SASM2013



SASM2013 will take place from 24-27 November 2013 at Forever Resorts Warmbaths (http://www.foreverwarmbaths.co.za/). Please see our website www.sasm.org.za (CONGRESSES>SASM2013) for details, abstract submission and registration. The theme for SASM2013 is “From Africa to the World: Trending Microbiology”. The Organizing Committee wants to put together “trendy”, modern programme, yet taking into account the traditional tracks at our previous conferences: Environmental Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Industrial Microbiology, Virology, Medical Microbiology, Plant Microbiology, Food Microbiology, and Virology. In order to achieve this, we would like to involve all SASM members at South African Universities, Research Institutions and various Industries and Service providers.


How? We want you to suggest and chair a session!

Why?
This is your opportunity to showcase a new and emerging research field!

You will be required to submit a title and short exposé of the session and tell us why this research field deserves a special platform. Each session consists of three oral presentations, so we also ask you to suggest three speakers, including or excluding yourself, and the titles of their presentations. Please contact Karl Rumbold on

The Organizing Committee will choose the best sessions from all suggestions based on merit and programme suitability.

Being able to
attract international speakers will always be a reflection of an excellent conference. However, as you might have guessed knowing previous SASM conferences, the SASM2013 budget for international speakers is VERY constrained, too. We would therefore like to ask all members, who are engaging in international research collaborations such as NRF bilateral programmes, EU-FP7, U.S. PEER etc. in 2013, to consider inviting their research partners to SASM2013. In many cases there will be an opportunity for your research partners to give a keynote address at our conference.  There is plenty of space available at the conference venue to organize a breakaway session for you and your research partner and a limited number of delegates, if you wish to do so.
