2022 CSM Annual Conference

71st Annual Conference of the Canadian Society of Microbiologists

Updated: 16 November 2021

 

We are very pleased to invite you to the 71st Annual Conference of the Canadian Society of Microbiologists (CSM 2022) that will be held on the main campus of the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario from June 26-29, 2022. The conference theme this year is ‘Microbes for Life’ and will focus on microbes in health and agriculture. All three sections of the Canadian Society of Microbiologists traditional pillars will be equally represented, including Applied and Environmental Microbiology, Infection and Immunity, and Molecular Genetics and Cellular Microbiology. Our scientific program will highlight multiple aspects of microbiology, with symposium that include novel approaches to drug discovery, food microbiology and food safety, microbial -omics and related technologies, fungal biology and pathogens, phages, microbial transporters and stress responses, the microbiome and parasitic biology and infections.

The Local Organizing Committee of CSM 2022 is excited to host a successful event that will showcase the breadth, diversity and excellence of the Canadian microbiology community. Not only will we have an exceptional scientific program but we will also make sure that your experience in Guelph is worthwhile! The City of Guelph is a vibrant community of over 130,000 with a lively downtown, abundant shopping opportunities and a dynamic cultural core. Surrounded by rolling hills of southwestern Ontario, Guelph is an hour's drive from Toronto and even closer to Hamilton and Kitchener-Waterloo. The city is characterized by many 19th-century limestone buildings including City Hall and the dramatic Church of Our Lady which dominates the city skyline. Specialty and craft shops, coffee houses, microbreweries nightclubs, restaurants featuring flavours of the world, and a nationally known bookstore housing a repertory cinema, café and bistro are all within walking or biking distance from the university.

We look forward to hosting CSM 2022 and to welcome you in Guelph in June. In the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter at @CSM2022_Guelph to get the latest news regarding CSM 71st Annual Conference.
