2012 Gordon Research Conference on Marine Microbes
24-29 June 2012, Lucca
The 2012 Gordon Conference on Marine Microbes will present cutting-edge research on several aspects of biodiversity and functioning of this essential part of the biosphere. Including virus, bacteria, and protists and their interactions, this Conference will bring together scientists from different backgrounds and approaches and try to present an integrated way of the marine microbial life. All participants are invited to present a poster on their research and young researchers and graduate students will participate to a contest for the best poster, who will be awarded a prize and allowed to offer a short presentation during a plenary session. The collegial atmosphere of this Conference, with programmed discussion sessions as well as opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an avenue for scientists from different disciplines to brainstorm and promotes cross-disciplinary collaborations in the various research areas represented. The Marine Microbes Gordon Research Conference will be held in conjunction with the Marine Microbes Gordon Research Seminar. Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Applications for this meeting must be submitted by May 27, 2012.
