In 2017, we commemorate the 110th ‘birthday’ of the late Prof. Janos Selye who died in Montreal, Canada in 1982. The 2017 Summer School on Stress (SSS) will be organized in his home town in Komárno/Komárom, Slovakia. The SSS is hosted by the Janos Selye University, named after Hans Selye who grew up and finished his secondary school in Komárno. The university has been established in 2004, and plays a critical intellectual and educational center role in Slovakia. The conference will be held on the University campus. The University Students’ Home/Dormitory is available for the participants’ accommodation. There are several hotels in the City center, close to the University.
