12–13 January 2019 Immunology of Fungal Infections (GRS) Gordon Research Seminar
Galveston, TX, USA
In this Seminar, the upcoming next generation of fungal immunologists from around the world will be brought together to present cutting-edge ideas and novel insights that helps us to understand the mechanisms underlying fungal-host interactions, the molecular pathways that promote protection against fungal infections, and how this information might be exploited in the clinic. The program will promote discussion on these topics and will conclude with a final training session on communicating research to journal editors, the public and grant committees.
15–16 March 2019 14th Annual Fungal Update
The QE2 Conference Centre, London, UK
An outstanding international faculty will present the latest issues in the field of mycology. The topics covered will be wide ranging: point-of care fungal diagnostics; the ever present challenge of fungal diseases in haemato-oncolgy; candida and global women’s health and resistant vulvovaginal candidiasis; the Candida auris story so far; the rise of invasive aspergillosis complicating severe influenza, the new phenomenon of CNS aspergillosis in previously low-risk patient groups with kinase-inhibitors for cancer, as well as the underlying immunological host-pathogen interactions at play in these two settings…and even basic plant and animal mycological research!
18–24 May 2019 Human Fungal Pathogens 2019
La Colle-sur-Loup, France
20–23 May 2019 International Symposium on Fungal Stress – ISFUS 2019
São José dos Campos, SP, Brazil
The Fungal Kingdom is responsible for many ecosystem services as well as many industrial and agricultural products. Nevertheless, how these fungal species function and carry out these services is dependent on their capacity to grow under different stress conditions caused by a variety of abiotic factors such as ionizing radiation, UV radiation, extremes of temperature, acidity and alkalinity, and environments of low nutritional status, low water activity, or polluted with, e.g. toxic metals or xenobiotics. The International Symposium on Fungal Stress – ISFUS will present renowned speakers that work with fungal stress in the areas of Industrial Mycology, Agricultural Mycology, and Medical Mycology.
24–27 June 2019 7th Conference on Physiology of Yeasts and Filamentous Fungi (7th PYFF)
The EFB and the organisers of PYFF7 are delighted to invite you to Milan to attend the 7th Conference on Physiology of Yeast and Filamentous Fungi. Milan is famous for fashion and design, commerce and finance, food and football, and culture and education (www.turismo.milano.it). It is home to multiple Universities and is a biotechnology hub for the north of Italy. PYFF7 will be hosted by the University of Milano-Bicocca (UNIMIB), located in the northeast of the city and linked to the centre and to the other parts of the city by train (Greco Pirelli railway station), surface transits and subway.
The aim of the PYFF series is to bring together a strong interdisciplinary cohort of researchers, at all stages of their careers, who share an interest in applied and basic aspects of the physiology of yeasts and filamentous fungi. The series has been running since 2001 and attracts a broad spread of researchers from academia and industry. PYFF7 is coming at a key juncture in the development of this field. During the last few years, the explosion of comparative and functional genomics, the development of system and synthetic biology and the expansion of metabolic and evolutionary engineering, have boosted our understanding of these eukaryotic microbes and led to exciting developments in the biotechnological, food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries.

Hotel Sheraton, Santiago, Chile
The ProkaGENOMICS conference series has been launched in 2003 by the GenoMik funding initiative of the BMBF and took place every two years, until 2011. In 2015 the North German Center of Microbial Genomics (www.nzmg.de) will revive this successful conference series devoted to all aspects of microbial genomics, one of the most rapidly evolving fields in molecular life sciences. The increasing power of high-throughput technologies now allows simultaneous examination of thousands of genes, transcripts, proteins, and metabolites. These so-called Omics technologies have become the new mantra in microbial genomics. They are powerful tools that allow monitoring of regulatory processes genome-wide under hundreds of different conditions, even single-cell analyses are becoming possible. The ProkaGENOMICS 2015 conference will address this challenging field of microbiology.
The topics of the conference will be as follows:
Microbial Genomics in Biotechnology & Industry
Microbial Communities & MetaOmics
Functional Genomics of Infectious Diseases
Host Microbe Interplay
Global Gene Regulation & Proteome Dynamics
Systems Biology & Single Cell Genomics
ProkaGENOMICS 2015 will be the perfect occasion for scientists from Germany and abroad to exchange and discuss new knowledge and technologies with the best international researchers in this exciting field of microbiology.
