Word of welcome
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry invites you to Montreal, Canada, for the International Biotechnology Symposium and Exhibition on August 12-17, 2018. This 18th edition of the symposium is co-organized by the National Research Council of Canada, McGill University, the University of Waterloo, and BIOTECanada.
We are pleased to bring together diverse research and applications of biotechnology under one roof. The symposium will provide a unique, international forum for the exchange of ideas and cross-pollination among peers, combined with a social program to facilitate networking and discover Canada’s cultural capital.
The theme of the 2018 conference is Supporting a Healthy World. Indeed, there has never been a more exciting time to showcase how biotechnology is revolutionizing the development of innovative medicines and diagnostics, sustainable agriculture, new sources of energy, and environmental remediation. And with the advent and integration of big data and artificial intelligence in the field of biotechnology, we are truly entering a new era that promises to transform our world.
I look forward to seeing you in Montreal!
