ISBP 2016 - 15th International Symposium on Biopolymers
by Frederic Augustin
Venue: 26 - 29 September 2016, Madrid, Spain
CSIC cordially invites you to attend the 2016 International Symposium on Biopolymers (ISBP2016), to be held in Madrid (Spain) from 26- 29 September. Please save these days in your agenda. ISBP is a successful congress series on biopolymers that has been held every two years since the initial meeting in Toronto 1988. ISBP will take place in the Hotel Rafael Atocha, Méndez Álvaro, 30, located in the center of Madrid, at walking distance of the main train station Atocha and directly connected to the airport.
The 15th edition of ISBP is organized by the Spanish Society of Biotechnology (SEBIOT) in collaboration with the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). The traditional spotlight of ISBP has been on biopolymers like polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), cellulose and rubber.
ISBP2016 will also extend the focus to other bio-based polymers like PLA, BioPET and others, including talks on the biotechnological production of building blocks to generate bio-based polymers (biodegradable and non-biodegradable). ISBP2016 will be specially interested in connecting cutting edge technologies like systems biology and synthetic biology to the biopolymer and bio-based polymer field.
Topics include molecular basis of biopolymer/monomer synthesis, metabolic engineering and bioprocesses, new feedstocks for bioprocesses and advanced bio-based polymers. One day of the symposium is reserved for oral presentations on commercialization of biopolymers and bio-based polymers.
Attached you can find the first version of the ISBP2016 flyer.
The official web page www.isbp2016.com will be available very soon.
We look forward to meeting you in Madrid.
