The symposium aims at highlighting the most recent developments in the field of viruses of microbes.

The tentative programme is available here.

Key topics

  • Fundamental research in phage ecology and biology
  • Present and future applications of phages

We encourage participants to submit abstracts relating to these topics. All submissions will be reviewed by the scientific committee and will be selected for an oral or poster presentation. Junior researchers (PhD students) are particularly invited to apply for a 3 min pitch talk to highlight the key message of their poster.

BSVoM, together with its sponsors, is pleased to award prizes for the best poster and the best pitch talk. Please note that only BSVoM members are eligible for these awards.
