ISME is hosting a virtual conference #UnityInDiversity on 11 - 12 November 2020. This virtual summit will fill the void left when ISME18 in South Africa had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. #UnityInDiversity will be fully virtual, interactive, and free for everybody to attend. Be prepared for a program of invited talks by top microbial ecologists from around the world! 

Registration will open soon on these pages. 
 

We are excited to have lined up invited speakers from over 15 countries around the world. During the meeting, participants will have opportunities to interact with the invited speakers in small breakout groups. Moreover, after the meeting, the talks will be available to download as teaching resources or for people who missed parts of the meeting. This service will be available to all registered attendees for six weeks after the meeting, and additionally available for members of the ISME society without time limit. 

If you are interested in presenting a poster during our virtual poster session, or giving a talk, please don’t hesitate to submit an abstract here from 14 September 2020 until 12 October 2020.
