ISHAM NEWS! (15-03-2017)

Dear ,

With thanks to all ISHAM members who submitted ideas for symposia at the ISHAM Congress in Amsterdam, the program is taking shape. The deadline is passed, but if you have any splendid idea to enrich the program we remain open to suggestions, please contact the program chairman directly. After approval of the local organising committee we plan to issue the main program with symposia, meetings and satellites during the first half of May.

For an overview of current pre- and post-congress activities, and other events linked to the congress, click here. A list of congress hotels will be available early April.

Earn your free participation to the congress! A photo-contest will be organized. Make beautiful pictures related to medical mycology - but in such a way that we can use them as posters at the congress to attract a general public. The fee will be waived for maker of the winning poster. Send your creations to the congress organiser. Deadline 1 May 2018. Good luck!
