Dear Friends, dear Members of the Auxological Society,

Just a short note before our forthcoming

28th Aschauer Soirée in Krobielowice, Growth during Time of Fear and Emotional Stress
         Saturday 14th 2020 in Krobielowice, Poland.

This year it will be difficult for many of you to really participate face-to-face. For this reason, we will have a dual meeting, partially physical and partially virtual. We hope that this new experience may still be successful, interesting, and stimulating.

As many of you live in different time zones, we decided to slightly adapt the schedule for presentations and discussions. We will start a little later, at 12:00 and proceed without our usually long lunch break until 20:00.

As we need some planning in advance, we would like to ask all those of you who would like to actively contribute, to send your presentations in advance e.g. by mail (Slawomir, Christiane, Michael (Of course we hope that you are prepared to give your life talk via zoom by screen sharing – it is just in case of some unforeseen problems).

As always the contributions should be short (10 minutes plus 5 minutes discussion), and we offer four time slots:

12:00 to 14:00
14:00 to 16:00
16:00 to 18:00 and
18:00 to 20:00

Please let us know which of the time slots fit best for you so that we can finalize program.

The virtual meeting is scheduled via zoom by Christiane Scheffler/University of Potsdam, Germany. For details regarding the zoom converence, please contact Christiane  (

We are so much looking forward to meeting you in November !


We are very pleased that last year’s Soiree proceedings are now in press in our new journal

“Human Biology and Public Health”  (,

together with already two more manuscripts. And we expect several review papers until the end of this year. We will be happy to receive more manuscripts. Please consider that a major focus is the work of talented students. Please motivate your co-workers !
