Rome from July 28 to August 2, 2019: www.ecop2019.org
The VIII ECOP will be organized for the second time as a joint meeting in partnership with the International Society of Protistologists (ISOP).
Every four-years ECOP represents the cenacle of the European protistological community, organized by the European Federation of Protistological Societies (FEPS). Many European Societies are also affiliated to the international Society and, by the joining of the ISOP annual meeting, an increase in worldwide audience and participation is guaranteed.
All topics of Protistology will be addressed in a comprehensive overview of the latest researches in compliance with the most recent and interesting environmental and health issues. The Congress will develop in Plenary Lectures, Symposia, Parallel Oral Sessions, Poster Sessions, and Workshops. Awards and student travel grants will be announced to promote the PhD Students and Young Post-doctors participation in all sessions. Protistology has an ancient tradition in Italy and the first FEPS meeting took place in S. Benedetto (Marche Region) in 2003 joined with the European Conference of Ciliate Biology.
The Congress will be held in Rome at the Congress Center Crowne Plaza St. Peter’s Hotel Via Aurelia Antica 415, (www.crowneplaza.com/rome-stpeters) that is a large single venue located near the St. Peter Basilica in Rome, not so far from the ancient center.
