EC Forum Co-Chairing Scheme
This scheme offers EC Forum members an insightful professional development opportunity to learn about being a session chair from more experienced colleagues. Co-Chairs will receive a letter of thanks from the EC Forum Executive Committee confirming that they participated in the Co-Chairing Scheme and will be recognised in the conference programme.
All EC Forum members are eligible to apply. Applications should be made when submitting an abstract to the Annual Conference via Oxford Abstracts. All applications will be reviewed by the Society's Divisions and successful Co-Chairs will be introduced to the relevant session Chair.
To be considered for the scheme, visit the Annual Conference webpage.
Annual Conference is the Society’s flagship event. The Conference brings together scientists who work in microbiology and provides a comprehensive overview of current microbiological research and discoveries. The event takes place over the course of a week each April at one of the UK or Ireland’s major convention centres and is designed to maximise opportunities for networking and the formation of new collaborations.
