The 60th Anniversary Of The International Congress Of Protistology Returned To Prague
At the turn of July and August, the OREA Hotel Pyramida Prague hosted the 15th International Congress of Protistology.
The research of protists has a long tradition in the Czech Republic as the first congress of the ICOP series took place in Prague in 1957. We are happy that after 60 years the congress came back to place where it all began.
The congress focused on the diversity of free-living heterotrophic protists and algae, protists as parasites, the biochemistry and ecology of protists, and many others. Almost 500 specialists from around the world attended this great event.
The six-day program also included the 2017 Annual Meeting of the International Society of Protistologists (ISOP) which entailed the Hutner Lectures, the Past President´s speech address, a members meeting, and a symposia.
The congress organizer was the International Society of Protistology.
