6th Young Microbiologist Symposium on Microbe signalling, Organisation and Pathogenesis

EVENT UPDATE: Due to the global spread of the COVID-19, and in alignment with best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO, and other relevant entities, the YMS2020 organising committee has decided to run the symposium this year as a virtual conference. It will be scheduled for the same dates (26 – 27 August 2020) and will be free of charge. Refunds will be arranged shortly for already registered participants and the committee will be in touch regarding the next steps.

The entire YMS2020 team are working hard to prepare an experience that still provides immersive learning in an online format. Replacing the in-person event with dynamic virtual content will enable us to bring attendees and speakers together in a healthy and productive way.

The 6th Young Microbiologists Symposium on Microbe Signalling, Organisation and Pathogenesis will be held on Highfield Campus, University of Southampton, United Kingdom between 26th – 27th August 2020.

The Young Microbiologists Symposium is intended to bring together graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to discuss their current research. The symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for junior scientists to present their work and receive constructive feedback, to network with other students, post-docs and young Principal Investigators in the field, and to facilitate future collaborations.
The two-day programme will have several keynote addresses, a set of “hot-spot” poster talks and a poster session involving all participants, and opportunities for social interaction.  Offered papers will be selected from poster abstracts and will be presented by students or post-docs. Attendees not giving an oral presentation will present a poster on their work.
