The PYFF conferences are unique in bringing together, every 3 years, researchers
interested in the physiology of yeasts and filamentous fungi, under the auspices
of the EFB Microbial Physiology Section. After the success of the five previous meetings in Middelfart (2001), Anglet (2004), Helsinki
(2007), Rotterdam (2010), and Montpelier (2013), the Portuguese community dedicated to the
this topic is looking forward to receiving you in Lisbon, from the 11th to the 14th of July 2016, for PYFF6.
PYFF6 will be hosted by Instituto Superior Técnico, the engineering,
science and technology school of the University of Lisbon, and will take place at the Alameda campus of this university, located right in the city centre.
Lisbon is the most western of Europe's capital cities and one of the most visited cities in the world, offering a cosmopolitan environment, where ancient neighborhoods meet modern life style.
Founded more than 2000 years ago, Lisbon is further a cultural, financial and academic centre, aspects of this city that the participants will have the opportunity to enjoy.
An exciting event is being planned focused on the modern genome-wide approaches
that are unveiling fascinating aspects of the physiology of yeasts and
filamentous fungi, boosting the understanding of these systems, envisaging their
application in biotechnology or the control of their pathogenic activity. Young
researchers are specifically encouraged to participate, to present their data
and to exchange ideas during the conference. With the support of the Scientific
Committee composed of renowned experts in the Physiology of Yeasts and
Filamentous Fungi and of the highly active international community working in
the field, the Organizing Committee is committed to organize a successful and
productive conference that contributes to reinforce or to initiate collaborative
links between researchers in academia, industry, and the clinic, and show the
vitality of their research and whatís new in area of physiological genomics of
yeasts and filamentous fungi and on how it can be applied.
Submission of abstracts for poster presentation and registration in the meeting
is still open till May the 21st. Donít miss the opportunity to participate in
this exciting event!
