We seek to have active participation across the international community of microbiologists, including all career stages and diverse backgrounds. We hope to see many different subdisciplines well represented, including but not limited to systematics, biomedical microbiology, microbial ecology, bioinformatics, taxonomy, microbial systems science, and microbial genomics.
