16–18 September 2018 2nd Mycokey International Conference

Wuhan, China

This Conference, hosted jointly by Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS), Hubei Academy of Agricultural Sciences (HAAS) and Chinese Society of Plant Protection (CSPP) will involve a wide range of mycotoxin management topics covering the whole food and feed chain. Welcome both regional and international participants to share experiences and technology on mycotoxin management.


22–26 September 2018 The 19th EU-IST Congress

Yerevan, Armenia

The 19th Congress of the European Section of the International Society of Toxinology will session in mid- September, in the Elite Plaza Business Center and it will be focused mainly on Basic Science of Animal, Plant and Microbial Toxins and their applications in health; as well as environmental, topics, public perception and social impacts associated to toxinology development. Through the valuable contribution of Invited Conferences of well-known scientists, the works presentation, poster, and panels realization; the main tendencies and challenges will be shown in the event's thematic axes. It will promote the international dialogue, between different generations of scientist and other professionals; which will certainly contribute to its success.


24–27 September 2018 The 4th Prato Conference on Pore Forming Proteins

Prato, Iataly

The 4th Prato Conference on Pore Forming Proteins will be held Monday 24th September to Thursday 27th September 2018 at the Monash University Prato Centre in Italy.

Come to Prato and explore the wonderful world of pore-forming toxins: Pore forming proteins (PFPs) are molecules that self-assemble from a soluble form into oligomeric membrane spanning pores. These molecules play diverse roles in processes such as immunity, bacterial pathogenicity, venom toxicity and developmental biology. From a translational perspective PFPs are also emerging as key molecules of utility in medical research, protection of agricultural crops from pests, DNA sequencing, and as tumour therapeutics.

The meeting will span a wide spectrum of research (both academic and industry focused) on Pore Forming Proteins from all kingdoms of life and across a range of different functions.


21–26 October 2018 The 18th International Conference on Harmful Algae

Nantes, France

The ICHA 2018 scientific program will foster discussions and hopes to inspire participants from a wide array of themes to initiate collaborations within and across disciplines for the advancement of our field. While major culprits of public safety problems (the genera Alexandrium, Dinophysis, Pseudo-nitzschia for marine systems or Anabaena, Aphanizomenon and Microcystis for freshwater systems) still continue to thrive in our waters, many advances have been made in monitoring for these species and their toxins. Still, as the environment and anthropogenic stressors continue to change, our coastal and freshwater systems also undergo heavy changes. Therefore, our ability to detect novel or emerging organisms and their toxins become of growing importance. It also becomes clearer that the societal impacts of Harmful Algae are multiple and do not simply concern fisheries and aquaculture but increasingly so other sectors, including tourism, shipping, desalination and renewable energy supply. Therefore, we felt it important to reiterate the need to translate fundamental science into knowledge to help overcome societal challenges. We have thus placed the conference under the theme “From Ecosystems to Socio-ecosystems”.


5–10 May 2019 11th International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria

Kraków, Poland

International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria (ICTC) is a periodic summit of an international community focusing on the study of cyanotoxins and toxic cyanobacteria. Poland was chosen as the venue of the next ICTC by the participants of the conference in Wuhan in 2016. The five-day event includes interactive sessions and lively discussion panels which promote active scientific exchange and communication between scientists and students. This event will feature recent findings from leading academic experts in the field in the form of lectures and posters. Participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience from the experts on the subject and to network with other enthusiasts.
