The MiCom conference consists of five chaired sessions, each containing two outstanding keynote lectures and a number of selected student talks. MiCom 2021 will be held as an online conference and comprises five core themes that capture key aspects of microbial communication:

  • The Chemical Ecology session focuses on the cross-talk between microorganisms and their living environment using chemical signals. Research includes the co-evolution within the communicating networks and signalling processes between individual entities.
  • The Environment session examines strategies used by microorganisms in colonizing the environment, which are of importance for microbial fitness and the formation of interactive communities. It also looks at microbial applications to the environment.
  • The Natural Products session aims to provide innovative ideas for mining of novel metabolites and correlated synthetic pathways from microorganisms, to engineer microbes as cell factories for mass production of valuable compounds, and even to contribute to drug discovery.
  • The Pathogenesis session focuses on microbial pathogenicity and virulence, examples include the molecular basis of damage to host immunity, and an overview of the host response to pathogen invasion.
  • The Systems Biology session aims to show the way the study of organisms, encompassing the examination of its cellular structure and dynamics as a whole, provides an improved overview of its functionalities.

There will be also plenty of room for discussions beside the keynote presentation such as PhD talks, Workshops and round tables. Just check out the program en of the conference.

Registration is open until March 21, 2021. If you want to paticipate in the PhD talks, please submit your talk abstract until February 22nd, 2021!
