Dear ,

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 Marcus Teixeira, 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! Stay updated in the ISHAM facebook and Twitter. We will soon give you more details about Y-ISHAM grants to participate in the congress.  

The ISHAM2018 organizing committee strongly encourages ISHAM Working Group conveners to organize their workshops as pre- and post-congress activities of the Amsterdam congress. We will help you with facilities in Amsterdam or elsewhere in The Netherlands. Public transport is excellent, the congress center can be reached within 1-2 hours from any mycological center in the country. Contact Sybren de Hoog
