Montreal, QC, Canada
On behalf of the Executive Committee, we would like to welcome you to the website for the 10th World Biomaterials Congress (WBC), which will be held in Montreal May 17-22, 2016. The venue for the event is the Montreal Convention Center, located in the heart of downtown Montreal, just minutes away from the historic Old Montreal.
For the second time, and exactly 20 years later, the WBC will be held in Canada, representing a unique occasion for Canadians to proudly host our colleagues from around the world.
A key attribute of the organizational effort for the conference is reflected not only by the participation of the Canadian Biomaterials Society, but also the integral involvement from all of the other Biomaterials Societies worldwide. Working toward the success of this conference is now a proud tradition of our global community.
After multiple successes of the previous WBC, we expect to welcome to Montreal, scientists from all over the world, including academicians, industry representatives, clinicians, regulatory experts, consultants and students from a wide range of disciplines, with the traditional multidisciplinary approach that is typical of our biomaterials community.
The WBC 2016 is expected to include the themes below:
- Innovation in Fabrication
- Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine
- Biomaterials for Therapeutic and Diagnostic Delivery
- Functional Biomaterials
- Mechanics and Modelling in Biomaterials Science and Engineering
- Biomaterials and Host Response
- Specific Applications of Biomaterials
- Building Blocks
- Biomaterials in Cellular Engineering
- Surfaces and Interfaces
