Meet us @ Biosensors 2021

The World Congress on Biosensors is the largest and most well-established conference in the field, attracting around a thousand attendees from industry, academe and government organisations. For 30 years, this meeting has catalysed interactions to further this ever-expanding area. Biosensors harness the exquisite recognition capabilities of biological systems and combine them with physicochemical transducers to deliver simple, easy to use diagnostic systems for an ever-expanding range of applications to improve health, wellbeing and the environment. We are delighted to bring this year’s Congress to Korea, which is playing a key role in driving some of the most exciting new commercial applications in biochips, wearable sensors and telecommunication interfaces.


NextGenMicrofluidics presented by scientific coordinator Martin Smolka, JOANNEUM RESEARCH ForschungsGmbH at Biosensors 2021 on 26-29th July 2021!


Abstract submission are open until 31 March 2021.

Meet us @ MNE 2021

MNE is going to take place from 20 – 23 September 2021 in Turin, Italy!


MNE2021 will be the 47th International Conference in a series that started in Cambridge in 1975, and was held most recently in Braga (2017),Copenhagen (2018) and Rhodes (2019).

The MNE2020 conference in Leuven had to be cancelled because of the COVID-19 outbreak, but we are now building a new fantastic edition in Torino which will represents for micro and nano engineers and scientists the best showcase for the technology advancement achieved over the last two years.

Micro and Nano Engineering (MNE) is the flagship event of the international Micro and Nano Engineering society (iMNEs) and the premium international conference on:

  • micro/nanofabrication and manufacturing techniques
  • application of micro/nanostructures, devices and microsystems into electronics, photonics, energy, environment, chemistry and life sciences.

Meet us @ NanoBioConference 2021

2nd International Conference on Nanotechnologies and Bionanoscience (NanoBio 2021) taking place in Aquila Atlantis Hotel, at the heart of Heraklion City, Crete in 06-10 September 2021.

The 2nd International conference on Nanotechnologies and Bionanoscience (NanoBio 2021) – aims to capitalize on the rapid growing and interconnected fields of Nanotechnology and Bioscience, drawing in and providing an interdisciplinary forum for scientists and engineers from academia and industry. Among the main objectives is to discuss on the forefront of research and to address the theory, design and development of advanced materials and nanotechnologies in relation to the field of energy and health applications. The conference comprises six workshops focusing on the development of novel nanomaterials, bionanosystems for tissue engineering and healthcare, innovative solar cells, nanophotonics, nanomedicine, bioelectronics and lab-on-chip systems. NanoBio 2021 will include world leading Invited Speakers together with experts and stakeholders from academia and industry. Their talks  will be a platform for innovation from early-career researchers, young investigators and entrepreneurs. We envisage that the conference will provide an ideal environment to develop new collaborations and opportunities to meet the experts and stakeholders of the rapidly growing fields of Nanotechnology and Bionanoscience. Looking forward to meeting you in Heraklion. “

Meet us @ APTAMERS 2021

Meeting focus: Therapeutic, diagnostic, analytical and basic research applications of aptamers

Provisional meeting format: The meeting will run over two days. Each day will consist of invited presentations by senior scientists, and submitted short presentations by emerging researchers and students. There will also be an opportunity to present posters digitally, including flash-talks by poster presenters.

  • Day 1: 14th April 2021, 1400h BST (to be coordinated by Dr Maureen McKeague, McGill University, Montreal, Canada)
  • Day 2: 15th April 2021, 0800h BST (to be coordinated by Dr Sarah Shigdar, Deakin University,  Melbourne, Australia)

Invitation to submit an abstract: We invite emerging aptamer researchers and students to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations. We particularly encourage final year doctoral students and early/mid career postdoctoral researchers/junior group leaders to submit oral abstracts, as we believe this virtual event will provide their research an excellent exposure, critical analysis by attending senior researchers and new career opportunities.
