The Microbiology Institute of Academia Sinica is kindly inviting you to participate in the 2013 International Conference on Science, Engineering and Technology (ICSET), held July 10-13, 2013 in London, United Kingdom.
This multidisciplinary conference aims to provide a challenging forum and vibrant opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to share their original research results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues.
The theme of this year's conference is “Colors of Science: New Trends and Directions”. Consistent with that theme, the presentations will highlight innovative strategies to improve the different branches or "colors" of scientific research in relation to Science, Engineering and Technology in general.
Presentations on effective strategies regarding science trends, outcome and performance measures are also planned. Based on their success at last year’s conference, some of this year’s topics will allow opportunities for smaller group discussions through the use of small group breakout sessions. We have two workshop options planned for this year, one focusing upon science research ethics and one focused on developing and implementing various technology programs.
Depending on their importance, originality, quality, relevance and other editorial considerations, eligible research articles will also be invited for publication in the GSTF International Journal on Bioinformatics and Biotechnology (JBio) which is indexed by EBSCO, CrossRef, Proquest and Cabell's Directories. All accepted papers will be published in the next issue of the CJB Journal.
- Ernesto Bertarelli, Ares Life Science AG.
- Michael D.West, CEO of Biotime
- Prof. Iain Mattaj, Director-General, European Molecular Biology Laboratory, EMBL
