WELCOME REMARKS

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the 9th International Symposium on Autophagy (ISA), which will be held from November 3~7, 2019 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Autophagy is one of the most exciting areas in biology. The 1st ISA was organized by Prof. Yoshinori Ohsumi in Okazaki (Japan) in 1997. Like previous ISAs, this symposium will cover a broad range of research topics in autophagy and over 30 prominent invited international speakers will present the latest progress in this exciting and quickly expanding field.
Taipei is Taiwan's largest city as well as its economic, political, and cultural center. From Taipei 101 to the National Palace Museum, from Chinese fine dining to bustling night markets, you can enjoy a mix of the modern and traditional.
I very much hope that you will share my enthusiasm for this meeting. We look forward to welcoming you in Taipei this fall!
