  Information - BG6.0/SSS24 Geomicrobiology: mineralization, weathering and biofilms (co-organized by SSS)

Event Information
The objective of this session is to gather multidisciplinary communications
in the field of interaction between minerals/materials and microorganisms - from laboratory experiments and field observations or measurements to modelling.

It is obvious that all these fascinating processes are not clearly understood yet and require a big effort from a large community of scientists to evaluate
the real impact of microbial communities on the reactions and transfers that take place in the biosphere. Applied Sciences are welcome!
We are looking forward to your collaboration with this project.

Preliminary List of Solicited Speakers
Damien Feron (Commissariat l'Energie Atomique), France
"The electrochemistry in the biodegradation of metalic materials"

Prof. Geoff Gadd, University of Dundee, UK
"Bacterial and fungal transformations of minerals, metals and metalloids"
