Abstract Submission Deadline: Friday 11 December 2020
Oral and poster abstracts are now invited on the following topics and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system.
1. Novel biomarkers and bioreceptorsRead more
This broad theme seeks to showcase research that investigates the application of novel molecules in bio-sensing technology. Here it is about the interaction of biological molecules, the first step in a biosensor measurement whether a novel target in a sample matrix or a novel bio-capture/receptor molecule. Preference will be given to new research findings that are applied to a bio-sensing technology application. For example, the research could be focused on the application of new disease markers being used in applications such as rapid diagnostics. In essence, the focus of this theme is on the novelty of the biomarker/bioreceptor rather than the detection technology.
2. The biosensor surface and nanomaterialsRead more
All biosensors rely on detecting biological interactions on a surface. In this theme there will be an opportunity to showcase research that focuses on the sensor surface, in particular understanding the immobilisation, stabilisation and interactions of biological molecules. This theme also includes research into the application of nanomaterials on the sensor surface to enhance the performance of the biosensor which may include the integration of cell surface proteins, nucleic acids and other molecules. For example, biological molecules integrated with novel materials at the micron and nano-scales.
3. Novel detection technologiesRead more
The emphasis in this theme will be on showcasing research focusing on new and emerging detection technologies used to develop novel biosensors and biosensing applications. This could involve a wide range of transduction technologies including optical, electrochemical, piezoelectric or magnetic measurements; novel sensors for bio-imaging. Micro and nano fabrication technologies used to develop and manufacture bio-sensors. The focus of this theme is on the signal generation rather than the biomarker or application.
4. Modelling and instrumentationRead more
This theme will explore challenges associated with understanding interactions taking place in a bio-sensing application and the measurement of the signal being generated by the device. The models maybe a mathematical analysis or a visual representation of the process that produce a measurable response from the instrumentation used in an application. Also included in this theme is highlighting research in the areas of new instrumentation, signal and image processing, data analysis and communications. The focus of this theme is the understanding and measurement of the signal generated by the bio-sensing technology.
5. The application of bio-sensing technology in the real worldRead more
This theme will focus on showcasing research and technologies that have been employed in a real world setting. This may be the report of a field or clinical trial or a technology that has been is in the process of being commercialised. All sectors will be considered and includes agri-tech, health applications, security, and food quality /safety applications.
Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence. Allow at least 2 hours for your receipt to be returned to you.
Once the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference.
All authors who register for the conference may have their article considered for publication in an Elsevier journal. Acceptance of a paper for conference presentation does not guarantee subsequent acceptance for journal publication.
Abstracts of all accepted contributions will be included within the online abstract system which will be distributed to all registered conference participants.
For revisions or queries regarding papers already submitted
If you do not receive acknowledgment for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please DO NOT RESUBMIT your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please contact us with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.
