Annual Conference sessions

If you have an idea for a session and would like it to be included in our next Annual Conference programme, we want to hear from you. The Microbiology Society Annual Conference consists of a number of parallel sessions running for one or two days.

Session suggestions are invited from any field of microbiology. If your suggestion is accepted, the Scientific Conferences Committee (SCC) will appoint experienced session organisers to finalise the session programme.

Please check the list of recently covered topics prior to submission:

Conference Sessions 2009-2018

Up and coming deadlines are as follows:

  • Deadline for Annual Conference sessions in 2020: 19 December 2018
  • Deadline for Annual Conference sessions in 2021: 16 December 2019
