The Biometal Week

Following the successes of the past 14 editions, we are proud to introduce and welcome you to the 15th Symposium on Biodegradable Metals in Cetraro, Italy, from Monday 21 to Sunday 27 August 2023.

For this “In Person” event the symposium will emphasize its academic-conference-style with an openly discursive format, rather than a lecture and question–answer format. This style will be completed by the traditional discussions and the unconventional daily free-time sessions early in the afternoon. Behind the presentations, this symposium aims to discuss open questions on the session topics, new approaches, background knowledge, and personal views among the participants. Furthermore, discussions at the poster session will focus on specific topics and will encourage the participants to raise critical questions or help each other advancing the field of biodegradable metals.

The Symposium will be presented as a HYBRID event. This will make possible online participation. This participation will provide the following:

  1. A complete access to the presentation in real time, as they are happening on site. It will also be possible to participate in the question period to the presenters, using the chat function of ZOOM;
  2. Extra ZOOM sessions will take place with the speakers at a time period outside of the presentation schedule;
  3. For online presenters, the traditional onsite posters will be replaced with pre-recorded video presentations accessible during the 5 days of the Symposium. Poster presenters will also be accessible for discussion with online and onsite attendees using ZOOM.

For those onsite, the historical and pleasant environment of the Gran Hotel San Michele at Cetraro, in Italy will complete the experience we intend to offer to the attendees. The location was especially selected for bringing the attendees in a new region to explore, know and be inspired from the culture, the weather, the lifestyle, the surroundings, and the great millenary culture and history. The conference will be held in the ancient Magna Grecia lands, where the ancient Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoreestablished his largely known School for numbers and beyond.

Please join us in deepening our knowledge in the field and discovering this part of the world!

If potentially interested, we strongly suggest that you do not wait to the last minute to register, the number of rooms is limited, and registration will be treated on the principle first arrived – first served.

We really hope to welcome you at the next 15th Biometal 2023 next August!
