Since most of us will be accommodated at one place, we expect lively discussions during the conference and evenings. Young scientists are invited to join a pre-conference workshop on the biology and determination of protists on Tuesday. The workshop will take place at the Biocenter of the University of Cologne.


The official conference language will be English. Prizes for the best poster and the best student talk will be awarded at the social evening. Short excursions to the Cologne Cathedral and town center are planned.


We are very much looking forward to your participation and scientific contribution, and welcome you heartly to Cologne!
