Welcome

Dear colleagues

After the last successful meeting organized in Budapest by the Department of Aquaculture of Szent István University (Gödöllő, Hungary), we would like to invite you to the next edition of the International Workshop on the Biology of Fish Gametes, which will be held in Algarve, in Portugal, between 17th and 20th September 2013. The meeting will start with a welcome drink on 17th while the scientific program will take place on 18th until 20th, allowing you to spend the weekend afterwards in the region.


The Algarve is the most westerly part of mainland Europe, the last harbouring place before entering the waters of the Atlantic, a region where cultures have mingled since time immemorial.

You have probably heard about the Algarve. A friend may have told you about one of its magnificent beaches, maybe you’ve seen a report about its cuisine, or perhaps you have picked up a brochure. But there is an Algarve that you haven’t seen, tasted or explored before: It’s the Algarve that the local people know and love! Come join us in this workshop, and enjoy this sunny experience!

If you which to plan your visit in advance, you can get more information about what to see in Albufeira and in the Algarve region, visiting the official web site of the touristic region of the Algarve: www.visitalbufeira.pt.

The venue of this event will be the “Grande Real Santa Eulália Resort & Hotel Spa”, close to Albufeira in the heart of the Algarve. Special rates had been negotiated in order to make it acceptable to all the participants. For more information check "Accomodation" tab.

There are also other lodging possibilities in the area, information soon available.

The closest Airport from the venue is in Faro, located just 30 km away from the hotel. In this airport you can easily find several low cost flying solutions, as well as the traditional airline companies. Other flying possibilities include arriving to Lisbon, and take a train to Faro, or flying to Seville (approximately 200 km from Faro) and rent a car at the airport. Transfer services will be organized from Faro airport (with an extra charge): more information soon available.
