I am delighted to invite you to attend the International Microbiology Congresses of the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS). On behalf of the National Organizing Committee, I look forward to welcoming you in Montréal, Canada, from July 27 to August 1, 2014.
For the 14th International Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology, the 14th International Congress of Mycology and the 16th International Congress of Virology, we wish to promote international sharing, cooperation and open discussions on recent advances and perspectives in microbiology research. These congresses bring together the largest, most comprehensive group of microbiology researchers at a single gathering. This world class event draws upon the expertise and experience of organizations and countries from around the globe.
Special efforts will be made to attract as many young scientists as possible, both from developed and developing countries.
Montréal is an ideal venue for such a gathering, a cultured centre of learning and commerce, vastly experienced in welcoming the world. Being the world’s second-largest French-speaking city, it is a land of hospitality and openness.
The science, the special events planned by the Organizing Committee, and the city itself will make this meeting an unforgettable experience that you will find both stimulating and entertaining. Plan to join us at what will be a memorable international event. This will indeed be a rendez-vous not to be missed!
President of Congresses
