International Union of Microbiological Societies Congress The Hybrid Edition 20-22 July 2022 Rotterdam, The Netherland & Online

The first International Congress for Microbiology was held nearly 100 years ago. In 1970 the Executive Committee decided to create three sections covering the fields of Bacteriology, Virology, and Mycology. They became three separate divisions of IUMS with complete autonomy, and with their own International Congresses.

For the first time in years, the three IUMS divisions will come together to hold a joint meeting, IUMS 2022. This will be the hybrid edition, taking place from July 20 to 22, 2022, in person in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, as well as online during the same period of time.

IUMS 2022 aims to bring together medical and non-medical microbiologists from different disciplines around a theme that concerns us all worldwide, namely the ecological disturbances and disruption, including the rapid extinction of many species.

As microbiologists, it is of the utmost importance to understand the role that microorganisms play in this and to find and share potential solutions. With this in mind, the following theme has been chosen for this conference: ‘Microbiological adaptation in times of ecological disturbance and disruption’.
This three-day meeting will include keynote lectures by scientific leaders, bridging sessions and workshops organized by the three IUMS divisions: Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology, Virology, and Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology.

In addition to excellent science, the participants will also be able to enjoy the many attractions of Rotterdam and the Netherlands. Rotterdam is a dynamic metropole, internationally renowned as a ‘gateway to Europe’, well connected by train and various nearby airports; Amsterdam (Schiphol), Rotterdam, Eindhoven, and Brussels.
