BES Past Sponsored Meetings

European Fuel Cell Technology & Applications Piero Lunghi Conference - EFC17
December 12th -15th , 2017, Naples, Italy
Chair: Viviana Cigolotti
The EFC is an international scientific event in the hydrogen and fuel cells industry. From the last three editions, a special session on Microbial Fuel Cells (MFCs) started and, due to the success, it passed regular session since this year. The MFC Session lasts usually more than one day, attracting an increasing number of scientists as the high quality of the works and the opportunity of to achieve an overview of the major innovations in the industry and on the innovative renewable energy, particularly in relation to future energy scenarios linked to the recent European regulatory provisions for the use of alternative fuels in transport towards the goal of decarbonisation.

Chairs: Peter Kramar

The topic of electroporation is an interdisciplinary one and is by nature in the heart of BES. The expertise of the lecturers ranges from biology, medicine, pharmacy, to physical chemistry and electrical engineering. Particular focus is on young scientists and the incorporation of practical courses.

8th International Workshop on Surface Modification for Chemical and Biochemical Sensing - SMCBS'2017
Date: 3-7 November 2017
Location: Zelechow Palace Hotel, Marszalka J. Pilsudskiego 36, 08-430 Zelechow, Poland,
Contact: Wlodzimierz Kutner (
The Workshop will be focused on the art of both chemical and non-chemical modification of solid transducer surfaces, novel methods of surface examination as well as recognition activity of the resulting bio- and chemosensors toward target analytes. The workshop is dedicated to young researchers. Tutorial lectures of renowned senior scientists, keynote lectures of top scientists in the field and broad discussion will allow these researchers to improve their knowledge on fundamentals and applications of sensors and sensing.

Journées d'éléctrochimie, JE 2017,
26.6.-29.6.2017, Bordeaux, France
Chairs: Dr. Stéphane Arbault, Prof. Neso Sojic
The “Journées d'Electrochimie” is a bi-annual conference gathering the French-speaking international community of electrochemists. Previous meetings were in Rome 2015, Paris 2013, Grenoble 2011, Sibiu 2009… Among the 9 general topics of the conference, bioelectrochemistry has always been a major one because of the large community of French-speaking scientists working in this field.

1st European Biosensor Symposium / 10th German Biosensor Symposium
20.3.-23.3.2017 Potsdam, Germany
Contact: Frank Bier, Ulla Wollenberger
This conference is mainly devoted to young researchers who want to present their research results and network with other scientists. This is accompanied by selected plenary and keynote lectures of more established scientists.
The biosensor research area has already very well developed and established besides classical techniques of bioanalysis. It is an interdisciplinary field with innovations from different areas such as materials science, nanotechnology, photonics, electrochemistry, polymer science, microsystems technology a.o. in order to generate analytical data out of biochemical and biomolecular interactions. Applications can be found mainly in medicine, environmental analysis, agricultural and food technology. Naturally the interface between the biological component and the technical system used for transduction is in the focus. Thus, the symposium will include biochemical aspects, biomimetic systems, transduction principles and devices, immobilization strategies, surface characterization methods and analytical applications.

10th International Workshop and Postgraduate Course Electroporation-Based Technologies and Treatments, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Contact: Damien Miklavcic
The workshop is devoted to the interdisciplinary topic of electroporation which was in the heart of the society from the beginning. The interdisciplinary nature of electroporation and of its applications is also reflected in the expertise of the lecturers, which ranges from biology, medicine, pharmacy, to physical chemistry and electrical engineering. Similarly broad is the range of participants expected to attend the course.

12th ISEAC International Discussion Meeting on Electrochemistry
7.-8.12.2016, Mumbai India
Contact: Suresh K. Aggarwal
The 12th ISEAC-DM-2016 is an event being organized under the auspices of Indian Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (ISEAC). During this event, different advanced topics like Biosensors, Nanomaterials, Biotechnology Applications, Ionic Liquids, Fuel Cells, etc. will be discussed. There will be UNCONFERENCE session and panel discussions for the benefit of all the delegates.

Engineering of Functional Interfaces ENFI 2016
3-5.7.2016 Wildau, Germany
Contact: Fred Lisdat
The basic idea of this workshop-like meeting is to bring together young scientists with different research tasks but some common interests in designing and constructing functional surfaces and their proper characterization. The meeting is organized in a special format since most of the participants will get the chance to explain their work in a short oral presentation. This is followed by an intensive discussion at the respective posters allowing a good overview on the different presented approaches and a more detailed exchange. Tutorial lecturers will cover different aspects of biohybrid systems starting from biomolecules via new transduction principles and innovative devices.
