Welcome message to the 8th ISAP congress

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 8th Congress of the International Society of Applied Phycology, which will take place from June 16 to 21, 2024, in Porto, Portugal.

The ISAP 2024 conference will have a special focus on “Algae 2030: Challenges and Opportunities”, offering an excellent forum for discussions and establishing new partnerships. Over the course of five days, attendees will have the opportunity to present their most recent work, engage in lively discussions and debates, and forge interdisciplinary consortia towards successful attraction of European and worldwide funding agencies. For students, this conference will provide an invaluable chance to exchange ideas, be inspired and create new networks that will be instrumental in their future.

The ISAP 2024 scientific program will be complemented by a diverse social and cultural program, including excursions to noteworthy locations across Portugal that highlight the numerous uses for both micro- and macroalgae. Register now, submit your abstract and stay tuned for more information at https://isap2024.com/!

We look forward to seeing you in Porto in 2024!
