Microbial Ecology: From Individuals to Ecosystems
The Microbial Ecology Special Interest Groups launch event!
Cost: Free to all BES members
As part of the launch of the new Microbial Ecology SIG, we will be holding a two-day event at the University of Salford.
Day 1: Talks that cover the diverse ways that microbes influence the ecology of organisms and ecosystems, including a plenary lecture from Prof. Alan McCarthy from the University of Liverpool.
Day 2: Includes a “Horizon Scanning Workshop” which, aims to identify the next big questions in microbial ecology (similar to previous events run by Prof. Bill Sutherland). This will require delegates to submit 10-20 questions relating to their field before the event, which will then be discussed at Salford and reduced to a number of leading and specific research questions.
The process and results of this workshop will then be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal for publication, with all contributors listed as authors. Please note, as the event is free to all BES members, it is a requirement of attendance that you contribute to this process before and during the workshop.
