Prof Don Cowan, LOC Chairman:


Welcome to Thermophiles-2017 which will be hosted in South Africa! This meeting will provide an excellent platform for students and scientists to showcase world-class research, against the backdrop of one of the most charismatic environments on earth. We aim to provide opportunities for engagement, collaboration, knowledge exchange and the development of new ideas, while providing a relaxed atmosphere for social interaction and the appreciation of the unique Kruger National Park environment and its biodiversity.
