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.

Abstracts for new papers are invited by 31 July 2020

Please note:

Existing accepted abstracts will automatically be included in the oral and poster programmes as advised.

Submission is open to authors who have not previously submitted an abstract: New submissions will be reviewed by at least three referees and ranked alongside abstracts already submitted including those held in reserve for oral presentations.

Authors that have previously been rejected for presentation should not resubmit their abstract.

We have a special interest in papers on “Rapid methods for the detection of viruses" and we will add a new section topic on this to the Congress.

New abstracts are invited on the following themes by 31July 2020. Accepted authors will be required to register by 29 August 2020

  • Rapid methods for the detection of viruses
  • Bioelectronics (including biocomputing, bio-fuel and photovoltaic cells, and electronic noses)
  • Commercial biosensors, manufacturing and markets
  • DNA- and nucleic acid-based sensors and aptasensors
  • Enzyme-based biosensors
  • Immunosensors
  • Lab-on-a-chip and multiplexed sensors

Awards: Submitted abstracts are eligible for the prestigious Biosensors & Bioelectronics Award. A highly-regarded Best Poster Award is given to the poster judged to be the best in each session.

Excellent publication opportunities: Authors of all accepted abstracts are invited to submit full papers for publication in a special issue of Biosensors & Bioelectronics, Biosensors & Bioelectronics: X or Sensing and BioSensing Research, subject to the relevant peer-review process. View special issue information

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.

If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference.

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 acknowledgement 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 email the Conference Content Executive, with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.

If you have an accepted paper that you wish to be re-assigned to the new theme “Rapid methods for the detection of viruses”, please also contact: Content-BIOS2020@elsevier.com
