OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE
The 14th International Conference on Photonics and Imaging in Biology and Medicine (PIBM 2017) will be held in September 26-28, 2017, in Suzhou Industrial Park, Suzhou, P.R. China.
PIBM is the largest series international biomedical photonics conference in Asia. PIBM was suggested by Dr. Britton Chance and was initially held at HUST biyearly since 1999. PIBM is designed to bring together scientists, engineers and clinical researchers from a variety of disciplines engaged in applying optical science, photonics and imaging technologies to problems in biology and medicine. The scope of this conference ranges from basic research to instrumentation engineering, to biological and clinical studies. It is recognized one of the largest and most comprehensive international conferences in China, and representing the highest level of the worldwide research in this field. More and more young researchers presented and exchanged their innovative ideas on this friendly and professional platform, which made PIBM an unforgettable meeting.
To encourage students, PIBM 2017 will continue to set Best Student Paper Award for excellent papers contributed by the students. Every student who would like to participate in the contest should present at the conference both as a poster presentation and a 2-minute flash oral presentation. Top 5 will be selected to be awarded the certificate and prize.
