9th International Symposium on Frontiers in Biomedical Polymers (FBPS 2011)

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th International Symposium on Frontiers in Biomedical Polymers, which will be held at the CS Madeira Atlantic Resort & Sea SPA in Funchal, Madeira, one of the most beautiful islands of Portugal. The symposium series was started in 1995, and is held every other year, in different places. The aim of the Symposia is to bring together scientists in both basic and applied biomedical polymer research. Active participation from both academy,industry and clinical centers is encouraged.

In honour of Prof. Emo Chiellini and his contributions to the field of Biomedical Polymers.


If you have a keynote lecture, please be aware that your presentation must have the duration of 25 minutes plus 5 minutes for discussion and questions from the audience. If you have a short oral presentation, please be aware that your presentation must have the duration of 12 minutes plus 3 minutes for discussion and questions from the audience. Please check the programme herein to verify the title of you work and the time. To guarantee that everything is ok, you must test your presentation in the PC available on the Conference Room on the day before you are scheduled to talk also guaranteeing you give the Organising Committee your presentation after the testing. There will be a responsible for the Presentations in the Organising Committee that will assist you on this.

If you are a poster presenter, we must inform you that your poster should have 1,20m high and 0,90m wide. There will not be a formal poster presentation during the poster sessions that will be carried our during all the coffee breaks; you just need to stay next to your poster and available for answering questions and discussing scientific details with participants and/or invited speakers wishing to do so. These sessions are quite informal to allow interaction between participants and are accompanied with food and drinks. You must hang your poster as soon as you register in the placard corresponding to your poster code. The placards will be located in the coffee-break area next to the conference room (Room Selvagens III).
