The Young Microbiologists Symposium (YMS) will provide an excellent opportunity for junior scientists to present their work and receive constructive feedback, to network with other students, post-docs and young PIs in the field, and hopefully to facilitate future collaborations. YMS will include three keynote addresses, eight "hot-spot" poster talks and a poster session, and opportunities for social interaction. There will be four seminar sessions, covering the following highly topical areas of prokaryotic molecular microbiology:
Gene regulation and intracellular signalling;
Structure, biogenesis and transport across membranes;
The symposium will be held 29-30 June, 2016 at the University of Dundee, Scotland.

From January 2016 NDPIA co-funding of travel costs have been raised, see below:
Travel via train/one flight (including return trip)
Up to 1500 SEK
Travel longer distances (two flights/sleeper train, including return trip)
Up to 2000 SEK
Everybody who applies (i.e. indicates the need for) for NDPIA co-funding of travel and/or accommodation costs to participate in activities announced at www.ndpia.se will receive co-funding.
After the activity has taken place the co-funding will be payed to the NDPIA participant's project upon submission of relevant form found at https://ndpia.se/travel-and-accommodation-support/. Please read the guidelines thoroughly before filling out and sending the form.
All NDPIA participants are welcome to join UCMR Day 2016 in Umeå 14 January! UCMR is short for Umeå Centre for Microbial Research and is an interdisciplinary research centre established by a consortium of scientists representing medical & molecular microbiology, molecular & structural biology, chemistry & physics, and is devoted to top quality research and novel applications in the fields of microbial pathogenesis.
The annual UCMR Day targets research groups, collaboration partners and researchers with an interest in microbial research and/or infection biology. The UCMR Day features inspiring research presentations and an excellent opportunity for networking and initiation of multidisciplinary collaborations.
All NDPIA members registering to UCMR Day 2016 are expected to present a poster at the meeting. Short talks will be selected among the submitted poster titles!
