Dear colleagues,

It gives us great pleasure to announce Pichia 2012!
The upcoming Pichia 2012 conference will take place from February 29 to March 3, 2012 in Alpbach, Austria.

In keeping with Pichia 2009, which was held in charming surroundings in Tucson (AZ), the inspiring and relaxed alpine atmosphere of Alpbach in the Austrian Tyrol has been chosen for the next conference venue. This mountain resort, the home village of Nobel Laureate Erwin Schrödinger, is the ideal setting in which to present the latest exciting research on and applications for Pichia.

We expect up to 150 participants from universities, research institutes and companies all over the world, providing an excellent opportunity for participants to exchange ideas on a global basis.

The conference starts on Wednesday, February 29 at 5p.m. and finishes on Saturday, March 3 at 1p.m.

Immediately before the conference (February 26 - 29), a hands-on Pichia laboratory course "From Idea to Protein Products" will be held in Graz, Austria. Transfer from Graz to Alpbach will be provided.

With best regards,
Toni Glieder & Karin Kovar
on behalf of the Organizational Committee
