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). Deadline for abstract submission is the 12. November 2018


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.
The 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 following topics will be discussed:

A Structure and properties of biomaterials
A1 Bio-nano materials
A2 Bioactive materials, bioglass and calciumphosphates
A3 Biodegradable materials
A4 Bioinspired materials / biomimetic materials
A5 Biological materials and biomineralization

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“

In particular young scientists are very welcome to actively contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract.
