Prior to the ISHAM congress in Amsterdam, a Young ISHAM Day will be organized. We strongly encourage you to send your suggestions, such as topics to be covered and comments from our previous Y-ISHAM 2015 day, to Ferry Hagen, The organizers are looking forward to have not only Y-ISHAM members during the Y-ISHAM day; it will be open to the entire ISHAM community. Speakers at the Y-ISHAM day will also have the possibility to present their work, orally or as a poster, during the main congress.  Looking forward to see you in Amsterdam 2018!
