6th Central European Summer Course on Mycology: Biology of pathogenic fungi and the 3rd Rising Stars in Mycology Workshops

Meeting's Aim and Scope:
It is our great pleasure to announce that we have come to organize the next Central
European Summer Course on Mycology (www.cesc.hu), which will once again take place in
Szeged, Hungary, from 06 – 11, July 2018. Throughout the years, the conference series
became more and more successful thanks to both the invited lecturers and the interactive
students. Therefore, next year, we would like to maintain the high quality and content of this
event, thus we’d like apply for a financial support to be able to celebrate the 10th years
anniversary of our course.
The aim of the project is to provide a summer school for Ph.D. students and young scientists
mainly from eastern and central European regions with the participation of lecturers
specialized on the field of host-pathogen interactions, diagnostics, molecular biology,
genetics and genomics of pathogenic fungal species. The series of the CESC courses is a
true success story and we received numerous positive comments from attendees. In 2014
we invented a new satellite event the 1st Rising Stars in Mycology Workshop, where young
and successful scientist from the field had the opportunity to discuss about their experience
of career development, and showed their recent scientific results. Since this workshop was a
great success we included this workshop to the program of the summer school and
complemented the program with soft-skill lectures about interesting topics such as: “Women
in Science”, Grant Writing and Reviewing”, “Ethics in Science” etc.
