Congress of Baltic Microbiologists


Dear colleagues,  It is our pleasure to invite you to the 1st Congress of Baltic Microbiologists (CBM 2012), which will take place in Riga on 31 October – 4 November, 2012. The Congress will be organized by the Latvian Society for Microbiology with the support from Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS). The aim of the Congress is to bring together professionals working in Microbiology from the countries of the Baltic Sea region. It is expected to provide the participants with a complete overview on the main directions of Microbiological studies in the Baltic countries. The Congress will be a unique platform for researchers to present their latest findings and to learn about recent achievements of their colleagues. It is intended to facilitate cooperation and teamwork among scientists from different countries of the region. We believe that the 1st Congress will be an important event in the research and professional activities of microbiologists and that it will contribute to the development of Microbiology in the region. We hope that these Congresses will continue regularly.

You are all welcome to Riga! We are sure that you will enjoy both – the participation in the Congress and the stay in our old city!
