17–22 October 2004, Santiago, Chile
The 12th International Biotechnology Symposium will be held 17–22 October 2004 in Santiago, Chile. This well-known event is held every four years on a different continent. It is the main international meeting in the rapidly expanding field of biotechnology. This will be the first time this conference will be held in Latin America.
The scientific program of the 12th IBS will include many of the newer areas in the field. In keeping with previous symposia, the program is arranged in a number of sections, with all presented papers being by invitation. Each section is chaired by two or three internationally recognized leaders in the field. In addition, key international figures have been invited to give eight plenary lectures. Finally, a very large number of posters will be available, representing the latest scientific activities throughout the world.
The symposium will be held in the heart of Santiago at the Casapiedra Convention Center. This is a custom-designed location that allows for the concurrent sessions, trade show, and poster area to be in the same building.
