The ISS Congress is the sanctioned meeting of the International Symbiosis Society and is held every three years. It is the primary international meeting focusing on symbioses, including complex interactions between hosts and their microbiomes. The Congress is anticipated to bring together 400 symbiosis scientists from up to 20 nations to present the latest research in symbioses, their ubiquity in nature and their impact on all environments on the planet. The primary aim of the ISS is to support and promote the dissemination of knowledge and understanding of symbioses, both to the research community and wider public, and so highlight the widespread ecological and socio-economic importance of symbioses for the public good.
