IUMS Daejeon 2020


Dear fellow microbiologists and colleagues,

On behalf of the National Organizing Committee and the Federation of Korean Microbiological Societies (FKMS), I would like to welcome all the participants from all over the world to the IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea which will take place 16 – 20 November, 2020 in Daejeon, Korea. Although IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea has to be changed to a virtual meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Daejeon is still an ideal place to visit as your next destination with its modern scientific infrastructure and beautiful surroundings.

The IUMS 2020 Virtual incorporates three major international congresses: the 16th International Congress of Bacteriology and Applied Microbiology, the 16th International Congress of Mycology and Eukaryotic Microbiology and the 18th International Congress of Virology. These separate congresses will be connecting each other with all current issues and different topics of microbiology in the Bridging Sessions.

This event will be truly an international arena to exchange knowledge and ideas among professionals from academia, clinical practice, industry and research institutions to foster cross-discipline collaboration in the spirit of sharing. The knowledge, information and experience will be shared by participants to make the events the largest and most comprehensive virtual gathering of global microbiological community.

We are ready and in good preparation to host the most interesting IUMS Congresses in the virtual form having invited more than 200 eminent microbiologists from all over the world including the Nobel laureate, Prof. Rolf M. Zinkernagel. Their active participation and supportive cooperation for the IUMS 2020 Virtual amid the crisis of COVID-19 pandemic will be the most important ingredient to make the event even greater and be very much appreciated.

With a great pride and excitement, I am very much looking forward to witnessing all the participants experiencing very interesting and scientifically stimulating virtual congresses. I wish all of you to join and learn a lot about new findings in the virtual congresses of IUMS 2020 Daejeon, Korea.

Yours sincerely,
