This symposium will bring together molecular microbial ecologists specializing in different organism groups to share the latest results and discuss methodological problems, as well as future prospects in the field, including practical international collaborations. However, all microbe enthusiasts, including those wanting to learn about microbially mediated processes and techniques are welcome to attend.

Organizers: Dr. Eeva Eronen-Rasimus (University of Helsinki) and Dr. Eric Collins (University of Manitoba & University of Alaska Fairbanks)

The environmental focus of the symposium will be on cryospheric environments, including sea ice, glaciers, ice sheets, and permafrost, but research in other polar environments is also invited. The methods to be discussed will focus on ‘omics’ techniques, ranging from single cells to metagenomes, but research using additional methods is encouraged as well.

Abstract submission deadline: 14 March 2022
