14-18 14th International Biotechnology Symposium and Exhibition — Palacongressi, Rimini, Italy. “Biotechnology for the Sustainability of Human Society”; “knowledge-based” is a good thing. We’re more interested in this approach than in all of the usual networking and partnering conventions put together (though we’re sure there will be plenty of those things at IBS 2010).
26-1 Oct OzBio2010: The Molecules of Life – from Discovery to Biotechnology — Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia. A joint meeting combining the 12th International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (IUBMB) Conference, the 21st Federation of Asian and Oceanian Biochemists and Molecular Biologists (FAOBMB) Conference, and the ComBio2010 meeting.
20-22 World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science — San Francisco, USA. This mega-symposium includes 15 more or less simultaneous conferences, the most interesting of which (to us) are the International Conference on Computational Biology and the International Conference on Chemical Engineering. Among the areas of interest will be biochemical, bio-molecular, biomedical and many other great topics that begin with “bio”. We’re really looking forward to the discussion on the Ethics of Bioinformatics, but that’s just us.
If you plan to rent a car during the convention, please take care driving. With its steep hills and narrow streets San Francisco can be challenging to some drivers. If by some bad chance of luck you happen to be involved in an accident, immediately call our convention attendees’welcome desk for assistance. We have a list of San Francisco professional lawyers and in a number of car accident lawyers who will provide valuable advice about whether to sue or to just follow through with the insurance claim. If your car accident injuries are minor do not hire a car injury attorney. However, if any one were seriously injured or you and the other driver are in dispute over who was at fault, or even if other involved driver was uninsured or under insured, we suggest you at least speak with a car accident lawyer for advice as to how to proceed. Hopefully this advice will not be needed by any of our attendees.
On a lighter note: We heard a rumor that all attendees will receive complimentary chips they can use at Online-Casino-Party.co – right from their rooms in the Fairmont San Francisco, a world renowned luxury hotel in historic San Francisco. Apparently some hospitality expert came up with the idea for this unique promotion and all you have to do is search for online slots USA and hit the #1 site which is approved for US players. I plan to make use of this to help me unwind after the conference – the pressure of making a presentation to that large crowd has me a bit stressed and slots are the perfect distraction.
