Dear Colleagues,

We are very excited to invite you to join the first ISHAM Asia Congress, the seminal event bringing worldwide developments in medical mycology to you in Asia Pacific.


ISHAM Asia 2021, organized jointly by ISHAM and ISHAM’s Asia Fungal Working Group, is the event you’ve been waiting for: an extraordinary assembly of the world’s leading experts from 18 countries; state-of-the-art mycology updates put into Asia-Pacific context; and an international arena for you to showcase your research. You will also have wonderful opportunities to interact with highly reputed clinicians and medical mycologists during the congress.


The program, which consists of pre-congress workshops and a 2.5-day main congress, provides the latest information delivered through a variety of sessions including: plenary, multi-stream specialty update symposia, meet the expert, challenging clinical cases, and oral and poster presentations. There will be something of interest for everyone.


ISHAM Asia 2021 is an unmissable opportunity for all those interested and working in the diagnosis and management of fungal infections, from specialist physicians and laboratory professionals to researchers and students.


We look forward to welcoming you to Bangkok, the perfect place for you to share knowledge with international peers, and to experience the unique cultural and culinary delights of the Land of Smiles!
