Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.

of acceptance of submissions and at the time of presenting.

STRANDS in YOUR interest area:

As ISME advocates diversity, it is important that we get submissions
for all strands from all regions around the world.

There are 20 strands, so in theory, there could be 10 strands running
in the morning and 10 strands running in the afternoon - so each
strand would have a half day for 4 days - so the plan is to offer 4
half days for each strand. The other half of the day you would be able
to attend other kinds of sessions on other strands/topics, to broaden
their experience.

only need to select ONE key word - simply choose the key word that
most fits your presentation..
