Welcome letter

Dear colleagues,

It is a great honor and pleasure to invite you to the 14th edition of the European Oral Microbiology Workshop to be held in Valencia (Spain), in May 2024. It will be 3 years since our last meeting (which had to be celebrated online due to the pandemic) and 7 years since the last face-to-face meeting in Stockholm in 2017. We know that everybody is very excited to meet again in person, present our latest data, discuss the current understanding of the field, and identify future challenges and the corresponding approaches to address them.

We will keep the philosophy of previous EOMW meetings: A reduced number of participants with a single session that everybody can attend; talks programmed to allow sufficient time to present and for questions; lunch, dinner, and sessions in the same venue, to allow and facilitate intense scientific interactions; a relaxed, out-of-the-crowd venue in the countryside, providing an inspiring atmosphere that allows plenty of social interactions; a relaxed and long enough poster session where everybody can attend; an all-included registration where accommodation, fees, dinner, and special events are included.

We are aware that due to current inflation in most Western countries, the cost of conferences has dramatically increased. We are therefore making an effort to reduce the cost by applying for international (FEMS organization) and national (Valencian Region Congress Funding) grants to help oral microbiologists to attend, and a special fund for early career scientists has been applied for. Contacts with different companies are also being held to apply for support, as well as with local authorities.

A big thank you from all organizing committee members for trusting us to organize this special event, and looking forward to meeting you all again in 2024!
