biofilms 9 will be held online

Dear colleagues and friends,

These days everyone of us is facing the news and the development of the spread of COVID-19 (Corona virus). That does have significant consequences to our daily life.

As the current situation is not likely to improve until September to a level that would allow for a traditional conference, we decided that biofilms 9 will take place as online web conference only starting on September 29th 2020 at 11:00 am (CEST) and end on October 1st  2020 6:00 pm (CEST). We invite you to participate and present in plenary sessions with oral presentations and sessions where posters can be presented to a smaller audience. Especially regarding the current situation, we are happy to chair a lively conference with more than 120 abstracts submitted so far.

As some researchers were probably hesitant to submit an abstract due to open questions regarding the conference format, we decided to shift the deadline for abstract submissions to 28 May 2020.

Best regards and stay healthy!
