The 9th International Bioerosion Workshop (IBW) will be held at the Istituto Superiore per la Conservazione ed il Restauro (ISCR), Rome, Italy, on 23rd‐27th October 2017.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together scientists from around the world to share information on Bioerosion. The First International Bioerosion Workshop was held in Bornholm, Denmark in 1996, organized by Richard Bromley and Ulla Asgaard. The last IBW was hosted by the Department of Geography, Karoly Eszterhazy College in Eger, Hungary in 2014, organized by Árpád Dávid and Rozália Fodor.
The 9th IBW will focus on different aspects of bioerosion presented in three main topics: Bioerosion of natural and artificial substrates: stone, wood, building materials, coral reefs; Bioerosion and Cultural Heritage: stone and wooden artefacts in underwater and subaerial environments; and Bioerosion in Palaeoecology, Paleontology and Palaeoichnology.
The workshop will discuss the theme of bioerosion in Cultural Heritage for the first time. Participants will make new contacts and will have ample opportunities to share research outcomes, points of view and new techniques.
Participants are required to choose a presentation on one or more of the themes.
The workshop will comprise talks, poster sessions and field trips. We will provide meeting and laboratory facilities where the participants can examine and discuss the organisms involved in the alteration and breakdown of hard substrates. Therefore you are encouraged to bring along any samples, images and reprints for discussion.
Due to several kind requests, the Organisation Committee have decided to extend the deadline for abstract submission till February 15th, 2017. In the meantime, the acceptance process will be in progress and we would appreciate receiving your abstracts as early as possible.
Instructions regarding abstract submission are available here.
The Organisation Committee is pleased to remind you that the journal International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation will dedicate a Special Issue to the Workshop. The 9th IBW Scientific Committee will chose the best contributions presented (about 20) that will undergo the peer reviewing process of the journal.
