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

This interdisciplinary and international conference is a unique opportunity

 to strengthen bridges between different disciplines of the life sciences do-
 main, particularly between the University Hospital Zurich and the Univer-
 sity of Zurich with the ETH.  In addition to the diversity of science and
 engineering, special emphasis will be laid on the gender-balanced educa-
 tion of students and early-career scientists, which encourages and
 allows them to emerge as independent scientists.

, Institute of Anesthesiology,
University Hospital Zurich


Contributed talks (20 min) will be assigned on the basis of submitted abstracts. There will be a large poster session, space for an industry exhibition, and many occasions for participants to meet, discuss, exchange ideas and find partners for future collaborations.


Important deadline for scientific contributors:

 - Deadline for Abstract Submission Extended
   => Did you miss the original abstract submission deadline? Do you have late-breaking science you would like to present? We still accept a number of late submissions for poster contributions.

 - The presenting author of an abstract must register for and attend the conference.
   Please register before submitting your Abstract. Learn more

Important for exhibitors:

 - Biointerfaces International provides an unmissable opportunity to contribute to key
   areas of debate and increase your company profile:
   => Limited number of pitching opportunities for exhibitors available
