A conference to celebrate 125 years of the British Mycological Society (1896-2021)
To celebrate 125 years of the BMS, we have created a full and varied programme of presentations, poster sessions, seminars and workshops for all from the fungal biology and ecology community, with an additional day dedicated to early career mycologists. The conference is open to national and international BMS members and non-members from the broad mycology community.
The main meeting will be preceded by the 1st BMS Research Student Conference, for PhD research students and recent post-doctoral scientists to present their work, hear from a selection of speakers and meet with colleagues from across the mycology sector.
All attendees will be welcomed to Cranfield on the first evening with a barbeque and chance to meet colleagues, old and new.
The three-day scientific programme includes international speakers in five sessions discussing fungi in the built, human, industrial/technological and natural environments. In parallel, colleagues from the field mycology arena will have the opportunity to gather and participate in seminars and workshops on the latest developments. All are invited to join the BMS at Woburn Safari Lodge for an evening of music and the Conference Dinner. The final morning’s presentations will be on the theme of 'climate change and interactions with fungi', and the scientific meeting concludes with lunch.
Colleagues from the field mycology arena will have parallel sessions with speakers covering aspects of Taxonomy, Recording and Conservation. The practical element of the Spring Field Meeting follows, from Wednesday lunch time until Sunday midday in Mitchell Hall.
All attendees are invited to join the BMS at Woburn Safari Lodge for an evening of music, aware of prizes and the Conference Dinner.
We look forward to welcoming you all to an exciting meeting in April 2022!
