Biointerfaces International 2018

August 14-16, 2018
Zurich, Switzerland

Start Date: August 14, 2018
End Date: August 16, 2018


Pre-Conference Seminar – Monday, 13 August 2018, providing participants with an introduction and a long-lasting educational and personal experience in the field of the conference and beyond.


Biological surfaces and interfaces: where synthetic materials and biological systems interact with
each other – one of the most innovative and expanding areas of science and Technology.

Biointerfaces International 2018 Conference follows a special format: it aims to build bridges
across relevant application areas, between science & engineering, among scientific discovery, Innova-
tion & technology, and between senior scientists & early-career researchers. Both internationally highly
renowned and young scientists from academia, industry and clinics present their latest, often unpublis-
hed scientific findings and technological breakthroughs. All speakers begin their talks with a General
introduction that does not require specialised knowledge to follow. The focus of this conference is edu-
cation across the many fields of relevance to biological surfaces and interfaces


Important Deadlines:

– Deadline for Abstract Submission 1st May 2018
