5th Vienna Biomaterials Symposium
In 2012 the Vienna Biomaterials Symposium takes place for the fifth time. This year the symposium is jointly organized by Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) and University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU). In order to ensure that clinical aspects of biomaterials research are covered, the Medical University of Vienna is represented in the program committee.
The symposium aims at giving a broad overview of biomaterials from the viewpoint of materials science as well as from a clinical perspective. In addition natural biomaterials are considered as inspiration for artificial biomaterials.
The target audience of the conference includes medical scientists, (bio)chemists, biologists as well as engineers.
This year, the symposium cooperates with the young scientist forum of the European Society of Biomaterials. We therefore especially encourage scientists at the beginning of their academic career to submit abstracts.
