OverviewWe, on behalf of Indian Biophysical Society and IISER, Mohali, are delighted to let you know that the Annual Symposium of the Indian Biophysical Society has been scheduled for March 22-25, 2017 in Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Mohali, India.
The main symposium will consist of invited lectures (30-35) put together by the scientific program committee, the GN Ramachandran memorial lecture, displayed posters (~250-300) and some short lectures (~5-6) selected from amongst the poster abstracts for oral presentations. We will be able to have a maximum attendance at the meeting of about ~450 participants from academic research and industry.
Throughout the meeting, there will also be exhibits put up by participants from industry (i.e., leading companies manufacturing equipment, or reagents, for research in biophysics and biochemistry), showcasing latest technologies and products.
Meanwhile, all systems are in place for those who are interested in attending the upcoming 2017 meeting to register online through this website, and also to look up the information presented here, about the venue, the city and other aspects that you might have some queries about. Contact numbers for inquiries are provided.
Please note that you can register for the meeting(s) regardless of whether you are submitting an abstract. Also, you can register regardless of whether you are a member of the Indian Biophysical Society. There is also an option for symposium-organized accommodation, if you do not wish to organize your own. This meeting is open to all who are interested in biophysics; in either learning about ongoing research (main symposium) or about the latest technical and instrumentation-related aspects of biophysics (one-day lecture series)!
Of course, we would welcome your becoming a life member of the IBS (membership fee Rs. 1000/-), before, during or after the meeting, should you wish to become a member.
Further, please note that you can register separately for the one-day corporate lecture series on 22nd March, and for the main symposium ( 23rd– 25th March, 2017), depending on your preferences. Please check the relevant ‘clickable’ buttons on the registration page. We hope that most of you will register for both the events! Our reason for having separate registrations is that we hope that many students from the neighborhood(s) of Chandigarh and Delhi will register for the one-day corporate lecture series on 22nd March even if they don’t register for the main symposium, as it promises to be a very educative experience. Students attending the main symposium are highly encouraged to also register for the one-day lecture series.

We look forward to seeing you at Chandigarh.
