Why Attend

We aim to bring together medical and non-medical microbiologists from different disciplines around the theme “Microbiological adaptation in times of ecological disturbance and disruption”.
During this three-day meeting delegated will attend 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.
Hear from Global Experts

This is your ideal opportunity to hear from the greatest experts in the field. Profit from up-to-date research data, high-quality scientific content, and diverse session types. Learn how the time-honored approaches and the newest techniques in microbiology can be used practically to address a topic that concerns us all worldwide, namely the ecological disturbances and disruption, including the rapid extinction of many species.

Leave Your Footprint

The prospects of microbiology lay in your hands! Play an important part in moving science forward. Present your innovative discoveries and share your scientific conclusions with colleagues across disciplines on a world-class platform, renowned for its high-quality scientific content. Receive useful feedback, international recognition, and give your input into shaping the future of the field.

Congress Topics – IUMS Divisions

The Union is composed of three Divisions, each concerned with a major microbiological science. The Divisions are administratively responsible for Committees, Commissions and Federations (hereafter referred to as COMCOFs) each concerned with a particular aspect of microbiology
UMS consists of three Divisions. Each of them have an Executive Board and they organize their own congresses. BAM and Mycology organize their congresses jointly, while Virology has its own congress.

Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology (MEM) Division

The aims of the Division of Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology are to further the discipline of eukaryotic microbiology, incl. mycology and all branches of research related to it: establish and maintain contact among eukaryote microbiologists by spon­soring international congresses, symposia, conferences and colloquia; distribute information; encourage research and training. The Division has links and a strong collaboration with the International Mycological association (IMA).

Bacteriology & Applied Microbiology (BAM) Division

The aims of the Division of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology are to further bacteriology and related sciences throughout the world in research, education and services

Virology Division

lts aims are to further the discipline of virology and all branches of science related to it; encourage contact among virologists; foster interchange of information through sponsorship of international congresses and symposia.

Rotterdam, Netherlands

The story of Rotterdam, the bombardment and its reconstruction and the inhabitants urge to innovate and shape their city, make Rotterdam an incredibly interesting place. A place where everything seems possible and where so many things are yet to discover. A must visit city for sure!
