28th Anniversary World Congress on Biosensors


The Biosensors & Bioelectronics Prize of US$1000 plus a free registration to the 2020 Congress is sponsored by Elsevier and is presented to the author of the paper judged the most original contribution to the congress. A pre-selection has been carried out based on submitted abstracts and the finalists have been allocated Keynote talks.

In addition, a number of Poster Awards are given: three First Place awards of US$350 will be awarded by Biosensors & Bioelectronics / Elsevier to the best poster from each session. Six further runner-up and second runner-up awards will be given supported by the ACS and US National Science Foundation.
