15th Iranian and International Congress of Microbiology

Dear all Colleagues and Friends,

It is our pleasure to invite you once again to the 15th Iranian and International Congress of Microbiology that will be held at Tehran university of Medical Sciences (TUMS) during 26- 28 of August 2014. Our previous congress program was welcomed by the participants including the International invited speakers. That encouraged the Board Members of Iranian Society of Microbiology (ISM) to do their best to organize the next program with some changes to improve the quality of programs.

The members of scientific and Executive Committees are working hard and with great enthusiasm on a program focused on the latest developments in Clinical, industrial and environmental Microbiology. The congress not only includes keynote lectures, meet-the-expert and poster sessions, but also offers several workshops opportunity for young colleagues and beginners in the field.

Similar to the previous congress, ISM has planned to award prizes to the Students and Researchers. To review the papers in time, we invite the participant to register at the congress website (www.ismcongress.ir) and submit their abstract as early as possible. ISM also has program to publish the high qualified papers in Iranian Journal of Microbiology (IJM) as free of charge. IJM is indexed in scientific databases such as PubMed, PMC and Scopus.

You will benefit from state-of-the-art updates in various aspects of diagnostic microbiology as well as a unique opportunity to make acquaintance with students, academics, and researchers from all over the country and a few notable international scientists. Make a difference! Meet your friends and colleagues, share ideas, plan ahead and shape the future.
