Yet another conference is scheduled for December 2011 in Paris. Here are the details.

Microbiota 2011 – December 13th – 14th (details are here or here)

Here is part of their introduction:

“MICROBIOTA 2011 will bring together academic experts and industry leaders to discuss and debate their experiences relating to the latest discoveries and research on the human microbe population and the implications of these findings on the development of health and wellbeing products for consumers.”

It promises to be microbiome focused, and to touch upon microbiota associated with various anatomical areas of the human body (i.e. not just the gut). Given the speaker list and program it looks like the conference will have a focus on academic-industry relations and how fundamental research gets translated to real-life commercial products. That kind of viewpoint is not the domain of more academic conferences, so I expect that some interesting perspectives will come out from some the speakers. One to watch.
