Cyano2022 - 7th Early Career Researcher Symposium on Cyanobacteria


Dear fellow Cyano enthusiasts,

We invite you for this years’ Cyano2022, the 7th early career researcher symposium on cyanobacteria, an initiative from the Association for General and Applied Microbiology (Vereinigung für Allgemeine und Angewandte Mikrobiologie, VAAM). It takes place from 26.-28.09.2022 in Leipzig, Germany, hosted by the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ. As usual, this meeting of the special group cyanobacteria of the VAAM will be, besides invited keynote speakers, mainly composed of talk and poster contributions from young scientists, explicitly including students, with plenty of time for discussions, completed by a social program.

It is our great pleasure to announce the confirmed keynote speakers:

Katja Bühler (UFZ Leipzig) on site
Jan Červený (Global Change Research Institute, Brno) on site
Nir Keren (University of Jerusalem) online
Pia Lindberg (Uppsala University) on site

We’re looking forward to their and your participation! Registration and abstract submission are now open until 7th August 2022. Please use the provided separate online applications forms for this (can be found on the left) and feel free to contact us in case of any questions! The final schedule will be available here in due time as well. We will start the meeting on Monday, 26th September 2022 at 2 PM and close by Wednesday, 28th September 12 PM.

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the last two events of this series unfortunately had to be done online. This year we´re still optimistic though that we can meet actually in person again in Leipzig! Therefore, we currently don’t plan the symposium to be in an online or hybrid format but only on site for participants.

We hope to see you in Leipzig!
