Contributions -- Abstract submission period has ended



It is our intention to publish all the accepted communications both in digital on-line format and in a book of Conference abstracts.

In a later stage after (see the link) the meeting, authors may submit full papers from the Conference communications in order to publish a special issue of the journal Acetic Acid Bacteria (a new journal of PAGEPress┬« http://www.pagepress.org/). The journal is an Open Access Publication.

Special thanks are due to PAGEPress┬« as well as to Maria Gullo, Editor in Chief of Acetic Acid Bacteria, for offering the journal as a platform for publishing all the abstracts at no cost at all. Nevertheless, the special issue with full papers will comply with the general PAGEPress┬« policy (copyright, publication fees, etc.).
