It is a pleasure to invite you to attend the 4th meeting of the PAMMS to be held at the Assiut University Conference Centre (AUCC), Administration Building, Assiut, Egypt. The conference will provide medical mycologists from Africa with a unique opportunity to present their latest research findings, to foster collaboration and to establish long-term relations between scientists from Africa and abroad. A PAMMS General Meeting will be held to discuss various updates on Medical Mycology Studies. Invited speakers from the African continent and speakers from outside Africa, working on topics concerning African fungi will participate in the meeting. Poster presentations will also form an important part of the programme. In addition to the stimulating scientific programme planned for PAMMS 2011, a 3-day workshop on Medical Mycology is planned. The Assiut University Mycological Centre (AUMC) is ideal for the purpose of the workshop. Several cultures of medically important moulds and yeasts will be microscopically examined during the practical sessions of the workshop. Other diagnostic criteria (biochemical, molecular or sensitivity to antifungal agents) will also be studied. Special focus will be given to fungal species commonly reported from medical cases in African countries.
