You will receive an email providing you with the URL and User ID. Please note you will need these login information to go back and edit your
abstract(s) any time before the abstract deadline.
Abstracts are required for all symposia speakers and for the student competitions.
Preparation of Abstracts
The abstract should contain a concise statement of
(i) the problem under investigation, (ii) the experimental methods used, (iii) the essential results obtained, and (iv) a conclusion. Do
not state, for example, that "the results will be discussed". An abstract is not a formal publication and therefore
should not include literature references or grant acknowledgements, etc.
Program and Abstracts of this meeting will be prepared electronically. Abstracts will not be edited in any way.
Thus, every error that appears in the submitted abstract will appear in the printed abstract. If you do not wish to have your abstract published on the web, then please check the appropriate box on the web form.
Abstract text (without title) should be no longer than 3000 characters, including HTML tags.
For the purpose of review and programming only, abstracts will be divided into categories. Indicate the category you have chosen.
Applied and Environmental Microbiology
The scope of interests
in the Applied and Environmental Microbiology section includes two
large fields in microbiology. The Environmental Microbiology field
includes the study of microorganisms found in soils, sediments, water
and air, and their relation to each other and to humans, animals and
plants. The Applied Microbiology field includes microorganisms
involved in all kinds of biotechnology such as found in food science,
agriculture, value-added products from biomass, waste treatment and
bioremediation, pharmacology… People interested in these fields are
Infection and Immunity
The scope of
interests of the Infection and Immunity (II) section includes
microbial pathogenesis, medical and veterinary microbiology,
host-pathogen interactions, immunity to microbial infections, and
the usage and development of vaccines and therapies against
infectious diseases. People whose research involves the study of
bacteria, viruses, and eukaryotic microbes causing infectious
diseases of humans, animals, and/or plants are welcome.
Molecular Genetics and Cellular Microbiology
encompasses all aspects of microbiology that are not commonly
thought of as directly environmental or medically significant. As
such the interests encompass all aspects of molecular and
microbial genetics (gene to genome), physiology and biochemistry
(metabolite to whole organism) that deal with the life of the
organism and its interactions with its surroundings. People who
feel that their interests lie within these parameters are welcome.
This section is only
intended for authors who have been invited by the
symposia organizers as a Speaker.
