1st International Conference on Environmental, Industrial and Applied
Microbiology (BioMicroWorld-2005)
March 15-18th 2005, Badajoz, Spain

Dear Colleague,

further to our recent invitation to you to take part of the forthcoming
BioMicroWorld-2005 International Conference, we would like to remind that
if you intend to take part of it, deadline for submission of abstracts 
is November 22nd (next Monday). While we will be able to accept some late
abstract during the whole next week, this will be possible only for POSTERS
presentations. Next monday is the absolute deadline for 
submission of proposals for oral presentations.

Below please find some important informations about the conference. All the
information is being continously updated at the website


Main topics of the Conference are 

- Environmental Microbiology, Marine Microbiology, Water/Aquatic
Microbiology, Geomicrobiology 
- Industrial Microbiology - Future Bioindustries 
- Food Microbiology 
- Cell Engineering 
- Pharmaceutical Microbiology 
- Agriculture, Soil, Forest Microbiology 
- Structure and Morphogenesis 
- Analytical Techniques, Imaging Techniques, Microscopy 
- Microbial Physiology, Metabolism and Gene Expression 
- Microbial Biotechnology 
- Aerospace Microbiology, Astro(micro)biology 
- Quantitative Models and Bioinformatics in Microbiology 
- Methods in Basic and Applied Microbiology 
- Medical Microbiology 
- Microbiology Education 


Submission of abstracts: November 22th, 2004 (abstracts for posters
presentations will be accepted until November 27th)
Submission of Full Papers for publication: On site 


1. Book
A multi-volume book entitled "Recent Advances in Multidisciplinary Applied
Microbiology. Biological, Physical, Chemical and Engineering Aspects" will
be published 
including Full papers of works (oral, posters) presented at the conference.
The book will be published by an international publisher (now in
negotiations with Elsevier Science), in order to give it a broad
distribution and is intended to serve as a good reference book of the state
of the art of Modern Applied Microbiology as of 2005. Submission of Full
Papers is optional.

2. Abstracts Book 
A separate Abstracts Booklet will be published with abstracts of works
presented at the Conference. It will be distributed at the beginning of the

3. International Journals special issues 
Agreements have been arranged with several international journals, in order
to produce special issues based on very good papers presented at the
Conference. Manuscripts must be delivered during the 
Conference, according to the instructions we will give in due course for
each journal. All papers will be strictly reviewed and treated as regular
papers. Our goal is to produce high quality and high impact special 
issues based on some of the best conference papers. Papers submitted for a
journal special issue and rejected (for scientific/editorial/space
reasons), can be considered for inclusion in the Book. Please refer to the 
conference website for details. 

Journals considering publication of special issues include Antonie van
Leeuvenhoek (Springer,confirmed), Enzyme and Microbial Technology
(Elsevier,confirmed), International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation 
(Elsevier), Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces (Elsevier,confirmed),
Geomicrobiology Journal (Elsevier), FEMS Microbiology Ecology (Elsevier),
Microscopy and Microanalysis (American Microscopy Society, 
confirmed), Micron (Elsevier).
