It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 10th International Conference on Cryptococcus and Cryptococcosis (ICCC-10) to take place in FOZ DO IGUAÇU, Brazil, 26 – 30 March 2017. ICCC started in Jerusalem in 1989 with 51 abstracts and 98 attendees. After a long journey of 28 years, every 3 years a unique forum of mycologists interact and share research data devoted to the study of Cryptococcus and cryptococcosis. Passing by Milan, Paris, London, Adelaide, Boston, Nagasaki, Charleston and Amsterdam, now this devoted group will cross the ocean for the first time to a destiny in South America. Foz do Iguaçu is located at the South of Brazil, on the border crossing between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, where there are the world largest waterfalls – Cataratas do Iguaçu – one of nature’s 7 world wonders, located at the border of the Argentinian province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná. The word Iguaçu means “large water” in the Tupi-Guarani etymology. We are looking forward to welcome the world of Cryptococcus, mycologists, microbiologists, physicians and scientists, to South America to discuss the latest findings on the agents of cryptococcosis, their epidemiology, population genetics, new taxonomy, as well as the clinical perspectives in the developed and developing world, disease management, treatment, new diagnostics, immunology, pathophysiology, and molecular biology, including genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics.
