  1. As a recent scholar of lichens, this would be my first lichenology symposium. I am very interested in attending and welcome periodic updates. Thank you!

    Kind regards,

    • I think this is a good idea and perhaps such concessions could be compensated by some international development funds. On the other hand, our lowest fees, such as student early bird, are already compensated by external funding and cover less than 50% of real underlying costs.

  2. Looks like a great congress! However, I hope that you come up with some daily fee especially for Finns who would like to join for some days but can´t make it for the whole week. 400€ for one or two days is quite a bit.

    • Thanks – surely this is going to be the greatest IAL symposium ever. 😉

      Regarding partial payments and day tickets the problem is that nobody really can keep eye on whether these are used in a proper manner. So we decided to keep things simple. Also we would like to encourage ppl to attend the whole symposium as there are so many interesting presentations every day.

  3. Dear Sir/Madam,

    We (my wife -AIDA GARCIA GRUEZO, accompanying person) are planning to attend the IAL8 Congress. However, we need to apply for a Schengen visa to Finland and to be able to do this, we need an official invitation (pdf copy) to IAL8 Congress as one of the supporting documents. May I know if you can provide us the requested document on a short notice? My institutional address is Dr. William Sm. Gruezo, Plant Biology Division, Institute of Biological Sciences, CAS, University of the Philippine Los Banos, College 4031, Laguna, Philippines. By the way, I am a Lifetime Member of IAL (as far as I can remember).
    We would appreciate if you would give this request a top priority due to time constraint in the application for travel visa.
    Thank you very much, indeed!

    Truly yours,

    William Sm. Gruezo, PhD
    Professor 12
