The current version of the full conference schedule is available here.

Guidelines for talk and poster authors are available here.

The conference will be structured along four key topics (click on the topic's title for more details):

  1. Frontiers in analytical and bioinformatics techniques to characterize contaminant biotransformation and microbial community characteristics
  2. Linking contaminant biotransformation to influencing factors and microbial community characteristics
  3. Adopting new knowledge for the design of next-generation biological water treatment systems
  4. Implications for prediction and regulatory assessment of biotransformation

Each topic will feature invited and contributing talks, selected from the submitted abstracts. In addition we plan four evening keynotes and two poster sessions.

Finally, there will be afternoon working groups, that will give room for (i) in-depth presentations of & discussions on essential tools, and (ii) in-depth discussions of unresolved or highly innovative aspects of contaminant biotransformation research. Working groups organizers will contact registered participants with specific requests for short, discussion-stimulating input presentations. All participants should indicate their preference for a working group until 31. March, 2019. More information here.
