Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Microbiology (ECM 2025). ECM 2025 will showcase the latest research on microorganisms, covering a diverse range of topics, including the following:

S1. Gut Microbiota and Health Disease;
S2. Foodborne Pathogens and Food Safety;
S3. Antimicrobial Agents and Resistance;
S4. Emerging Infectious Diseases;
S5. Microbiome and Soil Science;
S6. Microbial Characterization and Bioprocess;
S7. Microbe–Plant Interactions.

Participation in ECM 2025 is free of charge for both authors and attendees. This conference provides an excellent platform for researchers to present their latest findings, engage in direct discussions, and participate in online Q&A sessions.
All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. Upon acceptance, authors will be asked to contribute an extended abstract for the conference proceedings and a slide presentation of their work. Authors of the most outstanding contributions will be invited to submit a full manuscript for potential publication in Microorganisms.

I look forward to your participation in this exciting conference and encourage you to share your latest ideas and research in the field of microbiology.

Kind regards,
Dr. Nico Jehmlich

1. The abstract structure should include the introduction, methods, results, and conclusions sections of about 200–300 words in length.
2. All accepted abstracts will be published as one dedicated volume in Biology and Life Sciences Forumjournal (ISSN: 2673-9976) after quality check. If you wish to publish a full-length proceedings paper, please refer to the “Publication Opportunities” Section.
3. All abstracts should be submitted and presented in clear, publication-ready English with accurate grammar and spelling.

Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the author's responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state "The authors declare no conflicts of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Any financial support for the study must be fully disclosed in the "Acknowledgments" section.


MDPI, the publisher of the platform, is an open access publisher. We believe authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting an abstract to this conference, you retain the copyright to the work, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this abstract online on the platform. This means you can easily submit your full paper (with the abstract) to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher if required.

Publication Opportunities

1. Microorganisms Journal Publication
Participants in this conference are cordially invited to contribute a full manuscript to the conference's Special Issue, published in Microorganisms (ISSN 2076-2607, Impact Factor 4.1), with a 20% discount on the publication fee.
