The 35th International Specialised Symposium on Yeasts (ISSY35) ‘Yeast Cornucopia: Yeast for health and wellbeing’ will be organised under the auspices of the International Commission on Yeasts, with support from the Microbiology Society, took place in Antalya, Turkey in 21-25 October 2019.
The aim of ISSY35 is to bring together academic and postdoctoral researchers, industry scientists and graduate students working in the field of yeast biodiversity and biotechnology to discuss the latest developments in fundamental yeast research linked to biotechnological applications.
This is the first time ISSY is being held in Turkey. A broad international and regional scientific organizing committee is behind this important meeting. The ISSY series are very international meetings and we expect to attract around 250 delegates from all over the world. As an example, previous ISSY meeting in Cork, Ireland, attracted 285 delegates (from 37 countries), with their diversity indicating the global reach and relevance of yeast research in society. The 5 inhabited continents were well represented: Europe 219; North America 27; Asia 18; South America 15, Africa 6) and there was strong private sector participation: 46 delegates from 31 different companies. These headline numbers demonstrate both that yeast research is alive and well across the globe, and that this research has fundamental and biotechnological dimensions to it.
ISSY35 will take place in the beautiful city of Antalya, on the South of Turkey; one of the tourism capitals of Europe. There are 2 international airports with direct flights over 50 capitals in the World and two planes per hour to and from Istanbul. Symposium Hotel is 5 Star, All-inclusive, Amara Premier Palace Hotel. There will be transfer opportunities from airports to hotel for our sponsors.
