30th Anniversary World Congress on Biosensors
9-12 November 2020 | Busan Exhibition and Conference Centre, Busan, Korea
We understand you may be concerned about not being able to attend due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 situation. Rest assured that we will refund your registration fee, with no penalty, should you wish to cancel during the uncertainty of the outbreak.
The Elsevier conference team take the safety and well-being of their entire delegation and community very seriously. We will therefore be implementing a number of enhanced hygiene and cleaning measures, in collaboration with our conference venues, when our events take place. We will also of course, be following appropriate social distancing measures, to keep everyone safe throughout the conference.
This is coupled with our promise to refund your registration fee, with no penalty, should you wish to cancel during the uncertainty of the outbreak.
New dates announced: Biosensors 2020 postponed to 9-12 November 2020Read more here
As the spread of COVID-19 continues and the situation is still uncertain, Elsevier and the Congress Chairs have taken the decision to postpone Biosensors 2020 to 9-12 November 2020, in the same venue in Busan, South Korea.
We will continue to closely monitor developments, taking advice from the WHO and other agencies, but as the safety of our customers and colleagues is paramount, we feel it is pertinent to postpone until November.
Any pre-registered delegate will automatically be transferred to the new conference date in November unless you notify us that you will not be able to attend on those dates.
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.
Due to the rescheduling of the Congress, we have room for a strictly limited number of new papers from authors who have not previously submitted abstracts. Find out more here.
The three-day programme consists of daily invited plenary lectures followed by parallel sessions comprising a rigorously refereed selection of submitted papers and posters.
