EURO BioMAT2013, 22.-23. April in Weimar

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt, ) Based on the huge success of the first Euro BioMAT in Jena in 2011, this international conference will be held now every two years in the Jena-Weimar Region. In 2013, beautiful Weimar with its rich cultural heritage and classical sites will be the location of the upcoming Euro BioMAT.

The symposium Euro BioMAT 2013 addresses the growing interest of science and industry in the different aspects of the creation, characterization, testing and application of biomaterials and closely related areas. The motivation are not only the recent scientific progress and new challenges of this exciting, strongly interdisciplinary field of science and engineering, but also that engineers, 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 or Asia over the last years, but Europe is gaining ground with a fast and steady growth in this field. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde (DGM) and its panel of experts (Fachausschuss) in biomaterials address these developments with the European symposium Euro BioMat 2013 in Weimar, Germany.Euro BioMat 2013 will present and discuss the current state of progress 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 DGM feel a need to serve the European biomaterials community beyond the 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 organizers look forward to receiving many contributions to the Euro BioMAT 2013.

Deadline for the submission of oral and poster presenations is 12. November 2012 and the Call for Abstracts is already available at the homepage.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Weimar 2013!
