SIMB 2015 Annual Meeting Welcome Letter
It is my pleasure to invite you to join us for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society for Industrial Microbiology & Biotechnology, August 2-6, in Philadelphia, PA, or Philly, or even the ‘City of Brotherly Love’ to its friends. The annual meeting is an excellent opportunity to hear about cutting edge science, to present your own research, to catch up with colleagues and meet new ones, and to explore diverse topics of interest. Whether you are an academic, industrial, or government employee, a student, established researcher, or retiree, the 65th annual meeting of SIMB will have something to offer you.
The Science Slam will be a a short presentation competition in which scientific topics, research results, latest technologies, etc. are presented via visual and other means. Each presenter will have 5 minutes total to enter the stage and fascinate, captivate, stun, or otherwise impress the audience. The audience will judge the presentations and at the end, someone will be crowned the “Master of SIMB Slam.” This Rapid Fire Science Slam will be composed of 25 presenters who will be chosen from accepted poster submissions to present their work on three slides, in five minutes. There will be no questions and no comments. This is an opportunity to preview your poster to the entire meeting and get your colleagues excited to see your work.
Sunday, August 2, 2:30-4:30 pm
