 会議は4 つのセッション((1) 環境による制限と進化の多様性、(2) 生物地球化学的循環と土壌形成、(3) 共生と相互作用、(4) 微生物系への新しいアプローチ) からなり、それぞれを通じて、噴火直後の火山周辺や洞窟、岩石表面などの極端な環境を含む地球上の多様な環境に生育するバクテリアの集団や、バクテリアと植物、バクテリアと昆虫などの共生体について幅広い研究が紹介された。さらに、分子生物学技術とコンピュータを駆使して、遺伝子の側面から複雑な微生物集団を解析する研究の急速な発展が報告された。現代生物学の基礎を築くための重要な貢献をしてきた微生物学が、生物学の新たな発展の最前線を形成しつつあることが示された会議だった。研究の最前線に携わっている若手研究者も多数参加し、5 日間隔離された環境の中で集中した雰囲気を持続することにより、今後の研究の核となるコミュニティー形成に資するところが大きかった。
