Dear yeast researchers and friends,
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 28th International Conference on Yeast Genetics and Molecular Biology to be held at Prague Congress Centre in Prague, Czech Republic, from August 27th to September 1st, 2017. The conference is intended to attract all yeast researchers.
The symposia and workshops cover highly significant research fields and are open for all yeast species. To make sure that the conference gives an overview of the latest developments in yeast research we will focus on keynote speakers, invited speakers and selected contributions of participants.
The Prague Congress Centre is one of the modern architectural landmarks of Prague. From the Centre, visitors have a unique view of the city, including the Prague Castle, former residence of kings of Bohemia and present seat of the president. The Centre is ideally accessible by the underground and the north-south highway, especially when the free public transportation will be provided by the Major of the city Prague to all participants.
What is also important, Prague is located in the very heart of Europe. Thanks to it, the city can be reached very easily from all destinations over the world. We expect an important participation of our colleagues from neighboring countries representing a strong Central and Eastern European participation in the meeting. These colleagues will be able to reach Prague by car or by train, thus assuring a large attendance of participants from this region. The meeting will be an excellent opportunity to promote personal contacts and fruitful international collaborations between scientists from Central and Eastern Europe and their colleagues from all over the world.
The Conference will start on Sunday, August 27th by Keynote opening lectures followed by welcome party. Social events will take place on Wednesday, August 30th (e.g. Concert in church) and Thursday, August 31st, 2017.
We look forward to welcoming you in Prague.
(on Behalf of the Local Organizing Committee)
The Conference will be held under the Auspice of
Prof. Jiří Drahoš
President of the Czech Academy of Sciences
