More than 110 registered participants from all continents got together for more than 5 days of interesting and intense discussions about Subterranean Biology, with 5 pre-conference workshops, and a visit to a cave Lab. What else can be more interesting, right?

I express my deep gratitude to my conference co-chair, as well as to all the staff on the organisation and secretariat for facilitating everything, and permitting a smooth and pleasant conference until the very end.
It worth pointing out that there was a age difference between the youngest and oldest conference participant of 68 years!
To all colleagues and students: thank you so much for the great conference!
