Marine Microbes (GRS): 30 June - 1 July 2018, Italy
The Gordon Research Seminar on Marine Microbes 2018 will focus on “Marine Microbial Strategies for Survival in a Changing Environment”. This seminar will be held on 30 June-1 July 2018 at Lucca (Barga), Italy.
In marine systems, communities of microscopic organisms interact with one another at micrometer scales, yet these processes influence the global environment. Marine microbiologists probe these dynamic systems from the micro to the macro. Together, we synthesize these diverse datasets and collaborate across disciplines to better understand the dynamics of our planet. Marine microbiology encapsulates the biotic, abiotic and human-induced factors that affect marine microbes—at small and large spatial scales, and over short and long time frames.
The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by March 30, 2018. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster.
Application Deadline: 2 June 2018
