1st International Conference on Environmental, Industrial and Applied
Microbiology (BioMicroWorld-2005)
"Fostering Cross-disciplinary Applied Research in Microbiology and Microbial
Badajoz, Spain, March 15-18th, 2005

Dear colleague,

On behalf of the organizers, you are cordially invited to send abstracts of
your best research for presentation at the forthcoming 1st International
Conference on Environmental, Industrial and Applied Microbiology
(BioMicroWorld-2005), that will take place in March 2005 in Badajoz (Spain).

Modern microbiology includes a broad variety of scholarly approaches leading
to a better understanding of all living things at the macroscopic,
microscopic/single-cell and nanoscopic/molecular level, producing beneficial
applications in medicine, agriculture, industry, and ecology. Therefore, the
Conference will specially welcome papers reporting interdisciplinary
researchers, relating Microbiology with other Sciences as Physico/chemistry,
Materials Science, Polymer Science, Environmental Sciences, Genetics,
Pharmacology, Microscopy/Imaging Science, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology,
etc. In other words, we are specially (but not exclusivelly) interested in
reports applying the techniques, the training, and the culture of
Microbiology to research areas usually associated with other scientific and
engineering disciplines, from an applied perspective.

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
Submission of Full Papers for publication: On site


1. Proceedings 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
international distribution.

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 reached 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. Please refer to the
conference website for details.

4. 2005 Current Reviews on Applied Microbiology and Microbial Biotechnoogy
A call for mini-reviews on topics covered by the conference will be made by
the end of September. Accepted reviews will be collected in a comprehensive
international publication. Authors will receive a free copy of the
publication, and its content will be made freely available shortly after the
conference. Proposals for mini-reviews are welcome from qualified
researchers, irrespective they attend the conference or not.
