A technical Exchange meeting was held at The Frontier Research Triangle Park on September 15-16, 2015. The purpose of the meeting was to assess the current state and emerging opportunities in studies of intracellular and extracellular bacterial electron transfer. One specific goal was to establish interdisciplinary discussions between scientists and engineers with different expertise, ranging from the microbiology of electroactive multispecies communities to emerging theoretical descriptions of charge carrier transport in soft matter conductors and semiconductors. A series of presentations was provided on the first day, as listed in Appendix 1. Relevant summary comments are provided in Appendix 2. Attendants included scientists and engineers from academia and DoD laboratories. The second day of the Meeting focused on drawing conclusions and perspectives that summarize some of the most critical knowledge gaps and relevant opportunities for technological implementation.
