BMS Annual Conference 22nd-25th March 2021 - Fungi and the Environment
Postponed until 23rd-26th August, 2021.
As 2021 is the 125th Anniversary of the founding of the BMS we will be examining with the BMS Council and the FBR Committee the potential for additional events which may be held at the same time. This may result in the Conference being extended for a further half or full day, with some additional and appropriate sessions. We have also firmed up on the first days’ session (Monday 23rd of August) which will be focused on PhD research students and recent post-doctoral scientists to present their work on any mycological relevant area.
We sincerely hope that the existing invited speakers will all still be able to attend. Rest assured we will be making all the necessary adjustments for this to be a safe conference and will be adding some Sessions and Events to reflect the importance of this very special occasion in which we are celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the Founding of the Society.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Cranfield in August, 2021.

Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute, Amsterdam
The 12th International Mycological Congress (IMC12) will be organized in Amsterdam, The Netherlands July 25-29, 2022. The last time this event was held in Europe was IMC9, Edinburgh, Scotland, in 2010, which was a great success.
(25–29 July 2022)
“Fungal Biology and Applications”
The Dutch Mycological Society, in collaboration with the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute, is pleased to invite you to attend the 12th International Mycological Congress (25–29 July 2022) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. We are excited for the return of this incredible mycological experience to Europe. For the first time, IMC will be hosted in the Netherlands, home to famous mycologists like Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, Hendrik Persoon, Johanna Westerdijk, J.A.(Dolf) von Arx, Cornelius Bas, Joop van Brummelen, and many, many more.
The theme for the congress is “Fungal Biology and Applications”, and will cover cutting edge developments, numerous hands-on workshops, satellite meetings and incredible symposia. IMC12 is the one-stop-shop for mycology. Amsterdam is affordable, safe, and home to Schiphol, one of the most efficient airports in the world. Come and launch your career and share your vision.
It’s time for mycology, it’s time to come back to where it all started, it’s time for Amsterdam! Expand your fungal network, discover mycology, and join us!
