All abstracts will be published in a Book of Abstracts (with ISBN).
Selected reviews derived of oral presentations will appear in a Special Issue of the journal of Biotechnology Advances (Elsevier, ISSN 0734-9750, 5-year Impact Factor: 11.847). Biotechnology Advances is a review journal which considers all aspects of the multidisciplinary field. The scope includes biotechnology principles and applications in industry, agriculture, medicine, environmental concerns and regulatory issues. The symposium participants who are delivering oral presentation and are interested to publish review are requested to send a short abstract of the intended review (not identical with abstract of oral presentation) up to March, 30, 2020 in electronic form by e-mail to the editors in of this special issue Jan.Kas@vscht.cz and Y.Chisti@massey.ac.nz. The recommendation or refusal of the topic proposal will be announced at latest on April 30, 2020. The recommendation of the submission of the approved review topic does not mean review acceptance. All reviews will have to pass regular peer review process. Thus all potential review writers are required to read carefully the Instruction for authors and to follow them closely.
The reviews will be submitted by the regular Elsevier system. It is only necessary to note that the paper is submitted for special Biotechnology Advances issue „SI: Biotechnology Novelties“.
For reading the reviews already published in Biotechnology Advances, including of those from previous symposia (Biotechnology Advances, Volume 31, Issue 1 ,pp. 1-128 (January–February 2013 and Volume 33, Issue 6, Part 2, November 2015, Volume 36, Iss.3, May/July 2018) see here.

The participants of the Biotech 2020 Symposium will have the option to submit a mini-review or an original research article to the Special Issue of the journal Folia Microbiologica (Springer, ISSN 1874-9356, 5-year Impact factor 1.641) named „Applied Microbial Biotechnology“. Folia Microbiologica covers all aspects of general, soil, medical and industrial microbiology, as well as some areas of biotechnology and immunology. It exploits practical applications of both cutting-edge methods and established methods that show promise in practical applications in the field of microbiology and biotechnology, with outreach to health and medicine, animal husbandry, agriculture or environmental sciences. The coverage includes cutting-edge methods and promising new topics as well as studies using established methods that exhibit promise in practical applications. We invite the symposium participants who are interested to publish their work in this special issue to send a short outline of the intended contribution in advance to get the topic approved. Please address your questions and communication concerning potential topics to Dr. Pavla Bojarová (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Assistant Editor of the Journal.
