This year, for the first time, this European Conference took place in Germany. Fat-soluble vitamins (FSV) offer a wide field of research and have brought together European scientists and students eve- ry three to four years since 1960, first in the UK and then touring Europe. After Arcachon (1996) and Toulouse (2000) in France and Rieti (2003) in Italy, this year Jena in Germany provided an opportunity to listen and to lecture, to discuss and to develop state- of-the-art and new approaches, illuminating the role of these compounds for human health and more. A very efficient interchange of knowledge took place due to the traditionally small number of around 50 participants. Students, in particular, took this opportunity to present their work on a European level and to talk to experts in the field. The 13th FSV meeting was hosted by the Institute of Nutrition at the renowned Friedrich Schiller University in Jena. It took place in the Old Castle in Dornburg (10 km from Jena), that has just been completely refurbished to meet the demands of a modern meeting place while keeping its beautiful historical ambience. Accommodation was in Jena, a city of 100,000 inhabitants and also famous for its optical trade (Zeiss, Jenoptik).
