ISHAM 2012, Berlin - Newsletter # 1

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 18th Congress of the International
Society for Human and Animal Mycology 2012 (ISHAM2012) to be held in Berlin, Germany
from June 11-15, 2012.

Please visit:

This will be the largest meeting dealing with human and animal pathogenic fungi ever
organized in Germany and the first time that an ISHAM conference will be in Germany.
We have already more than 300 confirmed invited chairs and speakers from all over the
World – the preliminary program can be found on the congress website.
Already save the congress date now and don’t miss to join this great international
event in the field of Human and Animal Mycology!

Your contribution to the scientific program is highly appreciated:
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION and REGISTRATION will both be opened from the end of
November on the congress website.

Berlin, the German capital, is a world metropole, with a very impressive history and many
great places to visit besides the congress.
Many trendy cafes, musicals, pubs and fancy restaurants are everywhere, serving anything
between “Bratwurst” and “Sushi”, in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Despite its global
importance the city is not expensive at all. The city has an incredible variety of hotels. For
each type there is something suitable. There are a lot of cheap hotels at the central station
or near the convention center – all bookable within the online registration process.
In the immediate vicinity of the convention center, there is the “Museumsinsel”, a cultural
highlight of Berlin with various world-famous opera and concert houses nearby. We are sure
that the location of the ISHAM Congress 2012 is very attractive - for you and your family.

Thank you very much for supporting this important event in mycology!

We would be very pleased to welcome you in Berlin in June 2012!

Warmest regards,

On behalf of the organizing committee:

Markus Ruhnke, Bernhard Hube, Yvonne Gräser, Kathrin Tintelnot
