Welcome to the Dicty2020 website
This year, the International Dictyostelium meeting will be held in the town of Stirling, set in the beautiful southern highlands of Scotland in the UK.
The meeting will be held at the Stirling Court hotel at the University of Stirling, starting with a plenary lecture on the evening of Sunday 9th August, and finishing after breakfast on Thursday 13th.
Sticking with tradition, we have invited two exciting non-Dicty Plenary speakers and are pleased to announce talks from: Alfonso Martinez Arias on developmental self organisation and Ewa Paluch on the mechanobiology of cell shape and migration (both from Cambridge University)
All other talks will be selected from abstracts, details of which can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Jason, Jonathan, Robert, Pete and Peggy
