ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Conference program

Cultural activities

The local Organizing Committee of the ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting is planning some cultural activities for the participants, on the nights of Tuesday and Wednesday. Besides that, there will be some guided excursions in São Paulo, on Friday afternoon. 

The final planning of those activities will occur only in 2017. One of the possibilities is a music concert at Sala São Paulo, a public concert hall at a very nice building.

One of the guided tours, on Friday afternoon, will be a visit to Instituto Butantan, a research center close to the University of São Paulo. At Instituto Butantan it will be possible to see living snakes and other poisonous animals that are studied by the researchers, for the production of medicinal products.

Another guided tour, on Friday afternoon, will visit the Biblioteca Brasiliana of the University of São Paulo. This library contains more than 50,000 rare books on Brazil, collected by José Mindlin, and donated to the University. At this library it will be possible to browse books on the Brazilian fauna and flora, written by naturalists of the 17th to the 19th century - such as the ones containing the illustrations used in this web site.
