Emerging Science Submissions Open April 4!

General Abstract Submission is now closed.

Join more than 3000 of your peers worldwide who have already submitted abstracts to ASM Microbe 2023. We are seeking emerging science, including findings with potentially high impact to be included in our cutting-edge scientific program.

Emerging science submissions should highlight novel, unanticipated, high impact or disruptive studies with a time-sensitive urgency. Such findings should have a clear public impact and advance a field significantly or in new directions. Examples in this category include work related to a new outbreak or research describing a newly uncovered biological mechanism.

Note: This is not an opportunity to submit an abstract that only describes a rigorous study that could have been submitted during the general submission periods. General submission abstracts will be rejected if submitted in the emergent findings category.
