World Microbe Forum, a collaboration between the American Society for Microbiology (ASM), Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS), and several other societies, is breaking barriers to sharing science and addressing the most pressing challenges facing humankind today. That's why this year, ASM Microbe and FEMS Congress 2021 will be part of this unique event.
Explore the hottest topics in microbiology – from new infectious pathogens like SARS-CoV-2, antimicrobial resistance and the role of microbes in climate change, to agriculture and food microbiology, and synthetic and applied microbiology – discussed like never before, and offering unparalleled access to the latest innovative research across global perspectives.
Unite the microbial sciences community worldwide to share cutting-edge science.
This meeting will bring active researchers, industry professionals, undergraduate, postgraduate students, educators, and leaders in a digital forum on a global stage, like never before. This is an opportunity to showcase how microbial sciences are essential to the health and wellbeing of humankind. In addition, satellite events and sessions will extend the conversation to policy makers and members of the public.
Live-stream close to your time zone.
Because of programming happening across the globe, attendees can access hundreds of sessions and activities close to their time zone, with single registration. The cutting-edge scientific program will increase the microbial sciences footprint significantly. In addition, recorded sessions which will be available after the meeting, allowing attendees to catch up or review content they missed.
Lower barriers of entry that level the playing field.
The virtual format, including both live and recorded access to events and sessions, overrides the constraints of time and space typical of physical meetings. The virtual event allows easier access, supporting equity and inclusion.
Provide more content in your research area and related fields.
With fewer constraints of time and space, it will be possible to have more programming in specific areas of microbiology, increasing the opportunity for everyone to find rich content in their sub-field. This also allows more high-profile speakers, more opportunities for trainees to present, and more joint sessions covering new and emerging topics.
Allow for meaningful connections with peers.
The versatile and innovative digital platform will allow for informal digital breakout rooms and casual interactions among participants.
