It was more than a year ago when we exchanged information on the 13th Free-Living Amoebae International Meeting in may 2009 in Tenerife, Spain. Now, we have the pleasure to send the first announcement of the 14th International Meeting on the Biology and Pathogenicity of Free-living Amoebae (also known as the Irie Amoebae Meeting) to be held from 10th to 15th October 2011 in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
The Meeting is intended to cover all aspects of Amphizoic Free-living Amoebae with pathogenic potential to humans and animals. Scientists, students and people who are concerned with all aspects of the biology and pathogenicity, as well as related research fields of free-living amoebae, are cordially invited to attend the meeting. With all our hearts, we welcome you to Jamaica and hope that you enjoy the research communications as well as our Jamaican culture and kindness.
It will also be our great pleasure if the meeting gives opportunities to see members whose faces are familiar from earlier meetings as well as to make acquaintance of the newcomers. We are looking forward to seeing you soon, in Jamaica.
Dr John F. Lindo
President of FLAM 2011
