welcome at the International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes 2012 website

The Local Organizing Committee is very pleased to announce the 14th International Symposium on Phototrophic Prokaryotes which will be held in Porto, Portugal from 5 to 10 of August, 2012.

The symposium will bring together researchers for five days of scientific meeting, with the aim to cover the current knowledge and the most recent advances of research on phototrophic prokaryotes. The program will focus on the latest scientific achievements in the genetics and physiology of these organisms, also addressing their evolution, ecology, mechanisms of interaction with the environment, and biotechnological applications. In addition, this meeting constitutes an opportunity for a valuable exchange of ideas between scientists with different backgrounds and strengths that can help provide future directions to research works.

Porto is one of the most ancient European cities, classified as World Heritage by UNESCO. Internationally known for its famous Port Wine, the city has other interesting aspects such as landscapes and the historical centre. Besides its welcoming and conservative environment, Porto is also contemporary and artistic. This is shown not only in the streets, architecture, monuments and museums but also in the terraces, restaurants and shopping areas. Together with its beautiful sights, Porto has the capacity to offer excellent accommodation for a largely increasing number of participants.

On behalf of the local organizing committee, Iím very pleased to welcome all the participants of the ISPP 2012.
