ICBB2018 | 8th Intl. Conf. on Biotechnology and Bioengineering

2018 International Conference on Biotechnology and Bioengineering (8th ICBB 2018)

8th ICBB, October 24-26, 2018  Budapest, Hungary


General Information

    Welcome to the 2018 International Conference on Biotechnology and Bioengineering (8th ICBB) which will be held in Budapest, Hungary during October 24-26, 2018. 
The conference is co-organized by Asia-Pacific Association of Science, Engineering and Technology, Szent Istvan UniversityCentre for Agricultural Research - Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Chinese Journal of Biologicals, in collaboration with multiple academic affiliations.
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 & Methods; Cell and Immunology; Genomics & Molecular Biology; Biomaterials, Biopolymers & Bioenergy; Biomedicine, Pharmacology & Toxicology; Biomedical Engineering & Techniques; and other related aspects. This year the 2018 International Conference on Advances in Nanotechnology and Materials Science (ICANMS2018) will be held in conjunction with ICBB as topic session Biomaterials, Biopolymers & Bioenergy.
Why attend
    ICBB 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.
    After peer review, all accepted abstract will be published in conference abstract book. 
    The conference will be conducted in English Language and no simultaneous translation provided.
     The conference will last two days from Oct. 25 to 26, 2018. The conference program at a glance can be visited here.
