    IWA Biofilms 2019 Conference: Biofilms and their interaction with surfaces

    As microbial biofilms are relevant in several areas, this conference aims to provide a meeting point for scientists to to present their most recent data and exchange novel information on basic and applied aspects of biofilms. We also expect to provide a meeting point for Latin-american scientists working on biofilm topics.

    The multidisciplinary program will cover several subjects and will be a mix of basic and applied topics. Five sessions will cover the following topics:

    1. Fundamentals in biofilm-surface interaction
    2. Biofilms in biomedical devices
    3. Biofilm modelling (metabolic, reactors)
    4. Microbial Ecology & biofilms (EPS, marine biofilms, drinking water distribution systems, sampling and quantification methodologies)
    5. Water, air and soil: Using biofilms for industrial processes, water treatment and bioremediation

    We solicit research reports that address the entire range of above-mentioned topics. Contributions are sought from fundamental studies, applied studies, and interdisciplinary studies on fundamental and applied aspects. Example topics:

    1. Biofilms and interaction with surfaces (biocorrosion, biofouling, membranes, bioleaching, bio-electrochemical systems, biofilms in medical devices)
    2. Water and wastewater treatment (wastewater, drinking water, and mining wastewater)
    3. Biofilm modelling (metabolic, reactors)
    4. Biofilm ecology (EPS, bioremediation, marine biofilms, drinking water distribution systems, sampling and quantification methodologies).
    5. Biofilms as hosts for pathogenic organisms

    Management and control of unwanted biofilms
