Conference format and programme

Conference format

The biofilms 9 online conference will technically be realized using virtual ZOOM meeting rooms. This applies to oral as well as poster presentations. Exhibitors will also get this opportunity to present themselves (e.g., webinar, question-and-answer sessions, etc.). Each virtual meeting room will be hosted by the organizers (KIT) and will have a co-host. The co-host will either be the presenter of an oral presentation (incl. invited talks) or poster presentation. Since the conference has no parallel tracks there will only be one virtual meeting room for the main session. Links and login details will be provided in time.

In each poster session we will provide several virtual meeting rooms in parallel to enable an on-site experience similar to regular conferences. These virtual meeting rooms will be open for a defined period of time in which participants are encouraged to visit posters of interest. Each poster presenter will only present her/his poster at a single day. A list of all poster presentations (day, time, virtual meeting room) will be available during the conference.


How to access the programme

There are three different approaches to access the programme in your preferred way:

Announcement: Special Issue in Journal Microorganisms

Title Microbe Electrode Electron Transfer: Understanding Interactions from the Enzyme to the Microbial Community Level
Guest Editors Prof. Dr. Johannes Gescher and Dr. Catarina Paquete
Deadline 15 October 2020
Description With this Special Issue we encourage colleagues to submit papers that address: (1) the fundamental microbial biochemistry of extracellular electron transfer onto electrodes; (2) the impact of biofilms and their structure on electron transfer kinetics; (3) the characterization of new biocatalysts acting on the anode or cathode site; (4) as well as the further development of strains for electrode-assisted or driven processes.
