Myco RiseUp Conference

We would like to invite you to participate in the 3rd edition of MycoRise Up! Youth in Mycology Conference initiated by the Polish Mycological Society. It will take place in Warsaw between 27th and 29th of May 2022. The conference is co-organized by students from the Faculty of Biology (University of Warsaw), Botanical Garden (University of Warsaw), the Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics Polish Academy of Sciences, and the Biology of Microorganisms Students’ Society.

Main goal of the conference is to exchange mycological knowledge between young researchers such as undergraduate, masters, and PhD students. We guarantee a non-judgmental atmosphere with a possibility to learn from others (fellow students and more senior researchers from the scientific committee). We only accept active participants, i.e. you have to present your research in one of the following ways:

  • 12 minute talk (with additional 3 minutes of discussion)
  • scientific poster (A0, needs to be printed by the participant)

The scope of the conference is very broad – we invite all research that can be classified as mycology. We accept original research, as well as literature reviews. Scientific sessions will be announced once we identify the interests of participants via registration form.
