Welcome address

Microorganisms are a key component of the Earth’s biosphere, and microbial communication – whether between microbes, with higher organisms or with the environment – is an important driver of the Earth system. Our annual International Conference on Microbial Communication (MiCom) for students aims to generate new understanding of these interactions and their many consequences from molecular to global scales.  

MiCom is organized and hosted each year by PhD students from the Jena School for Microbial Communication (JSMC).  We cordially invite you to join us for our 3rd year of discussion and interdisciplinary collaboration with a growing international community of young scientists.  Both talks and poster presentations are welcome.  We hope to see you there!
