The Microbial Biotechnology Division of the European Federation of Biotechnology is happy to announce the 6th meeting on Microbial Responses to Stress - Microbial Stress 2023 - with a program covering both fundamental and applied aspects. 

Researchers from academia and industry are invited to join the meeting at TU Wien, Vienna, Austria from September 18-21, 2023, including microbiologists, biotechnologists, system biologists, biochemists, and molecular biologists. 

As a satellite event to this meeting the COST action EuroMicropH will organize a 2 days Open Meeting (18-19 September 2023), which will share a joint session with the EFB Microbial Stress meeting at the same venue. 

The abstract submission for oral and poster presentations is open until 30 May 2023.

Meeting topics covered are

  1. Molecular mechanisms of stress
  2. Microbial stress in bioproduction systems
  3. Challenges to microbial life in the natural environment: adaptation and evolution 
  4. Plant microbe interactions and soil microorganisms
  5. Stresses associate with human-microbe interactions
