International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation Symposium (IBBS 18)

COVID-19 Update:

I hope that all of you are well and that you are staying safe in light of the unprecedented global pandemic. This is the message that I hoped I would not have to write, but the world has changed. Borders are closed, travel is restricted, economies are devastated, and many people are ill. These factors preclude the efficient implementation of an international gathering in the Fall of 2020. More importantly, given the remarkable stresses that our members are experiencing, it seems only prudent to postpone IBBS18 for a calendar year.

The new dates for IBBS18 are: 7-10 September 2021

Please make note of the new dates. The meeting will still be held at Montana State University, in Bozeman, Montana, USA. The website ( will remain open for periodic updates and for meeting logistics.

“Microbes, Man and the Environment: Societal Challenges and the Role of Microorganisms in the Anthropocene.”

The Council of the International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation Society (IBBS) is delighted to announce the Society’s 18th Triennial Symposium, IBBS18, to be held on the campus of Montana State University, Bozeman, MT, USA from 7th to 10th September 2020.

Further information on the programme, speakers and how to register is now available online.
