AlgalBBB places a major emphasis on the latest published and unpublished technical and scientific results, along with discussion and direct interactions with broad spectrum scientists and engineers, funding sponsors, and leaders in the field from all over the world. The conference presents the work of the algae research community through a balanced set of oral presentations and posters selected from the best submissions to the conference. Our list of keynote and invited speakers includes funding agency sponsors, key industry players, and top scientists and engineers from the international community

The conference will cover all areas of emerging technologies in all areas of algal research, including microalgae, macroalgae, and cyanobacteria: synthetic biology, molecular biotechnology, biomass production, cultivation, harvesting, extraction, biorefinery, feedstock conversion, production of fine and bulk chemicals, econometrics, and sustainability analyses.

In 2024, we look forward to hearing about the new emphasis on bioengineering advances for micro- and macroalgae, advanced molecular characterization technologies (e.g., genomics, proteomics, metabolomics), new strain engineering technologies for biofuels and high value products and pharmaceuticals, advances in biomaterials, photobioreactor design and control systems, and new technologies in characterization and analysis, among others.

Special Issue

Guest editor: Dr. Michael Huesemann, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

There will be a Special Issue associated with the ALGAL BBB 2024 conference published in Algal Research.

You can submit your work through the journal submission site Editorial Manager®. When submitting your manuscript please select the article type “VSI: ALGALBBB2024. Please submit your manuscript before the submission deadline of 31 October 2024.

All submissions deemed suitable to be sent for peer review will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Once your manuscript is accepted, it will go into production, and will be simultaneously published in the current regular issue and pulled into the online Special Issue. Articles from this Special Issue will appear in different regular issues of the journal, though they will be clearly marked and branded as Special Issue articles. Please ensure you read the Guide for Authors before writing your manuscript.


This conference is organized by Elsevier.
