Following the successes of the past 7 editions, we are proud to introduce and welcome you to the 8thSymposium on Biodegradable Metals in Estérel resort, in Laurentide region, 75 km North of Montréal , from Saturday May 14 to Tuesday May 17, 2016. This year again, the symposium will emphasize its academic-conference-style with an openly discursive format, rather than a lecture and question–answer format. This style will be completed by the traditional discussions and the unconventional daily free-time sessions early in the afternoon. Behind the presentations, this symposium aims to discuss open questions on the session topics, new approaches, background knowledge, and personal views among the participants. Furthermore, discussions at the poster session will focus on specific topics and will encourage the participants to raise critical questions or help each other advancing the field of biodegradable metals.
The resort environment, in a wild and (not-yet-highly) touristic regions of north of Montréal will complete the experience we intend to offer to the attendees. The location was especially selected for bringing the attendees in a new region to explore, know and be inspired from. Please join us in deepen our knowledge in the field and discovering this side of the world!
As you certainly know, the 10th World Biomaterials Congress (www.wbc2016.org) will be held at the Palais des Congrès, downtown Montreal. Please note that the 8th Biometal 2016 will bring you in a completely different environment, pursuing its typical style of an isolated, focus-on-networking and providing several occasions for exchanging, discussing and share ideas on the exciting field of biodegradable metals.
If potentially interested, we strongly suggest you to do not wait last minute to register, the number of attendees is limited and registration will be treated on the first arrived – first served base.
We really hope to welcome you at the next 8th Biometal 2016 next May!
Prof. Diego Mantovani, Prof. Mark Staiger, Prof. Yufeng Zheng, Prof. Frank Witte
