We would like to express our deepest condolences and sympathies to all those affected by COVID-19.
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ACM17 will be held online instead of hosting participants in Tokyo. Although we were looking forward to holding an in-person meeting, we believe that the online format allows us to establish a new style of communication with more participants than previously expected.
While we are required to adapt to the age of the coronavirus, it is true that culture collections are now in a period of transition. Bioeconomy is globally among us. The fourth industrial revolution comes to focus on microbial resources along with the digital transformation of the existing industries and societies. Japan has already published its “Bioeconomy Strategy 2019”. Society 5.0 of Japan now challenges to solve our global problems, for example, the ocean plastic issue, through innovation without sacrificing economic growth. The digital transformation will be the key to create further additional value from our microbial resources.
Distinguished guest speakers provide the participants with their professional views from industry, academia, and government as well as culture collection.
Lastly, we hope you, your loved ones, and colleagues' health and safety. To overcome this difficulty, we propose to strengthen our unity in Asia.
We look forward to welcoming you from bottom of our heart from Japan.
Deadline for registration is Aug. 17th.
Participation is free.
Presenters shall submit the presentation file by Aug. 28th to email@example.com.
