Dear colleagues,

cardiopulmonary exercise testing became an established tool for screening, diagnosis, prognosis assessment and treatment surveillance in many cardio- pulmonary and even other conditions.

In 2015 we welcome you for a tutorial meeting in Munich. This will be a chance to get the newest information on how to interpret CPET data directly from an outstanding faculty that worked on cardiopulmonary exercise testing for decades.

The meeting includes a teaching course with lectures and tutorials in small groups. We will have live demonstrations on various types of exercise tests and on patients in typical conditions. You can pick up the topics you are mostly interested in. Finally on Saturday, all attendees and faculty members are invited to present their current research.

We hope to get a seminal discussion on these issues of tomorrow. Please send your abstracts in advance to daniel.dumitrescu@uk-koeln.de.
We welcome you to this course, practicum, and scientific meeting and hope to see you at the Deutsches Herzzentrum München in autumn 2015.
