Call for Abstracts for the 5th Euro BioMAT 2019: Deadline for abstract submission: 12. November 2018

5th Euro BioMAT 2019 - European Symposium and Exhibition on Biomaterials and Related Areas, Weimar (Germany)!

Based on the huge success of the previous four Euro BioMAT Symposia in 2011 in Jena and in 2013, 2015 and 2017 in Weimar this international conference will be held every two years in the Jena-Weimar region.

The symposium Euro BioMAT 2019, 08.-09. May 2019, addresses the growing interest of science and industry in different aspects of the creation, characterization, testing and application of biomaterials and closely related areas. The motivation is not only the recent scientific progress and new challenges in this exciting, strongly interdisciplinary field of science and engineering. Materials scientists, physicists, chemists, biologists in industrial R&D as well as medical professionals are increasingly facing situations, where materials are confronted with high performance requirements and a challenging biological environment at the same time.

Much of the growth in the area of biomaterials emerged in the USA and Asia over the last years but Europe is gaining ground with a fast and steady growth in this field. The German Materials Society (DGM) and its panel of experts in biomaterials address these developments with the Euro BioMAT 2019 in Weimar.

Euro BioMAT 2019 will present and discuss the current state of progress and novel trends in development, characterization, application, testing and modelling of biomaterials in basic science and industry. In addition, this symposium will bring together experts in closely related areas, such as biomimetics, biomineralization and biopolymers.

The organizers at the DGM feel a need to serve the European biomaterials community beyond other European and world biomaterials congresses with a compact two-day meeting which brings together fascinating science and stimulating people in a delightful setting in historic Weimar in the very heart of Europe.

The programme of the Euro BioMAT 2019 will comprise of several invited plenary lectures as well as oral poster and poster presentations.
The organizers look forward to receiving many contributions for the Euro BioMAT 2019.

The following topics will be discussed:

  • A8 Imaging of biomaterials

B Biological response to biomaterials:

  • B1 Biofilms & antimicrobial biomaterials
  • B2 Biocompatibility
  • B3 Biointerfaces and microenvironments
  • B4 Clinical performance and microenvironments
  • B5 Multi-functional biomaterials

C Biomaterials applications:

  • C1 Current and future challenges for the MedTech industry
  • C2 Dental materials
  • C3 Drug and gene delivery
  • C4 Innovation in fabrication including 3D printing / additive manufacturing / biofabrication of biomaterials 
  • C5 Responsive and smart biomaterials
  • C6 Tissue engineering / regenerative medicine 

D Biopolymer-based biomaterials:

  • D1 Special Session „Biopolymer-based biomaterials“
