Welcome

Extensive research on yeasts in former Czechoslovakia at the beginning of 60ties and succesful organization of the first international symposium on yeasts in Smolenice led to the estabilishement of the Czechoslovak Commision on Yeasts of the Czechoslovak Society for Microbiology, in 1964. Since the beginning, the Commission has focused on the organization of Annual Conferences on Yeasts (ACY), mainly for Slovak and Czech researchers from various research institutions, universities and industry. However, during the years, the conferences have transferred into international meetings of highly qualified scientists in the fields of molecular and cell biology of yeast, biotechnology of yeast, and yeast diversity and interactions.

The conference is regularly held in the Congress Centre of the Slovak Academy of Sciences in the Smolenice castle, located in Small Carpathians (about 50 km from the capital city Bratislava). Splendid interiors of the castle and beautiful surrounding nature contribute to relaxing atmosphere of the meetings and provide a lot of space for informal and stimulatory discussions of scientists. Thanks to the international speakers, friendly atmosphere and the unique location, the yeast conference is also interesting for students and young scientists.

The 46th Annual Conference on Yeasts (ACY), which is organized this year, can be considered as one of the oldest scientific events in Slovakia and in Europe.

We hope that you will enjoy the time at the conference and find it beneficial to you.
