The meeting topics will cover protein phosphorylation, uridylation, acetylation, glycosylation, pupylation, targeted degradation and other modifications, as well as the methods used to study them.

A research topic of Frontiers in Microbiology focusing on bacterial PTMs is open for submissions here.

All conference participants are invited to submit their manuscripts directly via the Frontiers website. The deadline for manuscript submission is May is 2019. The topics of submitted manuscripts do not have to correspond to the conference presentations/posters. Any contribution relevant for the field of bacterial PTMs is welcome. For any questions related to the research topic please contact one of the Topic Editors: Ivan Mijakovic, Christophe Grangeasse, Boris Macek.

The best presentation from a young scientist (PhD/PostDoc) will be awarded.

To foster scientific exchange and quality, the meeting will be opened to 75 participants selected on the basis of their submitted abstracts. The registration costs of 100 EUR will cover the organization costs, coffee brakes, two light lunches, a social event and a conference dinner; the participants will be responsible to organize and cover their own travel and accommodation.
