2012 Symposium of the Danish Microbiological Society, Monday Nov. 5th 2012
The Danish Microbiological Society (DMS) is a professional association in the
fields of human and veterinary medical microbiology, general microbiology,
food microbiology, environmental microbiology, biotechnology, and virology.
DMS is dedicated to the advancement of microbiology, both applied and
basic, and promotes microbiological information to the public. These aims
are achieved by organizing an annual symposium, workshops, conferences,
and by taking part in the current microbiological debate. Furthermore, DMS supports students with grants for
travelling: applications for the DKK 5000 grant can be submitted each year before April 1st and October 1st.
Shouldn't you take part in the advancement of microbiology in Denmark, and become a member of DMS? As
a member, you are entitled to discounts at FEMS meetings and for FEMS journals (Federation of European
Microbiological Societies).
ABOUT the Symposium
This DMS symposium is a Danish national meeting in which all
scientists working in the fields covered by the DMS have a chance
to exchange ideas and catch up on the latest developments in their
areas of expertise. Besides the oral and poster presentations, a technical exhibition will give scientists the possibility of getting acquainted with the newest laboratory equipment and consumables that are
presented by the suppliers.
Keynote address:
Progress in the search for life in Antarctic subglacial Lake Ellsworth
David Pearce, British Antarctic Survey
Antarctic subglacial lake ecosystems have the potential to be one of the most extreme environments on Earth,
with combined stresses of high pressure, low temperature, permanent darkness, low-nutrient availability and
variable oxygen concentrations, where a predominant mode of nutrition is most likely to be chemoautotrophic.
Since the first description of Antarctic subglacial lakes there has been growing interest in the possibility that life
will exist in these unique ecosystems and that the unusual combination of selection pressures and isolation
from the rest of the biosphere, could lead to novel adaptations and physiology not seen before, or indeed even
to the discovery of relic populations that may have become extinct elsewhere. As a result of this growing
interest, three ambitious projects aim to enter and retrieve samples from Antarctic subglacial lakes over the
coming year, providing an opportunity to address some fundamental scientific questions about their microbial
ecology, such as can these extreme ecosystems sustain life, and if so, in what form, where exactly and how?
Although this talk will focus on current progress in the Lake Ellsworth Project (near the ice divide in the
Ellsworth mountains), it will also report the first microbiological analysis of a sediment sample taken from an
Antarctic subglacial lake ecosystem at the retreating margins of the Antarctic ice.

Reception with fermented beverage
2012 Symposium of the Danish Microbiological Society, Monday Nov. 5th 2012
The symposium will take place at the historical harbor pack house Eigtved's Pakhus, on November 5th, 2012.
Eigtved's Pakhus is the official meeting facilities for the Foreign Ministry of Denmark and was originally built in
1748-50. Since 1976 the pack house has served as a premium meeting venue on the harbor front in central
Copenhagen, a few minutes' walk from Metro Station Christianshavn.
Posters are welcome from all areas of microbiology. Posters (portrait format: H:150cm W: 95cm) will be
displayed all day, and presenters are asked to be present at their posters from 13:30 to 14:00. Twenty-one
posters will be selected for a short platform presentation.
Abstracts should be submitted through the DMS homepage www.dmselskab.dk before September 15th, 2012.
All abstracts will be printed in the abstract book, which will be handed out during registration and can be
downloaded from the DMS homepage.
PAYMENT (and student stipends)
The fee for attendance at the Symposium is DKK 600 (EUR 80). This includes lunch, coffee breaks, the
reception, and membership of DMS for all of 2013. Please see details for payment on the homepage.
Fifty stipends are available for Master's students who present a poster and are student members of DMS. This
gives free access to the symposium including the lunch, coffee, and the reception. The application for stipends
can be found at www.dmselskab.dk and should be submitted by September 15th, 2012.
