ISZB/Zinc-Net Meeting June 18th/22nd, Pyla, Cyprus

We are delighted to announce that the registration for the ISZB/Zinc-Net meeting is now open.  We have kept the programme as close as possible to the original that was planned for the Istanbul 2016 meeting, with some modifications.  Since our Zinc-Net COST Action funding comes to an end in October 2017, this will be the final meeting for network, therefore we have added a symposium on Sunday 18th June, to celebrate the achievements of the Network during the 4 years it has been active.

Details of the programme, accommodation and meeting registration form can be found at:


We are inviting abstracts for poster presentations (all participants), and for oral presentations in the student symposium (students only).

The meeting will take place at the UCLan Campus in Cyprus, which is a modern building with excellent conference facilities (Lecture theatres, meeting rooms and Wi-Fi connections throughout).  It is located in Pyla, a 15 minute drive from Larnaca where there the hotel accommodation can be found.  We would encourage early booking of the accommodation because it is holiday season in Cyprus and the hotels get booked up very quickly!  There is good social programme planned too, with a Gala dinner at the fort in Larnaca, which is included in your registration fee.

We look forward to welcoming you to Cyprus in June 2017, and to a very successful and productive meeting.

Kind regards,

Prof. Nicola Lowe (Chair of Zinc-Net Cost ActionTD1304 Management Committee)

Prof. Michal Hershfinkel (President of ISZB)

Prof. Belma Turan (Scientific Programme Lead)
