The International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria is a periodic summit of an international community focusing on the study of cyanotoxins and toxic cyanobacteria. The next ICTC 11 will be held in Kraków, Poland, 5–10 May, 2019.
The Local Organizing Committee agreed with Toxins to call for a Special Issue related to the research presented during ICTC 11. The submitted articles should contain recent and most important findings discussed during the conference including: the occurrence of toxic/invasive cyanobacteria in the context of climate changes; ecology of cyanobacteria with special emphasis on abiotic and biotic factors which regulate their growth and/or toxin production; physiological function, environmental significance and biotechnological application of secondary cyanometabolites; physiology and molecular biology of cyanobacteria; toxicity and harmful effects; risk identification and water management.
