Welcome to the 3rd LPMO Symposium

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 3rd LPMO Symposium to be held in Oslo, Norway from November 9-11, 2022. The symposium will be held at the Soria Moria Hotel, nestled on a hillside overlooking Oslo and the Oslo fjord. The hotel is easily accessible by public transport from Oslo Gardermoen Airport.

We look forward to meeting in person again and discussing the advances of the LPMO field! We will of course continuously monitor the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and its potential consequences for travel, social interactions etc. that may impact the symposium plans.

We are currently working on assembling a program of plenary speakers that reflects the recent development in the field. Registration will open in March along with announcement of the program.
