Fascinated with subsurface microbiology? Microbiologists, ecologists, geoscientists, and all other interested researchers or students are invited to become members of the International Society for Subsurface Microbiology.

There are no dues or membership fees to join the Society.

All we ask for in return is your contact information so that we may send you pertinent information about the next Society symposium and other news items related to subsurface microbiology. We will not share your contact information with any other organization or group.

The benefits of membership include:


  • Updates on upcoming ISSM symposia and other relevant information about subsurface microbiology.
  • Opportunities to interact and network with researchers from around the world who have common interests in subsurface microbiology.
  • Opportunities to share information on current and future research needs and trends, including leading-edge research on “hot” topics.

Meeting old friends and making new connections is an integral part of our symposium experience. Our schedule offers plenty of opportunities to engage directly with colleagues all throughout the event.
