The symposium Euro BioMAT 2021, 05 - 06 May 2021 addresses the growing interest of science and industry in the different aspects of the creation, characterization, testing and application of biomaterials, and closely related areas. The motivation is not only the recent scientific progress and new challenges of this exciting, strongly interdisciplinary field of science and engineering. Materials scientists, physicists, chemists, biologists in research and industrial R&D as well as medical professionals are increasingly facing situations, where materials are confronted with high-performance requirements and a challenging biological environment at the same time.
Much of the growth in the area of biomaterials emerged in the USA and Asia over the last years, but Europe is gaining ground with a rapid and steady growth in this field. The German Materials Society (DGM) and its panel of experts in biomaterials address these developments with the Euro BioMAT 2021.
The Euro BioMAT 2021 will present and discuss the current state of progress and novel trends in the development, characterization, application, testing, and modeling of biomaterials in basic science and industry. In addition, this symposium will bring together experts in closely related areas, such as biomimetics, biomineralization, and biopolymers.
The organizers at the DGM feel a need to serve the worldwide biomaterials community beyond other European and world biomaterials congresses with a compact two-day meeting which brings together fascinating science and inspiring people. The program of the Euro BioMAT 2021 will comprise several invited plenary lectures as well as lectures and oral poster presentations. The organizers look forward to receiving contributions to the Euro BioMAT 2021.
The following main topics will be discussed:
- A Structure and properties of biomaterials
- B Biological response to biomaterials
- C Biomaterials applications
- D Biopolymer based biomaterials
In particular young scientists are encouraged to actively contribute to the conference by submitting an abstract.
On our homepage, you can view our confirmed plenary speakers.
We look forward to seeing you at the 6th Euro BioMAT 2021!
