regards,

Prof. Gerald Höfler
President of the ÖGPath / Austrian IAP division

Prof. Sigurd Lax
Past-President and Chair of the Education Committee of the German IAP division
