Contributions are sought on fundamental studies, applied studies, and studies that bridge between fundamental and applied. Research reports on a range of aspects of biofilms in drinking water treatment, distribution, and quality are solicited. Examples of topics include:

  • Biofilms in distribution systems and in-premise plumbing
  • Biofilms as hosts for pathogenic organisms,
  • Biofilm formation potential of materials and surfaces as a source of nutrition
  • Biological stability of water and regrowth during water distribution and water storage
  • Biofouling and biocorrosion
  • Biological drinking water treatment
  • Biofiltration
  • Biofilms on membranes: Beneficial use (e.g. in gravity driven membrane filtration or membrane biofilm reactors) and biofouling
  • Micropollutants in drinking water: Degradation and production during treatment and distribution
  • Management and control of unwanted biofilms
