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 September 29th 2020 at 11:00 am (CEST) and end on October 1st  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 participate in plenary sessions with oral presentations and poster sessions. The programme of biofilms 9 is now available!

Best regards and stay healthy!
