The EcotoxicoMic 2022 international congress, dedicated to microbial ecotoxicology and organised in Montpellier (France) November 15-18, 2022
Microbial ecotoxicology lies at the interface of several scientific fields such as ecology, microbiology, toxicology, soil physics, hydrology, chemistry, bioprocesses, agronomy, etc. A multidisciplinary approach is necessary to decipher the relationships between microorganisms and the contaminants to which they are exposed in their environment. The collaboration of scientists from different backgrounds is required to better understand and control the impacts of contamination on microorganisms and their consequences on the functioning of ecosystems and to propose solutions to control these impacts.
For this new edition of EcotoxicoMic 2022, we want to highlight emerging issues, directly related to the interests of our scientific community. To this end, we are proposing 3 classical sessions and two invited sessions, which will be organised by a team outside the scientific and organising committees, following a call for contributions (see information in the description of the sessions below). In order to consolidate the involvement of international partners, the organisers of the event have decided to include international members in the SC and to invite five international speakers to present the plenary lectures. This active participation of international partners is a concrete expression of the desire to open up the event internationally, which was initiated in 2017. Moreover, several actions will be proposed to promote the participation of young researchers and to highlight their work. Finally, the opening towards a wider public will be done by the organisation of a free public evening open to all (in association with Pint of Science).
Sessions description and confirmed keynote speakers are now available
