History of Biological Surfaces and Interfaces Meetings

The Biological Surfaces and Interfaces series of meetings have a distinguished history of uniting researchers from diverse disciplines (physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, clinical disciplines) studying interfaces between biological systems and artificial materials, and within biological systems (such as cell membranes and their model, cell-extracellular matrix and cell-cell contacts, etc).  Since 2003, it served as the forum for the European and international interdisciplinary researchers in the field to exchange their ideas and mentor generations of young scientists.
