Dear Colleagues,

the Organizers, the International Society for Extremophiles, and the Hellenic National Initiative “Mikrobiokosmos” are pleased to announce the 13th International Congress on Extremophiles (Extremophiles2020). The venue will be held at the Club Hotel Casino Loutraki (https://www.clubhotelloutraki.gr/hotel/en/) from the 13th to 17th of September, 2020, in Loutraki (80 km from Athens, GREECE).
The Extremophiles2020 Congress, aims to bring into light all recent updates of basic and applied research on “life in extreme environments”. As a result, the program will include sessions in many aspects of “extremophilic research” including, among others, origin of life, ecology, astrobiology, molecular biology, physiology and biotechnology, as well as a special workshop on Mikrobiokosmos (the Hellenic Initiative for Microbial Diversity).

In parallel, the organizers aspire for Extremophiles2020 to provide a stimulus for high quality research interactions, to inspire young scientists and students through networking with senior and established scientists, and to pave the way for a bright future in this exciting field.

We kindly invite you to participate in
Extremophiles2020 and enjoy …
