The FEMS2023 scientific program will be presented in live, on-site sessions.
These sessions focus on a broad area of the microbial sciences with high-level, leaders in the field. At the Opening Ceremony, one of the plenary lectures is the FEMS-Lwoff lecture. Plenary lectures at the opening ceremony will be 50 minutes, plenary lectures in the mornings of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be 45 minutes.
The FEMS-Lwoff Award for Achievements in Microbiology rewards those that create high quality knowledge that helps to solve today’s societal problems around microbiology. The winner of this award will give a prize lecture at the Opening Ceremony.
These 2 hour sessions address an important issue or research on a particular microbiology subject, with a diversity of knowledge and/or points of view presented by several speakers. The format can be a round table or presentations by multiple speakers. Speakers will be available to take questions from the audience.
Offered Talks Session
Offered Talks Sessions (OTS) are selected from abstracts for a relatively small group, focus on the technology-methods and skills in a particular field of microbiology. The OTS chairs are senior scientists in this field and that lead discussions about the presented research, eventually joint by a co-chair they selected. The presenters are also selected by the OTS chairs; they can present their research in a presentation of 10 min. + 5 min discussion.
Poster Flash Presentations
In a Poster Flash Presentation, each presentation is 3 minutes, with 2 minutes for discussion.
