The Center invite applications to the International Workshop on "Marine Geomicrobiology – a Matter of Energy" which will take place at the beautiful Sandbjerg Manor in southern Denmark during August 28 to September 1, 2017. An outstanding program of 35 international speakers will explore how microorganisms harvest energy from sunlight, from chemical reactions and even from electric currents to drive key processes of element cycling in the ocean and seabed. We will focus on recent discoveries and on open questions that provoke curiosity and require new research. The workshop marks the ten years of the Center for Geomicrobiology, Aarhus University, and the retirement of Bo Barker Jørgensen. We invite researchers and students to participate in the workshop and to present a poster on their research. Application takes place through the workshop webpage where the program and other relevant information are provided (see link below).  Deadline for applications is April 1, 2017.
