ICBB Information

General Information

    We are pleased to announce the 2017 International Conference on Advances in Biomedicine and Biomedical Engineering & 6th International Conference on Biotechnology and Bioengineering (ICABBE2017&6th ICBB)  will be held from September 26, 2017 to September 28 in Offenburg, Germany.
Aims and Scope
    The main objective of this conference is to bring people together from diverse disciplines to review progress and to exchange ideas in all aspects of biotechnology and bioengineering, with topics ranging from New Approaches and Concepts in Biotechnology; Cell & Cancer Immunology; Genomics and Molecular Biology; Enzyme and Protein Engineering; Biomedicine & Pharmaceutical Biotechnology; Bioinformatics and Systems Biology; Biomedical engineering, Biomedical techniques & technologies and other related aspects. Detailed themes please refer here.
Why attend
    The conference is designed to promote interactive discussions at both the talks and poster sessions, and will feature a mix of invited speakers drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. The conference is therefore purposely broad to cover all aspects of biotechnology and bioengineering, a unique combination that is highly appreciated by the participants. Given the excellent line up of speakers and the meeting’s outstanding reputation, this is a ‘must’ attend for anyone interested in cutting edge research in biotechnology and bioengineering.
Publications
    After peer review and author's intention, selected papers will be considered for publishing in international journal with ISSN and DOI, and will be submitted to major databases for index. More details about submission please refer here.
Language
    The Conference will be conducted in English Language and no simultaneous translation will be provided.
Program & Visit
     The conference will last two days from Sep. 27 to 28. Program at a glance please refer here. There will be the "Ortenau Wine Festival" in Offenburg on Sep. 29. Moreover, if participants prefer, we will organize activities for academic investigation to Strasbourg, France; and/or visiting the European Molecular Biology Laboratory-Heidelberg, etc. (details)
