Tomasek Days of Young Microbiologists

XXX. Tomasek Days of Young Microbiologists (June 2021)

This year XXX. Tomasek Days of Young Microbiologists will be modified, because the duration of preventive pandemic measures remains still unclear. We are aware that postponing or even cancelling this year's event could cause unpleasant difficulties to authors. Therefore, the decision was made to organize this year's event in an electronic form.

Tomasek Days of Young Microbiologists is a conference which has been organized since 1992 annually by the Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk University in Brno and St. Anne's University Hospital in Brno in cooperation with Czechoslovak Society for Microbiology. The other official conference organizers are The Czech Medical Association J. E. Purkyně and the Society for Medical Microbiology CMA JEP. The presenting author (or main author of the poster) must be under 36 years old.


Conference information:

Abstracts must be sent only electronically in English, Czech or Slovak language till 31st May 2021. Please find more information about the structure of abstracts at this page. Abstracts sent after the deadline or without recommended structure will not be accepted.

We would like to offer the authors a chance to present their scientific results in two common ways, i.e. oral presentation and poster. 

Oral presentations will be in form of a presentation with an audio commentary attached, or alternatively a video recording of an oral presentation. These three options are available:

  1. To add an audio narration to your PowerPoint presentation.

  3. A video recording of your oral presentation, please use .avi, .mp(e)g, mp4 or .mkv formats.

Please send your posters in .pdf format.
