XI International Fungal Biology Conference (Sept. 29 - Oct. 3, 2013, Karlsruhe, Germany
First announcement of the XI International Fungal Biology Conference (Sept. 29 - Oct. 3, 2013, Karlsruhe, Germany)
We are happy to announce the upcoming XI International Fungal Biology Conference in Karlsruhe, Germany. This international conference series started in 1965 and was held since then in irregular intervals at the following places:
Bristol, England, 1965
Provo, Utah, USA 1973
Gwatt, Switzerland 1980
Stirling, Scotland 1987
Helen, Georgia, USA 1991
Konstanz, Germany 1996
Groningen, Holland 1999
Guanajuato, Mexico 2002
Nancy, France 2006
Ensenada, Mexico 2009
Karlsruhe, Germany 2013
The aim of this Conference series has always been to especially focus on exciting new fields at the frontiers of fungal biology. These fields are often developed by young scientists, who will be therefore especially chosen as speakers. The meeting will be organized by a local committee the international steering committee. We are trying to put up a most interesting program with speakers from all over the world. The program should be complementary to other recent fungal biology meetings, such as the Asilomar Fungals Genetics , the European Fungal Genetics and the recent Gordon Conferences. In addition, there will be multiple opportunities for all scientists to present their work in Concurrent Sessions as well as in Poster presentations. The meeting will be combined with the biannual German Molecular Mycology meeting.
A preliminary program you will find here: http://www.iab.kit.edu/conference/
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all in Karlsruhe!
Karlsruhe is located in the South of Germany and is amongst the warmest areas. It is located in the Rhine vallee just at the border with France. Two mountain areas are close by, the beautiful Black Forest and the Pfalz, a lovely area well known for its wines. In an excursion during the meeting you will have the opportunity to get an impression of this wine region and taste some selected wines. The timing of the conference coincides perfectly with the wine harvest, and you will see the colorful autumn forests of the Pfalz.
See you soon in Karlsruhe!
