On behalf of the organizers - the International Commission on Yeasts (ICY), BIOECOGEN and the Yeast Commision of the Czechoslovak Society for Microbiology, we cordially invite you to the 30th International Specialized Symposium on Yeast that will be held from June 18th to 22nd, 2013 in Stara Lesna (High Tatras), Slovakia. For its 30th anniversary, the ISSY returns to the country where the 1st ISSY was held in Smolenice castle in 1971. The theme of the symposium „Cell Surface and Organelles in Yeasts: from Basics to Applications“ reflects the traditionally strong areas of yeast research in Central Europe. The program of the 30th ISSY will comprise plenary lectures, keynote lectures, oral presentations selected from abstracts, and poster sessions covering all aspects of membrane and cell surface research including biotechnological and medical aspects. Latest results and the current technological developments in these fields will be presented and discussed. Conference center of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in Stara Lesna is located at the foothills of the magnificent High Tatras. Certainly, the beauty of the surrounding nature and the rich cultural heritage of the region will provide an excellent opportunity for scientific presentations and discussions as well as for the informal encounters.

Welcome to Slovakia with its beautiful nature, rich culture and history!

Ivan Hapala and Peter Griac (co-chairs of the 30th ISSY)
