Location: RAI Congress Center
ISHAM Working Group Dermatophytes has a slot for a pre-congress workshop in The
Netherlands, 28 and 29 June 2018, just prior to the ISHAM Congress in
Amsterdam. Since there are so many developments in the systemic relatives of
Onygenales, we thought this would be a good opportunity to expand this to the
entire order, thus covering the dermatophytes as well as the ‘classical’
systemic fungi – which are not very classical anymore. The
workshop will cover important topics about epidemiology, diagnostics, taxonomy,
systematics, population genetics, comparative phylogenomics, functional
genomics and proteomics of those relevant fungal pathogens. We hope you
like this idea. Below please find a tentative program. If you have any data to
present, or if you have any other suggestions, please let us know.
workshop will be held in the RAI Congress Center in Amsterdam, that is the same
venue where the ISHAM Congress will start on 30 June. No individual support
will be possible, but local facilities including lunches and dinners will be provided
free of charge. Registration is compulsory; see the website.
For speakers the registration fee of the workshop will be waived. Congress
participation and fee is separate from workshop participation.
are expected early 2018; you will be notified. A special issue of the journal Mycopathologia can be composed on the
basis of a selection of papers in the workshop.
