The Conference has been cancelled
It is with great regret that we must now announce that the 9th European Spores Conference, originally planned for April 15th-17th 2020 and then postponed to 8th-10th April 2021, is cancelled.
This has been a very difficult decision for us, but the ongoing emergency due to the Covid pandemic infection has made it impossible to predict how the situation will be in April.
We sincerely hope to organize the Conference and meet all of you as soon as the Covid emergency will be over.

The European Spores Conference (ESC) has rapidly become one of the leading ‘focused’ microbiology conferences with a reputation for outstanding speakers, a beautiful venue and excellent social events. The ESC provides the only worldwide forum for scientists with an interest in spore-forming microbes and now attracts participants (academic and industry) from across the globe. The conference has followed earlier meetings in Slovakia, Italy and UK.
The 9th ESC is back to Italy and will be held in the
We are very much interested in talks that cover the spectrum of spore formers, including:
• Bacillus as a model for studying cell differentiation
• Spore structure and function
• The impact of spores in the food industry
• Clostridium difficile and the role of the spores in disease and dissemination
• Bacillus anthracis
• The use of spores in food as human dietary supplements and animal feed products including aquaculture
• Applied uses of spores including bioremediation and biosensors
The 9th ESC offers a number of invited speaker presentations as well as the opportunity for early stage researchers to present. Networking is encouraged and we offer:
• extended breaks between sessions
• poster sessions
• trade stands and exhibits
Becoming a speaker:
Oral presentations will be chosen from abstracts submitted to email@example.com before January 31st, 2020.
We look forward to seeing you in Naples !
