IUMS Daejeon 2020

Welcome Message

Dear Participants of the IUMS2020 Congress!

I would like to welcome you to this congress. We planned an interesting congress in the beautiful and exciting city of Daejeon, South Korea. Unfortunately, because of the Covid-19 pandemic we had to change to a virtual congress. This means we can't talk to each other and network. We also can't have vivid discussions with questions and answers after each talk. However, we still have many excellent talks to listen to and a lot to learn.

I would like to thank the South Korea Organizing Committee, and the Program Committee - composed of the IUMS Vice Chairs and Korean scientists - for their excellent work. Many thanks to the Chairman Prof. Sang-Ki Rhee who successfully led the committees in a very challenging time.

And to you, all our dear speakers and participants, I hope that you enjoy the interesting talks! I also wish us all that the next meeting will not have to be virtual, and that we can meet each other face to face!

With best wishes for a successful congress,

Eliora Z. Ron, Ph.D. Eliora Z. Ron, Ph.D. President
International Union of Microbiological Societies

My Dear Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure that I invite you to the IUMS 2020 International Symposium, which boasts a long history and tradition, from November 16 to 20, 2020 in Daejeon, Korea. In recent years, we have made a dynamic development in the field of science and technology, and I want you, the protagonists of this development, to attend this forum of international scientific community.

IUMS 2020 is organized jointly by the IUMS Organizing Committee and the Federation of Korean Microbiological Societies (FKMS). FKMS is a coalition of five traditional Korean microbiological societies (the Korean Society for Microbiology and Biotechnology, the Korean Society for Microbiology, the Microbiological Society of Korea, the Korean Society of Mycology, and the Korean Society of Virology). Hosting FKMS's 20th International Conference with IUMS2020 is a great opportunity for academic exchange among microbiologists in Korea and around the world. IUMS 2020 is therefore expected to cover a variety of the latest research topics in the field of microbiology better than ever.

Daejeon is geographically located in the center of Korea and is also the center of Korea's history, culture, and science and technology development. We encourage all microbiologists from all over the world to attend IUMS2020 for active academic exchanges and to fully experience Daejeon's diverse historical ruins, culture, traditions, food and entertainment.

On behalf of the IUMS2020 Organizing Committee and FKMS, I am looking forward to seeing you in Daejeon, Korea.

Sang-Ki Rhee, Ph.D. Soon-Kwang Hong FKMS Chairman
