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 conference only starting on 29 September 2020 at 11:00 am (CEST) and ending on 1 October 2020 6:00 pm (CEST). Especially regarding the current situation, we are happy to chair a lively conference with more than 150 abstracts submitted. We invite you to join the oral and poster sessions. For details on the conference format and presentations, please have a look at the programme.

We are looking forward to virtually meet you at the first online biofilms conference!
