SfAM events: SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 statement

Updated 10/03/2020

The Society for Applied Microbiology (SfAM) has taken the decision to cancel its Fellowship Award in London (15 March 2020) and ECS Symposium 2020 in Cardiff  (18 March 2020) 

After careful evaluation of the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 outbreak, and considering the rapidly evolving situation worldwide, and the welfare of all those involved in our events, the Executive Committee of the Society for Applied Microbiology has taken this difficult decision.

We would like to express our sincere thanks to our members for their understanding, continual support and flexibility.

The Early Career Scientist Committee have already expressed their ongoing commitment and are already beginning to put plans in place for what promises to be an extra special 10th anniversary ECS Research Symposium in 2021.

We will release information about the Plant-Microbe Interactions meeting and our plans for events later in the year as soon as we can.
