The IBEC annual symposium brings together high-profile international experts for an open forum for interdisciplinary discussions and networking.

The Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC), is an interdisciplinary research centre, based in Barcelona, that conducts excellent interdisciplinary research at the frontiers of engineering and life sciences in order to generate new knowledge by putting together fields like nanomedicine, biophysics, biotechnology, tissue engineering and the applications of health information technology.

The 13th IBEC Symposium will focus on one of our three main areas of application of research at IBEC: Future and Precision Medicine.

Although we would have loved to meet everyone in person, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the uncertainty that we are living, this edition of the IBEC Symposium will be celebrated online. We hope that this will bring IBEC other opportunities such as increasing the participation of people from other institutions and the visibility of the research being done at IBEC.

We will use this online platform where all the talks will be streamed and posters will be available. To adapt to the online format, the Symposium will be divided into two days.

All the scientific community is invited to participate. Attendees from IBEC and abroad are welcome to present their research in a poster format. Moreover, some of these contributions will be selected by the scientific committee for an oral flash presentation.

Additionally, attendees are invited to present their research in a short video to be uploaded to the IBEC YouTube channel. The most popular video will win a prize.
