SEB’S 2019 ANNUAL MEETING
Time: 2018-03-14 15:25  Click:347

From 2 – 5 July 2019, turn the heat up on your scientific experiences at SEB’s Annual Meeting in Seville, Spain at the FIBES II Conference and Exhibition Centre.

 

INNOVATE YOUR IDEAS AT SEB’S 2019 ANNUAL MEETING

SEB inspires extraordinary connections in science and its Annual Meeting is a unique opportunity to share learning and experience, build contacts and foster experimentation amongst biologists from all over the world.

In July 2019, over 800 scientists from across the globe will come together in the hottest city in southern Europe - Seville. With the scent of orange trees, the blue of the sky, the joy of the city’s festivities and the singing, playing and dancing of flamenco, Seville will intrigue and captivate you.

One of the most prestigious venues in Spain, the FIBES II Conference and Exhibition Centre provides a perfect location for SEB’s Annual Meeting. Its facilities include state of the art auditoria, plenty of breakout rooms as well as large catering areas and restaurants. The luminous marble Dome Hall of FIBES I and the waterfalls surrounding the outdoor square add grandeur to an already modern and impressive venue.

The extraordinary range of Plant, Animal and Cell biology sessions will expand your mind and create bold leaps in thinking. And with SEB’s members in Spain organising a number of sessions there will be lots of local science on offer to satisfy your curiosity.
Situated halfway between the Mediterranean and Africa, you’ll find Seville well connected and easy to get to with its modern airport, major highways and high-speed railways.

 

WELCOME TO SCIENCE ACROSS BOUNDARIES – CELL, PLANT AND ANIMAL BIOLOGY SESSIONS

The following joint Animal, Cell and Plant biology sessions will take place at SEB Seville 2019.

ANIMAL,  PLANT AND CELL BIOLOGY

FUNCTIONAL MICRO- AND NANO-STRUCTURES IN BIOLOGY

DATE: 5 JULY 2019

 

WHO SHOULD SUBMIT:

Researchers with interest in the following areas: Zoology, botany, biomechanics, surface science, engineering, biomimetics 

ORGANISERS:
  • Vladimir Katanaev (University of Lausanne, Switzerland)
  • Stanislav Gorb (University of Kiel, Germany)
SPEAKERS:
  • Silvia Vignolini (University of Cambridge, UK)
  • Uwe Erb (University of Toronto, Canada)
  • Bodo Wilts (University of Fribourg, Switzerland)
  • Di Zhang (Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China)

Various biological surfaces are known to be covered by elaborated micro- and nano-structures, serving a number of functions (e.g. anti-reflective, structural coloration, antifouling, pro- or anti-adhesive, etc.) and inspiring numerous industrial applications. The field of micro- and nano-structured biological surfaces and their applications in biomimetics exists for several decades. Yet recent years have witnessed a remarkable development in research in this field. Largely, this boost owes to the increasing interdisciplinary of approaches being applied to the study of structured bio-surfaces. Sciences as different as classical zoology and botany are inseminated with the advances in genetics and molecular biology; biologists collaborate more and more with nanotechnologists, materials scientists and engineers - all these contribute to the widening of the horizons of research on micro- and nano-structured biological surfaces, and to biomimetic and bioengineering applications of these surfaces in industry. The main goal of our session is to bring together scientists coming from distinct disciplines into this vibrant field of research. This session will ensure cross-inspiration among the different participants coming from different research fields and will boost innovation in research and eventual industrial developments.
