Welcome to Dalhousie

We are very pleased to invite you to the 72nd Annual Conference of the Canadian Society of Microbiologists (CSM 2023) that will be held in person at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a selected virtual program also being offered online between June 25-28, 2023. Dalhousie University in Halifax is located on Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq. We are fortunate to convene our conference experience on this beautiful territory.

The Local Organizing Committee of CSM 2023 is excited to host a successful event that will showcase the breadth, diversity, and excellence of the Canadian microbiology community. This year's CSM 2023 conference theme is Microbial Ecosystems - Environment and Health, but we welcome microbiology-focused abstract submissions from all facets of the field at our general meeting. The local organizing committee (LOC) employs best practices and EDI principles to promote talks from various equity-seeking groups as well as researchers at all career stages as appropriate.

CSM 2023 is pleased to once again offer a virtual registration option this year, for any participant who is unable to travel to Halifax to join us in person. All in-person registrants have access to our virtual conference events and symposia. A virtual registration will include live/synchronous participation in the Keynote & Awards lectures, Student/ PDF Symposia Events as well as an online poster session.

Not only will we have an exceptional scientific program but we will also make sure that your experience in Halifax is worthwhile! Halifax is a nice place to visit in June, situated on the Atlantic Ocean with lots of history. We have freed up an afternoon on the last day to give you the opportunity to enjoy a stroll on the boardwalk or visit some of Halifax's famous historical sites. This free afternoon will be followed by the President Banquet that will be held at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21. We encourage attendees to explore the maritime region of Nova Scotia before or after the conference.

We look forward to hosting CSM 2023 and to welcoming you to Halifax in June. In the meantime, check our website pages often for the latest updates and you can follow us on Twitter at @csm_scm2023 to get the latest news regarding CSM 72nd Annual Conference.
