Bacteria switch from a nomadic form of life to biofilms when they come in contact with surfaces. Biofilms are complex and robust multicellular communities of bacteria that can be either detrimental, leading to severe infections, or beneficial, such as in plant-microbe associations. Once formed, biofilms are extremely hard to eradicate. Forming virtually on any surface and thus affecting numerous aspects of human life, biofilm research calls for an interdisciplinary effort. This workshop will bring together experts from biology, experimental and theoretical biophysics, and medicine to encourage lively discussions on the multifaceted topic of biofilms.
