The 8th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts — June 11-13, 2018 — Seattle, WA
The 8th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts (AlgalBBB 2018) will continue this year with renewed focus from investigators in this area of research. In our new venue for the year, Seattle, we will continue to provide an exciting atmosphere to discuss the latest research and technologies and to interact with leaders in the field.
Emphasis will be placed on the latest unpublished technical and scientific results, along with discussion and direct interactions with strategic partners, funding sponsors, and leaders in the field. The conference presents the work of the algae research community through a balanced set of oral presentations and posters selected from the best submissions to the conference. In addition, our list of key note and invited speakers includes funding agency sponsors, key industry players, and top scientists from the international community.
The conference will cover emerging technologies in all areas of algal research, including microalgae, macroalgae, and cyanobacteria: biology, biotechnology, biomass production, cultivation, harvesting, extraction, biorefinery, feedstock conversion into fuels, bioproducts, and econometrics and sustainability analyses.
We look forward to specialized sessions in engineering topics, molecular characterization technologies (e.g., genomics, proteomics, metabolomics), strain engineering technologies for biofuels and high value products, biomaterials, photobioreactor design and control systems, and new technologies in characterization and analysis, among others.
