The first day will consist of a number of talks that cover the diverse ways that microbes influence the ecology of organisms and ecosystems. During the second day there will be a “Horizon Scanning Workshop” – the aim of which is to identify the next big questions in microbial ecology (similar to previous events run by Prof. Bill Sutherland). This is a really valuable exercise with high potential for impact, and all participants will be listed as co-authors on the resulting peer-reviewed publication.
