                                 BIOFILM

                     ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

Announcing the launch at the beginning of March, 1996 of a new
ONLINE-ONLY journal.                    

The biofilm community is a highly active group, encompassing
many disciplines and applications, from engineering to
physiology, modelling to medicine. We have felt for some time
that a publication vehicle to cover these multidisciplinary
interests would be scientifically productive, allowing cross
fertilisation of ideas between the different interest groups.

Accordingly, we are now issuing a call for papers from
scientists in the whole of this broad area. Papers will be
welcomed on, for example, studies on water treatment, dental
practice, medicine, corrosion, ecological investigations and
waste treatment, PROVIDED THAT BIOFILMS ARE A CENTRAL FEATURE
OF THE STUDY. Equally welcome will be papers about the
microbiology, biochemistry, chemical composition, physical
structure, bioengineering use, modelling, simulation and
biotechnological aspects of biofilms in the above and other
relevant areas, as well as papers describing the methodologies
of investigation. Accepted papers will be published
immediately on acceptance, paper by paper. 

The journal will be published by Bioline Publications system
on the Internet, without hardcopy equivalent, apart from archiving purposes.
** Access routes to Bioline are listed below. Papers will be delivered 
directly to the subscriber's computer by Email or can be viewed on-line
via the World Wide Web (URL below).

An International Advisory Board is established and offered
papers will be rigorously peer reviewed.
