2020 BioInterface Abstract Online Submission Form
Share |


The Surfaces in Biomaterials Foundation invites you to submit an abstract to the 2020 BioInterface Workshop & Symposium!

The 30th Annual BioInterface Workshop & Symposium will be held at the Hilton Portland Downtown in Portland, Oregon.


During our event you will be enriched by the science and the high quality of interaction that is fostered by the unique blend of industry, academic, regulatory and clinical attendees. The moderate size of the event allows you to connect, share and learn by mingling with your fellow attendees and event sponsors.


Event Highlights include a Full Day Workshop on October 21 on Entrepreneurship in Surface Science and seven technical sessions including: Analytical Chemistry, Surface Modifications and Coatings, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Cell-based and electronic hybrid medical devices, Interface of biomaterials and wound healing/infection, Drug Delivery and Imaging Advanced Technology.


All abstracts are due by March 31, 2020. If you would like to submit your abstract by email, please send to ingrid@surfaces.org

Unlike most Academic symposia, full disclosure of materials, methods, and funding sources is encouraged, but NOT required so that presenters may speak about their latest work before it is published in full detail elsewhere.

Abstracts will be published on the BioInterface 2020 website that is only accessible to registered attendees. Please submit one form per abstract submission.

Submit only ONE abstract for each presentation; do NOT submit multiple copies of the same abstract, do NOT submit in blinded format, and do include your name, your address and e-mail address on any submitted abstract.

The presenting author is expected to present the paper. Should an emergency situation occur at the time of your presentation at BioInterface 2019, please notify the Chair of your session as soon as possible. It is the presenting author's obligation to ensure that the abstract is presented.

Presenting authors MUST register and pay to attend the event. If registration is not received by August 31, 2020, the presentation will be removed from the program. Online registration will be available on the Surfaces in Biomaterials Foundation website soon.

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be e-mailed in April. The final selection of abstracts for presentation and placement of accepted abstracts in the program format will be made by the Program Committee.

Type the abstract title in upper and lower case letters. Use a concise and descriptive title.

The one-page abstract needs to address how the work described relates to the biointerface.
Abstracts accepted for podium presentation will be provided 15 minutes for didactic presentation, followed by 5 minutes for discussion. The nature of the multiple session format makes it imperative that these times limits by strictly observed by all participants. Audio-visual includes a single LCD projector, screen, podium and laptop. Your presentation must not include animation or sublinks to other programs.
