In cooperation with the

Institute of Biophysics of the CAS, Brno 

Hereby, we announce the conference on

 Bioelectrochemistry and Bioelectronics of Macromolecules


held in Brno (Czech Republic) from June 12 to 15, 2018

on the occasion of the 70th birthday of Professor J. Wang

The conference is preceded by a Workshop on Electrochemistry of Organic Compounds and Biomacromolecules (11. 6.–12. 6. 2018; Institute of Biophysics of the CAS (Královopolská 135, Brno). More info about the workshop is HERE.


The meeting will deal with the following topics:

  • electrochemistry and chemical modification of biopolymers (nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates)
  • aptamers and aptasensors
  • bioelectrochemical devices and arrays
  • electrocatalysis in nucleic acids and protein sensing
  • electrochemistry at membranes
  • micro- and nanomachines
  • electrode materials and modifications
  • nanomaterials in electrochemical biosensing
  • analytical applications 

Important dates

Deadline for abstract submission – short talks: March 22

Notification of short talk acceptance: April 9

Deadline for abstract submission – posters: April 30

Deadline for booking rooms at discounted prices: May 25

Note: number of participants is limited to about 70. All participants will be invited to present posters; limited number of short (15 min) oral presentations will be selected by the Scientific Committee.

Please note that this meeting will take place the week after the ESEAC 2018 conference (June 03 - 07 2018 at Rhodos, Greece) which may be convenient for your travel schedule in case of your interest in participating in both events.

Due to HORIZON 2020 funding via BISON project, no registration fee will be charged and reduced accommodation prices will be offered to participants of the JW70 meeting in case of “early bird” booking (until May 25).
