Dear friends and colleagues,
We are pleased to announce the 18th National Congress of the SFM ‘Un monde à explorer’ which will take place at the ‘Couvent des Jacobins’ in Rennes from 4 to 6 October 2023.
The scientific and organising committees, with the help of the sections and working groups, and of the Partners Societies, are already working on a rich and diverse program.
The topics that will be addressed during the congress are:
- Microbial Pathogenesis
- Epidemiology and Population Genomics
- Food Microbiology
- Clinical microbiology
- Biodiversity and evolution
- Microbial Biotechnology
- Pedagogical innovations
- Mycology / Parasitology
- Biosafety and security ‘Parcours Charles Mérieux’
- Risk modeling / AI
Do not forget to note the date of the congress and to block it in your diaries.
President of the SFM
As announced by the President of SFM, Microbes 2023 will be the opportunity for the greatest number of people to approach ‘A world to explore’. And for this exploration of the infinitely small, we will welcome you at the Couvent des Jacobins, a magnificently restored medieval architectural setting in the heart of Rennes, capital of Brittany... and of Microbiology for 3 days! Come and join us in great numbers!
The scientific program will undoubtedly be captivating, but you will also have the possibility, aside from the congress, to escape to enjoy the animation of the old Rennes, its student life and the local specialities. There is something for everyone!
This world to explore is vast and the program will certainly be rich, diverse and exciting. As every year, the quality of the invited speakers and your own oral presentations will contribute to this great program. We will receive your abstracts until summer 2023. The scientific program will therefore be built with you, and the national and local Organizing Committees have taken care to satisfy the wishes you expressed at the end of Microbes 2022. The plenary and parallel sessions will reflect the extent of the microbial world. The Microbes 2023 program will include the highlights of the previous editions, in Nantes and Montpellier, including:
- ‘Carrières en Microbiologie’ forum for young microbiologists
- Thesis and poster prizes
- The voice of industry
- The photo competition
- The educational area
