Welcome Message

On behalf of the organizing committee for Asian Mycological Congress 2023 (AMC2023) it is with great honor that I graciously welcome you all to AMC2023 in Busan, Korea from October 10 - 13, 2023. The congress is titled Fungal World and Its Bioexploitation – in all areas of basic and applied mycology.

It is a pleasure to note that this congress will cover the widest range of interesting topics related to all theoretical and practical aspects of mycology, as it is mentioned in the theme: Fungal Systematics and diversity, Aquatic and Marine Fungi, Mushroom Biology, Mycovirus, Genetics and Molecular Biology, Physiology and Biochemistry, Fungal Metabolites, Food Mycology and Safety, Bioremediation, and Omics related fields, just to mention a few.

It is my hope that the AMC 2023 will be able to achieve its objective in promoting the development of mycology through various activities associated with mycological education, training, research, and service in countries and regions within Asia. In addition, we hope to provide all participants an opportunity to gain up-to-date information and advance their knowledge on mycology.

We have also organized several social programs to enrich, entertain, and refresh the minds of all of you. There will be auctions, fungus foray, art performances as well as tour programs to enjoy the beautiful port city, Busan.

I hope that your participation will be as meaningful and rewarding to all of you as it is to us. I wish you a very productive conference with exciting and encouraging discussions and exchange of knowledge so that together we can advance towards a future of groundbreaking knowledge, research, and technology for humanity.

I wish you all the best and hope to see you in Busan, Korea in 2023.
