Call for Papers

Call for Papers for the 3rd International Conference on Bioscience and Biotechnology (BioTech -2018)

The scientific and organizing committee warmly invite participants of the 3rd International Conference on Bioscience and Biotechnology (BioTech-2018), scheduled to be held from 8th-9th of March 2018 in Colombo, Sri Lanka under the theme “Pursuing innovation in Bioscience and Biotechnology” to submit abstracts for consideration as oral or poster presentation.

The importance of bioscience and biotechnology with regard to, health and medicine, agriculture, natural product isolation and application, bioenergy generation and application, bioremediation and a host of other areas has never been more important. However, making advances accessible to a global population requires further advancement of biotechnological technologies and applications such that these can be used across different needs and at a cost that makes them accessible.

Bio Tech 2018 aims to bring together leading academics, industrialists, research scientists and research scholars to exchange and share their knowledge, experiences and research results across multiple aspects of Bioscience and Biotechnology. The meeting will also provide a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, scientists and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Bioscience and Biotechnology.

Early career support: The meeting intends to offer a limited number of bursaries to support the attendance of early career scientists (for example, MSc and PhD students, Postdocs). If you wish to be considered for a bursary please indicate this when submitting your abstract and explain why attendance at the conference is important for you and why support should be provided for you.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to
