Advances in Microfluidics & Nanofluidics (AMN) 2013 is the fourth AMN conference after successful meetings previously held in Hong Kong (2009), Singapore (2011) and Dalian, China (2012). The aim of the conference is to provide a forum to promote scientific exchange and to foster closer networks and collaborative ties between leading international micro/nanofluidics researchers across various disciplines from engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, material science and biotechnology.
The scope of AMN 2013 is deliberately broad and interdisciplinary, encompassing the latest advances and the most innovative developments in micro/nanoscale science and technology. Topics range from fundamental research to its applications in chemistry, physics, biology, materials and medicine.
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are solicited across broad themes centered around fundamentals and applications of micro/nanofluidic science and technology. These include, but are not limited to
Fundamentals in microfluidics and nanofluidics
Novel fluid and transport phenomena at microscale and nanoscale dimensions
Microscale and nanoscale fluid actuation and particle manipulation mechanisms
Chemical and biological sensing techniques
Gene, protein and cell analysis and manipulation
Chemical and biochemical synthesis
Biosensors for biochemical and pathogen detection
Drug screening and drug delivery
Biomaterials synthesis and tissue engineering
Microfuel cells and other energy/environmental applications
Micro/nanofabrication methods and chip-scale integration
This unique international conference provides a platform for researchers and decision makers in biotechnology to present their latest findings and learn about all the important developments in biotechnology. Many Nobel Laureates and many world renowned experts will participate at the conference.
The conference will cover the translational nature of biotechnological research, with emphasis on both the basic science as well as its applications in industry and academia. Presentations will include major research advances in biotechnology, business development, strategic alliances, partnering trends, product opportunities, growth business models and strategies, licensing and pharmaceutical biotechnology (e.g. vaccines, CNS, cancer, antibodies), medical biotechnology, industrial biotechnology, bioprocess engineering, protein engineering, plant and environmental technologies, transgenic plant and crops, bioremediation, and microbial diversity research.
The Bioengineering Division of the American Society of Mechanical Engineering cordially invites you to attend the ASME 2013 Summer Bioengineering Conference. An outstanding scientific program is planned, including Plenary Lectures, Symposia, Workshops, and Student Paper Competitions. This year, the theme for our conference will be Translational Research. Becky Bergman of Medtronic, Inc. will be the keynote speaker at the 2013 SBC. Ms. Bergman is the Vice President of New Therapies and Diagnostics for Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management. Ms. Bergman has more than 24 years of experience in the medical technology industry including over 16 years in research technology management and product development. She has served on the advisory committee for the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. She is a fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Ms. Bergman will speak about the successful partnerships formed between academicians and industry that have helped translate technology to clinical use. In addition, there will be a workshop on Translational Research funding with representatives from NIH NIBIB and NSF Bioengineering SBIR/STTR programs.
A brief list of the themes are:
It is our great pleasure to announce that the 7th World Congress on Biomimetics, Artificial Muscles and Nano-Bio (BAMN2013) will be held on August 26-30, 2013 at Jeju Island, South Korea. As one of the highly acclaimed field, it takes place biannually in different countries all over the world.
The aim of the congress is to offer high-level lectures, extensive discussions and communications covering the state of the art on biomimetics, artificial muscles, and nano-bio technologies providing an overview on their potential applications in the industrial, biomedical and robotic fields. This conference is meant to create a necessary platform for an ongoing dialogue between researchers from different areas (chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, engineering, robotics, etc.) within biomimetics, artificial muscles and nano-bio technologies.
Welcome to the official website of the 3rd International Conference on Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers. The conference is to be held at Prague, Czech Republic during September 13-17, 2013. The conference aims at creating a forum in the field of materials research and their applications, especially for those materials that are used for sensors and devices that transduce physical properties.
Some of the main themes of the conference are:
