The organizing committee of the 9th Congress of the Asociación Ibérica de Endocrinología Comparada (AIEC), as well as the Facultat de Biologia at the Universitat de Barcelona, and the President of the AIEC would like to invite all the members of this Society and all the scientists interested in the topic to come to the 9th Congress of the AIEC.

The Congress will be hosted at the Faculty of Biology the 13th and 14th July 2013.

After the very successful meeting of 8th AIEC-2011 celebrated in Madrid and organized by Dr. Mª Jesus Delgado, this new edition of the AIEC Congress arrives jointly with the 17th International Congress of Comparative Endocrinology (ICCE 2013) which will take place the following days after the 9th AIEC at the same venue. We hope that this combination will be a fantastic opportunity for scientists to participate in 9th Congress of the AIEC.

The organizers are preparing an interesting scientific program with the intention to favor the exchange of ideas, and trying to increase the participation of young scientists as well as female researchers.

Barcelona is an attractive city that offers many opportunities for touristic visits based on its heritage, culture and gastronomy.
