11th International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria (ICTC11)

May 5, 2019 - May 9, 2019

International Conference on Toxic Cyanobacteria (ICTC) is a periodic summit of an international community focusing on the study of cyanotoxins and toxic cyanobacteria. Poland was chosen as the venue of the next ICTC by the participants of the conference in Wuhan in 2016. The five-day event includes interactive sessions and lively discussion panels which promote active scientific exchange and communication between scientists and students. This event will feature recent findings from leading academic experts in the field in the form of lectures and posters. Participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience from the experts on the subject and to network with other enthusiasts.

The theme of this year’s ICTC 11 is:
“Learning from the past to predict the future”

  • Detection, identification and diversity of toxic/invasive cyanobacteria
  • Toxic cyanobacteria in the context of climate changes
  • Ecology of cyanobacteria, abiotic and biotic factors in the regulation of cyanobacterial growth and/or toxin production
  • Secondary cyanometabolites – structure, biosynthesis, physiological function, environmental significance and biotechnological application
  • Cell physiology and molecular biology of cyanobacteria
  • Toxicity and harmful effects of cyanobacteria and their metabolites
  • Risk identification, water management and toxin removal
  • New tools, new methods, most original findings and hypotheses
  • New generation of scientists – fresh view and original ideas (session dedicated to participants up to 35)
