asm2015 General Microbiology Program - Idea/Topic
Members of the General Meeting Program Committee (GMPC) are chosen to represent all fields and disciplines of ASM and will meet for 2 days in August to evaluate suggestions submitted for asm2015. Members will decide how these suggestions can be used as a basis for developing cross-cutting interdisciplinary sessions. Once a session topic has been identified for the Program, a session convener is selected and potential speakers are recommended. The session convener, under the guidance of a shepherd who oversees the development of the session, completes the session.
Please understand that a suggestion may not necessarily result in a session topic as proposed, but your ideas are highly valuable for building a session that will cover a broad base of topics for the General Meeting.
As a token of ASM's appreciation for the effort made in contributing to the program, you will be acknowledged in the Program Book irrespective of whether the specific proposal was used.
EXTENDED DEADLINE for Submissions is July 10, 2014
