NZ Microbial Ecology Consortium

Dear Australian colleagues,
Please see attached advert for the 4th New Zealand Microbial Ecology Consortium (NZMEC) meeting, to be held at the University of Auckland on 18-19thFebruary 2016.  Registration for this meeting is free, and we think you’ll agree that there is a very strong line-up of speakers.
We would like to invite you and/or members of your lab to attend.  If you are interested in doing so then please let us know, and we would be happy to reserve some speaking/poster slots for Australian speakers.  In fact, we’d be really keen to have a dedicated “ANZAC” session, which would be headlined by our confirmed Plenary speaker, Nicole Webster (Australian Institute of Marine Science).  Our other Plenary speakers include Ed DeLong (University of Hawaii), Ian Dickie (Lincoln University), Catherine Lozupone (University of Colorado Denver), Jennifer Martiny (University of California Irvine), and Steve Pointing (AUT University).  We also have a number of invited talks from other NZ-based microbial ecologists, and some slots for early career (postdoc and PhD student) researchers.
Please feel free to distribute this announcement to other colleagues and students.  We hope to see some of you here for NZMEC4.0.
Cheers, Mike Taylor & Matt Stott (NZMEC Convenors)
