Introduction

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great honour and pleasure for us to invite you cordially to participate in the 9th Congress on Trends in Medical Mycology (TIMM-9), which will be held in October 11-14, 2019 at Nice-Acropolis Convention Center, Nice, France. TIMM-9 is the 9th in the series of TIMM mycological international meetings organized jointly by the European Confederation of Medical Mycology (ECMM) and the Infectious Diseases Group of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC-IDG).
TIMM has become an important and essential meeting in the field of fungal infections, a forum in which researchers and clinicians from all over the world present the most important advances and research findings in clinical mycology. TIMM-9 will cover all aspects of mycology with special focus on evidence-based and personalized approach to medical mycology, as well as diagnostic-therapeutic integrative efforts in the quest to improve the present knowledge of epidemiology, diagnosis, clinical course and pathophysiological mechanisms of fungal diseases. It would be the place to present recent innovations in medical mycology.
The meeting is designed for medical microbiologists, medical mycologists, heamatologists, oncologists, transplant physicians, intensivists, immunologists, and all those with interest in medical mycology. We expect TIMM-9 to be at least as successful as previous TIMM Congresses, which brought together around 1,000 international delegates from all over the world. Therefore, we would like to invite you to TIMM-9, Nice to enjoy with us excellent science in a stimulating environment.

We look forward to greeting you in Nice!

Jean-Pierre Gangneux, Olivier Lortholary, Oliver A. Cornely and Livio Pagano
