Latest News

The 17th International Biotechnology Symposium (IBS 2016) scientific program committee has announced its final call for poster abstract submissions, closing Thursday 1 September 2016.

This is the first time IBS 2016 has been held in Australia. The event gathers the scientific and industrial communities of biotechnologists and green chemists to explore the most advanced issues in biotechnology, including agri-business, animal, food and aquaculture; industrial and environmental biotechnology; pharmaceutical, medical and molecular biotechnology; bioenergy and bio-refinery; bio-economy, bio-policy and investment; and, biosensors and nanotechnology.

The poster display will be placed in the conference venue during IBS 2016 and will be part of the International BioFest 2016. This event presents three major conferences coming together in one week in one place as one integrated network and promises to be the largest-ever gathering in the Australian life sciences. In addition to IBS 2016, International BioFest will include AusBiotech 2016, Australia’s flagship life sciences conference; and Australia Biotech Invest 2016, Australia’s life sciences investment and partnering showcase.

By contributing to IBS 2016 and the International BioFest, you can access a valuable opportunity to share your research with the global biotechnology community, including fellow researchers, members of industry, key thought leaders and investors.

Abstracts must be submitted through the online portal. They are to be no more than one A4 page in length and must meet the eligibility requirements as outlined in the submission guidelines.

Notification of acceptance will be issued the week commencing 12 September 2016 providing time for successful applicants to register for the conference and organise necessary travel arrangements. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted are responsible for all costs including registration, travel, accommodation, any costs associated with preparation and presentation of the abstract and poster, or any other costs associated with attendance at the event.  Accepted authors must register to attend IBS 2016 by Friday 30 September 2016.
