Dear colleagues.

It is our pleasure to extend to you an invitation to attend the “11th International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria” (ICTC 11), which will be held in Kraków, Poland, from 5 to 10 May, 2019.

ICTCs conferences have been organized since 1995 and attracted participants from all around the world to discuss progress of their state of the art research. The theme of ICTC 11 is “Learning from the past to predict the future” and its 9 sessions will include the recent and most important findings from the hottest topics in the various thematic sessions, including: the occurrence of toxic/invasive cyanobacteria which will be discussed 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. ICTC 11 will promote new tools, methods, most original findings and hypotheses as well as original ideas presented by new generation of scientists.

All scientists interested in ICTC 11 will find detailed information about the conference at; registration and payment can be made one year before the event. Abstracts for consideration as Oral Presentations and Poster Presentations will be evaluated by the members of the scientific committee on the basis of scientific merit and novelty as well as practical application.

We look forward to welcoming you at ICTC 11, Kraków, Poland!
