Increasing focus on the Arctic region due to climate change and natural resources such as oil and minerals has made Greenland a hot topic recently and it is of course an excellent place to meet and discuss polar and alpine microbiology.
The theme of PAM 2017 will be: Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
This theme should reflect that PAM 2017 will place emphasis on novel research showcasing the roles of microbes in the rapidly changing polar and alpine environments. Greenland-related research will of course be prominent throughout the conference.
We hope you will join us for an interesting conference and look forward to welcoming you to Greenland in 2017.
