Ielūgums uz 12. Starptautisko Šūnu Bioloģijas kongresu ( . Kongress notiks Prāgā (Čehija), no 21. līdz 25. jūlijam.

Dear members of the Latvian Society of Microbiology,

On behalf of the Czech Society for Cell Biology, I would like to invite you to attend, and present your work at the 12th International Congress of Cell Biology (; Kindly see attachments). The congress, held under the auspices of the International Federation for Cell Biology, will take place 21 - 25 July 2016 at the Prague Congress Center, Prague, Czech Republic.

The aim of the congress is to offer a unique opportunity for sharing selected aspects on the latest evidence-based research findings and applications. Also, the congress is a stimulating forum for professional development and establishing fruitful global and regional collaboration. Newly integrated into the congress program are the academic, scientific, and corporate project development day, the exchange and career fair for students, the industry training centre, and new innovative congress technologies for delegates. More than 80 invited speakers will attend the congress and we expect more than 2000 participants. Our hope is that many young scientists, especially Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows, will attend and share their perspectives. After all, the younger generation represents the promise of the field.

We expect to be able to offer a number of stipends in order to help offset some expenses for a limited number of congress participants. At the same time, we strongly recommend that such individuals investigate possible options at domestic universities/institutions as well as international institutions. In this context, we were able to arrange accommodation in cheap hotels and student dormitories.

The congress theme, “Exploring cellular structure and function” recognizes the key role that cell biology plays in the management of deeper understanding of the tissues and organisms that cells compose. We have done the utmost to create a program in line with the theme.

Prague is a charming city situated in the very heart of Europe. It has a rich history, magnificent architecture, and a unique culture. The region of Prague is an important center of research with several universities and the majority of institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Please join us for the International Congress of Cell Biology 2016 in Prague.

I hope that you will accept our invitation and we look forward to seeing you in July 2016.
