The local and national committees as well as the Facultat de Biologia at the Universitat de Barcelona would like to invite you to come to the 17th International Congress of Comparative Endocrinology (ICCE 2013).

This congress arrives after the ICCE 2009 in Hong Kong, organized by Dr. Frederick C. Leung, which was an exciting and fruitful meeting.

During these years Comparative Endocrinology has experienced important progress covering multiple disciplines and scientific areas.

The organizers are preparing an attractive meeting full of scientific activities with the intention to favor the exchange of ideas and the participation of young researchers.

The social program organized is intended to show some of the important places from the cultural and historical point of view, surrounding Barcelona.

Barcelona in July offers you a nice weather and many possibilities for touristic visits, from beaches, commercial districts and museums to modernist architecture.
