Biofilms 8
2018-05-27 to 2018-05-29
Aarhus, Denmark

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.

Main topics

  1. Molecular mechanisms in biofilm formation
  2. The biofilm matrix
  3. Bacterial attachment
  4. Modelling biofilms
  5. Biofilm ecology
  6. Evolution in biofilms
  7. Biofilm control
  8. Novel methods for biofilm characterization

18th International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections -ISSSI 2018
2018-08-23 to 2018-08-26
Copenhagen, Denmark
Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 18th International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections, which will be held on 23 - 26 August 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The ISSSI 2018 will cover a number of interdisciplinary subjects regarding staphylococci and staphylococcal infections. Sessions will be presented by the world’s leading experts in each of the research fields. Oral and poster sessions will be an integral part of the program as well, and all delegates are invited to submit abstracts. The wide range of social event activities should create excellent opportunities for the participants to build friendships and start new collaborations.
The venue of ISSSI 2018 is the newly opened Maersk Tower, which belongs to the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. It is located next to the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) and near the city centre of Copenhagen. See more information on the Maersk Tower.
We hope the symposium will serve as a platform for productive debate, smooth joint research efforts, and mutual exchange of experiences from the research field and look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen in 2018.

Kind regards from the Local Organising Committee:

26th International ICFMH Conference - FoodMicro 2018
2018-09-03 to 2018-09-06
Berlin, Germany

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).
