About the biofilms conference series

Biofilms is a well-established conference series for biofilm research in Europe.

The biofilms conference series was formed in 2004, based on the idea of Rainer Abraham, Thomas Neu and Hans-Curt Flemming. The first conference took place in Osnabrück, Germany in a meeting during 2004, organised by Wolfgang Streit's lab and Dirk Wenderoth. The conference was received very positively and thus repeated every 2 years. At the biofilms 3 conference in Munich, Thomas Neu indicated in his closing remarks that the biofilms series should become European. Since then, the biofilms conference series has established itself in Europe for non-medical biofilm research and is attracting more and more participants.
