ASM Microbe 2022 (https://asm.org/Events
) will be held on June 9-13, 2022 in Washington, DC. This is the biggest microbiology conference in the World, and we strongly believe that there should be a session dedicated to phage therapy, which we would like to propose to ASM. The deadline for Session Proposal submissions is August 5th, 2021.
We would therefore like your urgent feedback by July 29th, 2021, to help us prepare the proposal. Please let us know if you are aware of anyone else proposing a phage session. We need suggestions for speakers, topics or any other ideas that could help with the application and the session. We would also like to hear from anyone interested in helping to organize the session.
Session formats can be found here: https://asm.org/Events/ASM-Microbe/Scientific-Program-1
. We suggest that either an in-depth symposium (2 hours, 2 invited speakers and 3-4 oral abstract presentations) or mini-conference (held on the Thursday prior to the start of the meeting. 3.5 hours long, up to 4 speakers) are the most suitable formats.
ASM Microbe offers reduced registration and limited travel support to speakers presenting in cross-track symposia, in-depth symposia, track hubs, courses and workshops. Mini-conference speakers will be offered reduced registration.
We welcome and appreciate all suggestions and offers of assistance.
