Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to the upcoming Global Microbial Identifier GMI 14 in Barcelona on 4, 5 and 6 September. This scientific event, to be held in the vibrant city of Barcelona, promises to be an unparalleled gathering of global scientific minds. 

This year we will include topics covered in Vancouver (GMI13) such as data harmonisation, data sharing, but we will also reassess the WG and introduce challenging topics: AI, the economic impact of WGS, equitable data sharing, a breakout session with stakeholders including industry, and discussions on political and cultural barriers.

As leaders in your respective fields, your expertise and insights will be invaluable to the dialogue and exchange of ideas that will characterise this conference. We cordially invite you to register for the conference and participate in the discussions, presentations and networking opportunities that will undoubtedly contribute to and promote the advancement of genomics research and innovation.

In addition to the enriching scientific programme, we encourage you to take advantage of your time in Barcelona to explore its rich cultural heritage, which offers a wealth of opportunities for cultural immersion and leisure activities.

We are confident that your participation in GMI14 will be not only professionally rewarding, but also an unforgettable experience in one of Europe’s most dynamic cities.

If you are interested in making a reservation at the UAB University Hotel (the closest place to the conference at the best prices), please note that due to the limited number of rooms, reservations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.  

We look forward to welcoming you to Barcelona and to the stimulating exchange of ideas and knowledge that awaits you at the conference.

Best regards,

Armand Sanchez
