Biofilms 8 is the 8th conference in a series that cover the topic of bacterial biofilms in the broadest sense. The conference focus is on the basic scientific question of how biofilms form, grow and interact with their surroundings. Hence the conference attracts researchers from the natural sciences, engineering, and health science to exchange their research on how biofilms develop, how they interact with their surroundings, and how they can be controlled in a natural, industrial, or clinical setting.

The conference is renowned for its broad and non-clinical scope, and has brought together the top biofilm researchers from Europe, North America and Asia every second year since it was launched by Prof. Hans-Curt Flemming in Vienna in 2003. The conference alternates with the conference “Eurobiofilms” which is also held every second year, and which caters more for researchers that focus on pathogenic biofilms.

The main topics to be covered at Biofilms 8 are:

  • Molecular mechanisms in biofilm formation
  • The biofilm matrix
  • Bacterial attachment
  • Modelling biofilms
  • Biofilm ecology
  • Evolution in biofilms
  • Biofilm control
  • Novel methods for biofilm characterization
