Microbiology 2019

Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to announce the International Conference and Expo on Microbiology organized by Coalesce Research Group which is to be held on November 18-19, 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. Microbiology has connected top applied research and early-stage innovations from universities, labs, and startups with industry end-users and prospectors. Innovative and Emerging applications of Microbiology have significantly reshaped the Manufacturing, Biotechnology, Pharmaceutical, Environmental and Electronic markets.

In-depth market analysis of these technologies as well as trends, forecasts and profiles of major players from different analytical reports from various analysts prove how valuable the growth of microbiology has become. Efficiency of Microbiology has led to great and had a great environmental impact. This intriguing event has taken the initiative to gather the world class experts both from Academic and Industry in a common platform at Microbiology Conference to share their recent research finding to the world and enlighten other esteemed delegates on latest trends in the field of Microbiology. We cordially invite all concerned people from different countries of Europe (UK, London, Spain, Istanbul, Denmark, Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Brazil, Turkey, Israel, India, China, Japan) to come join us at our event and make it successful by your participation.

Exciting developments in Food Microbiology has been the availability and application of molecular analyses that have allowed scientists to address microbial food safety questions beyond merely determining whether particular pathogens are in a food. Such global analyses are allowing scientists to ask deeper questions regarding food-borne pathogens and are currently leading the way to ascertaining the genes, proteins, networks, and cellular mechanisms that determine the persistence of strains in foods and other environments, determine why certain strains are more commonly isolated from foods, and determine why certain strains are more pathogenic. Such molecular tools are also making it possible to more fully determine the microflora present in foods along with pathogens, and to assess the effect that the food microbiota has on the death, survival, and pathogenicity of food borne pathogens.

Abstract Peer-review Process/Guidelines:
• The Reviewing Committee of Microbiology Conferences ensures high-quality peer review process for all abstracts submitted to the conference.
• The decision of abstract acceptance will be judged by a panel of experts emphasizing whether the findings and / or conclusions are novel and make useful contributions to the field.
• The committee operates a single / double-blind peer review process for all the abstracts submitted, where both the reviewer and the author remain anonymous.
The following are the steps that each abstract of Microbiology Conferences undergoes during the process of peer review:
• All submitted abstracts are reviewed by internal editorial team to ensure adherence to the conference scope and abstracts which have passed this initial screening are then assigned to the session chair / review committee for evaluation.
• Once the reviews have been received, the review committee decides to accept or reject a manuscript, or to request revisions from the author in response to the reviewers’ comments. If the decision tends to be minor revision or major revision, authors will be given 14 days to resubmit the revised abstract.
The abstract should be reviewed according to the following criteria:
• Originality of concept/approach and level of innovativeness
• Significance/impact/relevance to conference theme
• Quality of research design/theoretical argument
• Conclusions and interpretations of results
• Way of presentation: Coherence and clarity of structure

Educational Opportunities:
Everyone can learn, without exposure to new points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results. Microbiology 2019 conference can expose you to new ways of conducting your research and help you discover how to be more innovative.

Networking with Peers:
Academic and Industrial conferences provide a great opportunity to network. Often researchers and scientists from other regions of the country can become valuable resources for referrals and best-practices. Avoiding peers for fear of others discovering your competitive advantage can actually limit your own success. Collaboration is the way to approach networking. While there are those whose intentions can be suspect, most people can help each other uncover ideas and spark inspiration when they get to know each other on a personal level.

Position yourself as an Expert:
Microbiology 2019 helps you to position you as an expert and you can develop a reputation as an expert to your peers. As you are engaged over the long term are often asked to speak at the events and to write articles for their academic and industrial publications. Like it or not, others like to associate with the experts in any industry. We feel good about meeting experts with those that are celebrated by their peers.

Encounter New Exhibitors and Sponsor’s:
A chance to meet some of the best people for you to get to know if you want to learn more about the current business climate. Discovering innovative products and services for your research and business is necessary to stay competitive in today’s fast-paced world. Plus, these exhibitors and sponsors who sell to your industry fully grasp what is happening inside your competition. Invest time with the sponsors at the event and turn them into your friends and allies.
