INVITATION FROM THE CHAIRMAN


        On behalf of the European Tissue Culture Society and its Czech branch we 
cordially invite you to participate in the 42nd International Congress of the 
Society.        This is the first time that Congress is held in Czech Republic and 
Brno, which is the second largest city of the country and a Metropolis of 
South Moravia, is proud of hosting the participants in this Congress. As you 
probably know, our beautiful city has much to offer in culture, scenery, 
traditional cuisine and unforgettable peaceful atmosphere. It should also be 
remembered that Brno is closely associated with the name of Johann Gregor 
Mendel who lived in Brno and made his major discoveries of the laws of 
heredity in a monastery located close to the Congress venue. Since in the year 
1996 we will mark the 130th anniversary of the first publication of his 
outstanding study results, the Congress has been devoted to Mendel´s 
heritage.       The unique scientific programme with the most prestigious speakers 
at plenary symposia and workshops will cover many fields of basic and applied 
research as well as industrial areas where cell and tissue cultures are 
becoming an indispensable technique. This will be completed by selected poster 
presentations that will highlight recent advances and research developments in 
this multidisciplinary field. In addition, „ad hoc“ organized mini-symposia 
and round-table discussions are scheduled. We heartily invite you to come, to 
meet and to exchange our knowledge. Your registration and presence in Brno 
will be highly appreciated.
