These one-day workshops on Sunday, February 25, 2018 will bring together scientists to share scientific advances on specific fungal species or topics. Following the workshops, to be held at the main campus, Technion, Haifa, participants can join the welcome reception of the main meeting.

The following workshops are open for registration. Opening of a workshop may be contingent on a sufficient number of registrants.

To join a workshop: Choose your workshop and proceed to the registration page to register.
