15-17 Bio Network East — Eden Roc Resort and Spa, Miami Beach, Florida. Focus on biopharma partnerships. Main topics: Day 1 “Responding To The Changing Environment And External Forces Affecting The Pharmaceutical Industry”, Day 2 “Capitalizing On Lessons Learned And Utilizing Trends In The Market To Facilitate Meaningful Partnerships”
14-15 Nanotechnology Conclave — Hotel Taj Palace, New Delhi, India. Partnering and discussion of nanotechnology in India
16-18 2010 IEEE International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Technology (ICBBT) — Chengdu, China.
20-22 IX International Symposium on Plant Biotechnology — Santa Clara, Villa Clara, Cuba.
27-30 World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing — Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland (Washington D.C.), USA.
12-13 International Conference on Mass Data Analysis of Images and Signals in Medicine, Biotechnology, Chemistry and Food Industry (MDA) — Berlin, Germany. What more do you need to know that the title doesn’t already tell you? The theme is “Beyond the Bar-Code Reader” (well, not really, but it may as well be).
12-15 2010 International Conference on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BIOCOMP ’10) — Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Big names? How about Lofti Zadeh (Mr. Fuzzy Logic himself). Also recommended for biotech folks: GEM ’10 (International Conference on Genetic and Evolutionary Methods) which is held at the same place, at the same time…all part of WORLDCOMP ’10, 22 computer science conferences held simultaneously, so you’re bound to miss something fascinating!
12-14 similarly, MULTICONF-10 includes BCBGC-10 (International Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Genomics and Chemoinformatics) — Imperial Swan Hotel & Suites, Orlando Florida USA. A tough decision; Florida or Vegas? Both multi-conventions have plenty of good topics scheduled, and both locations are at their most horrible in mid-July. Bugs and storms versus arid neon?
25-27 BIT 3rd World Congress of Industrial Biotechnology — Qingdao, Shandong, China. Not a “Third World” but the third time this show has been held. A wide range of Pacific Rim biotech topics.
1-4 ICBN (International Conference on Biotechnology and Nanotechnology) 2010 — Biopolis (Buona Vista), Singapore. Latest research developments (and a chance to see the wonderful Biopolis art & architecture!).
Robert Thelmont, when not investigating the inner workings of the world around us, enjoys studying various market trends. He has been very successful lately in predicting the swinging real estate prices and is always on the lookout for forest hills homes for sale to flip for profit. Robert is equally passionate about oil painting and feels a study of the arts is a great supplement for the budding biotech scientist.
** Update **
The conference was an overwhelming success. Everybody involved did a fantastic job & the even went off without a hitch. There was a wonderful turnout & many new themes were included in the conference this year. We have noticed a growing number of people interested in gathering with us to discuss the matter at hand & it is a welcome addition.
