It is a great pleasure and privilege for us to welcome you, on behalf of both organizing societies - The Portuguese Society of Microbiology and The Portuguese Society of Biotechnology, to the joint meeting MicroBiotec09, which is to be held in Vilamoura, Algarve, 28-30 November 2009 at the Congress Centre of Tivoli Marina Hote.

We are anticipating an important meeting addressing relevant aspects of current topics in the broad areas of microbiology and biotechnology including environmental microbiology, industrial and food microbiology, clinical microbiology and epidemiology, microbiological pathogenesis, cell and tissue engineering, biomaterials, nanobiotechnologies and pharmaceutical biotechnology.

The interest of our community became apparent by the high number of anticipated participants, as well as the high number of submitted abstracts. Delegates will be pleased to find a programme of high scientific quality with plenary lectures, symposia, and poster sessions. To the symposia, specialists on selected subjects have been invited, and speakers of the oral communications have been chosen among the authors of the best abstracts, according to the rating by the reviewers. The thematic spectrum of the oral sessions is wide-ranging and interesting, thanks to a large number of submissions received for presentation at this conference in Vilamoura.

In addition, MicroBiotec09 will award prizes, namely for the Best Poster and Best Presentation in each symposium.

We wish you a fruitful conference and an enjoyable stay in Vilamoura!
