Abstract and paper submission
IWA Biofilms 2019 Conference: Biofilms and their interaction with surfaces
Authors are requested to electronically submit a 2 page extended abstract before April 30th 2019 for consideration for presentation.
Abstract should clearly define objectives and relevance of the work, highlight selected results, and summarize key conclusions. The procedure for submission is described below.
If your submission is accepted for an oral presentation, you will also have to submit a properly formatted full paper for inclusion in the congress preprints and for review for publication.
Papers should be between six and eight A4 pages (the maximum length is 5000 words; each normal-sized figure or table counts as 350 words and must be incorporated within the 5000 word/eight-page limit).
For poster presentations the extended abstract will be included in the congress preprints.
Papers accepted for oral presentations will be subsequently reviewed for publication in one of the IWA Publishing journals, including: Water Science and Technology, Water Science and Technology: Water Supply, or Water, Practice and Technology.
Editors of the journal will make the final decision on publication and papers may be subject to further revision. If you do not wish for your paper to be considered for publication in a journal, please make this clear upon full paper submission.
