Dear fellow microbiologists and colleagues,
On behalf of the National Organizing Committee and the Federation of Korean Microbiological Societies (FKMS), I would like to welcome the delegates from all over the world to the IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea which will take place 12-16 October, 2020 in Daejeon, Korea. Being the hub of advanced science and technology in Korea with its modern infrastructure and beautiful surroundings, Daejeon is truly an ideal venue for the IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea.
The IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea incorporates three major international congresses: the 16th International Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology, the 16th International Congress of Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology and the 18th International Congress of Virology. These separate congresses will be connecting each other with all current issues and different topics of microbiology in the Bridging Sessions.
This event will be truly an international arena for the exchange of knowledge and ideas among professionals from academia, clinical practice, industry and research institutions to foster cross-discipline collaboration in the spirit of sharing. The knowledge, information and experience will be shared by participants to make the events the largest and most comprehensive gathering of global microbiological community.
We are ready and in good preparation to host the most successful IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea, having acquired the full supports of related institutions which include Korea’s Central and Daejeon Metropolitan City Governments, all of 5 member societies of FKMS, academia and companies in the private sector.
