The next Scottish Microbiology Association biannual meeting is set to take place at the MacDonald Inchyra Grange Hotel & Spa, Falkirk . It is suitable for clinical microbiologists, infectious disease physicians, biomedical scientists.

We would also like to encourage the presentation of original work during a short paper session scheduled for the Saturday morning.  This is always a valuable experience for the presenter and is well received by the delegates.  If your presentation is accepted then you will receive free registration (including dinner, overnight accommodation and Saturday day registration) for the meeting. The best short paper (as judged by SMA council) presented by a non-consultant grade SMA member (as at 04/11/17) will be awarded a prize of up to £600 towards registration accommodation and travel at a relevant national or international meeting.  If you are submitting a short paper proposal please complete the short paper booking form to allow us to reserve accommodation if required.
