Report As one of the biggest international conferences focused on fungal genetics, ECFG12 offered a unique opportunity to get deep insight into latest research topics. Talks given by leading international experts together with presentations given by conference attendees and poster presentations made a good framework for personal exchange, discussion and development of new ideas especially between young scientists and experienced researchers. Furthermore, taking part at ECFG12 offered a good chance to cultivate contacts to cooperation partners and former co-workers and to get to know specialists in my own field of research. As I was awarded a poster prize in the end of the conference, I'm happy to say that participation in ECFG12 was a full success.
