One of the difficulties working within the microbiology of the built environment is making sure that the relevant information crosses over the boundaries between building science and microbial ecology since those two groups tend to attend different meeting and read different journals. That’s one of the reasons that we’ve worked to hard to sponsor microbiology of the built environments workshops at conferences from both fields.
We’ve also encouraged people to let us know whenever they’re giving a talk related to the microbiology of the built environment so that we can promote it here. I’ve gotten several such contacts recently, these will also be added to our “Events” calendar. Feel free to add more in the comments!
