Welcome to Québec City

Québec City welcomes the ISSIB 2019 Symposium, July 22 to 25, 2019
Come join us for the 7th International Symposium on Surfaces and Interfaces of Biomaterials!

The serie of International Symposium on Surfaces and Interfaces of Biomaterials was conceived in 2005. The first conference (SIB2007) was held in Chengdu, China, in October 2007. Following the great success of SIB2007, the International Symposium on Surface and Interface of Biomaterials took place in Hong Kong in January 2010, in Japan in 2011, Italy in 2013, in Australia in 2015 and in China in 2017. In 2019, it will make a stop in Quebec city, a region of extreme high density of science, technology, and industries in the field of Surfaces and Interfaces, and a region of extreme beauty for its modernity and wildness, altogether.

Surfaces and interfaces in biomaterials are highly important issues in the biomaterials and tissue engineering field and form a key scientific base for the technological innovation and economic growth of our Society, wordlwide. They are at the forefront of biomaterials R & D. ISSIB-2019 aims to provide an international forum for scientists, engineers, clinicians, regulatory bodies and medical device manufacturers worldwide to present and discuss the latest scientific findings and technological developments in this area. The synthesis, characterization, testing, modeling, assessment, application, and other pertinent aspects of the surface and interface of biomaterials will be covered by the conference. ISSIB-2019 will promote multidisciplinary research and international and inter-institutional collaborations. Through the sharing of new ideas and concepts, the exchange of information and the use of emerging technologies, important issues regarding biomaterials surface and interface can and will be tackled, advancing the science and engineering of biomaterials.

Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit abstract(s)/paper(s) to ISSIB 2019 and participate in ISSIB 2019. We look forward to meeting you and all delegates from various parts of the world in Québec City in July 2019.
