Abstract submission is now open! The new deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 May 2020

Welcome to biofilms 9 | 28 September - 1 October 2020

The conference exploring the fundamentals and applications of biofilms on a scientific and technological level

Dear colleagues and friends,

These days everyone of us is facing the news and the development on the spread of COVID-19 (Corona virus). That does have significant consequences to our daily life. Similar to most countries in the world Germany is more and more locked down.

We thus fully understand that people are reserved uploading abstracts or planning a trip abroad without knowing if it will be possible or not.

Nevertheless, we believe that by following the national and international guidelines to avoid spreading of COVID-19, the chance of joining the biofilms 9 conference is still there. As a consequence, abstract submission deadline has been extended to 15 May 2020 and the registration has not been opened, yet.

As soon there is more clarity, we are going to post relevant updates.

Best regards and stay healthy!
