VII ECOP-ISOP Joint Meeting 5-10 Sept 2015 Seville-Spain

Dear Friends and Colleagues, Dear representatives of FEPS affiliates Societies, 

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the next VII European Congress of Protistology, VII ECOP, which will be held on September 5 to 10, 2015 in Seville (Spain) hosted by the Specialized Group of Protistology (Grupo Especializado de Protistología, GEP) of the Spanish Society of Microbiology (SEM). The Congress will be organized by FEPS (Federation of European Protistological Societies) for the first time in partnership with the International Society of Protistologists (ISOP). Venues of the VII ECOP-ISOP Joint Meeting will be the Hotel-Conference Center Silken Al-Andalus Palace and the Scientific Campus “Reina Mercedes” of the University of Seville. We are very much looking forward to hosting this major scientific event. 

ECOP congresses take place every four years (last ones at Berlin 2011, Germany, and St. Petersburg 2007, Russia) and cover all aspects of the Protistology field. We expect that this first ECOP-ISOP joint congress will be an outstanding meeting point for protistologists worldwide to present their work and discuss their scientific achievements. 

The format of the VII ECOP-ISOP Joint Meeting includes Plenary Lectures, parallel Symposia and Workshops lectures, and Poster presentations. The Congress has been designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in different Protistological fields, from the molecular to the ecological ones. ISOP organized and generously supported two symposia and two plenary lectures.
It is our pleasure to announce that Ross Waller, University of Cambridge (UK), will give the 2015 Hutner Award Lecture at the VII ECOP-ISOP Joint Meeting

Details of the meeting venues, speakers, registration fees, abstracts submission and hotel accommodation are posted on the Congress website www.viiecop.com

A special group rate at the Hotel-Conference Center Silken Al-Andalus Palace has been negotiated for VII ECOP-ISOP Joint Meeting delegates. Further information on hotel room rates and how to book your accommodation is available on the Congress website.

We invite you to check the website regularly for updates. Notices in affiliated journals (European Journal of Protistology and Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology) and Societies websites will also be posted over the coming weeks.

I want to draw your attention to the Annual meeting of the German Society for Protozoology (15.2. - 18.2.2014) organised by the working group of Prof. Dr. Jens Boenigk (University Duisburg-Essen). Based on the good experience of the last year, English will be the official language for all scientific presentations (talks & posters), to make this kind of meeting more attractive for international participants.

 

The Homepage of the Annual Meeting of the German Society of Protozoology is now online and gives a first impression of the program and venue (http://protozoologie-tagung2014.de/index.php).

 

The meeting will be opened with a small workshop on Wednesday afternoon (27.2.1013), entitled: Protists: benefits and risks to human welfare. This workshop will take place in the waste water treatment plant Bottrop. Please find further details on workshops and keynote lectures on the conference homepage ('program').

 

If you finished recently your PhD thesis, please consider applying for the Karl-Gottlieb Grell award (please find details on the homepage as program-> conference prices)

 

Looking forward to meeting you, best wishes,
