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 ever 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.
We encourage all who are interested in the clinical practice and research on infections in immunocompromised host to attend the 20th ICHS Symposium in Athens, Greece June 17-19, 2018. Many symposia, plenary sessions, poster sessions will provide the attendee with opportunities to meet with outstanding leaders and clinical experts in the broad field of infectious diseases and immune-deficiencies while covering such diverse topics as new diagnostics, infections in transplant recipients, invasive fungal infections and resistance, treatment of multi-resistant bacteria, infectious complications in immunocompromised children, life-threatening infections and intensive care in neutropenic cancer patients ,antiviral and antifungal immune responses in compromised hosts, prophylaxis and treatment of viral infections in immunocompromised hosts, and others.
The 12th International Scientific Conference on Probiotics, Prebiotics, Gut Microbiota and Health – IPC2018 will be held during the 18th – 21st June 2018 in Budapest Marriot Hotel, Hungary. IPC is the worldwide biggest scientific conference that focuses on probiotics, prebiotics, gut microbiota and health. The scientific programme will focus on current advances in the research, production and use of probiotics and prebiotics with particular focus on their role in maintaining health and preventing diseases.
The 26th International ICFMH Conference - FoodMicro 2018 will take place in the Henry Ford Building of the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, from 3rd to 6th September 2018.
The field of food microbiology has changed rapidly in the last decades and new methods help scientists all over the world to master the challenges of the 21st century. Socioeconomic changes necessitate changes in food production, supply, and handling. Previously unknown problems concerning spoilage and transmission of pathogens occur worldwide. Moreover, functional and novel foods gain importance and probiotic bacteria are in the focus of international research.
To merge these different research areas “Biodiversity of Foodborne Microbes” has been chosen as the common theme of the conference. Participants will be offered an excellent programme, demonstrating scientific diversity and subject depth. This will be achieved by utilizing the scientific expertise of the selected national and international committees, including the members of the International Committee on Food Microbiology and Hygiene (ICFMH).
