Dear Fellow Scientists,
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.
The theme of this year’s ICTC 11 is:
“Learning from the past to predict the future”
The event also includes excursions and off-site visits with the aim of giving the participants a wider insight about the heritage of Kraków and Małopolska region. The royal capital city of Kraków is the spiritual centre of Poland with rich heritage. Krakow’s Old Town, along with Wawel Castle and the city’s Kazimierz district found their place on the First World Heritage List, created by UNESCO in 1978. The city is home to Polish intellectual and artistic elites and is a magnet for the young. Students and young Polish professionals as well as a growing international community are drawn to the city.
On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to attend the 11th International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria to be held in Kraków, Poland from 5 to 10 May, 2019.
