15th SBE Congress
Annual Meeting of the Spanish Biophysical Society. June 10 – 12, 2015, Granada (Spain).
On behalf of the Organising Committee, it is a great honour to invite you to the 15th Congress of the Spanish Biophysical Society in Granada, a world heritage city by UNESCO.
The congress will be held at the “Facultad de Ciencias”, an excellent facility in the centre of the city, as a part of the University of Granada, which will allow for an easy access to all scientific sessions.
The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, continues a long teaching tradition, the roots of which can be traced back to the madrasahs of the last Nasrid Kingdom. The University is a vibrant presence in the city of Granada, benefiting from the distinctive beauty of its environment and a privileged geographical location due to its proximity to the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean coast.
The commitment to high-quality research has placed the UGR in a prominent position in terms of national rankings. The Postgraduate School offers 68 master’s and 116 doctorate programmes. For many years, the UGR has promoted a significant international activity. It is the leading European university in terms of receiving students and the second Spanish university in terms of the mobility of its own students.
The congress will be structured in parallel symposiums/symposia with several plenary lectures, conducted by outstanding scientists in their areas. All participants will be able to attend the scientific program, which has been carefully designed to promote debating and enriching discussions, with especial “care” given to the poster sessions. The wide variety of areas within Biophysics to be discussed during the conference will provide the participants with an unique vision of the state-of-the-art at an international level in this attractive and highly developing field.
Any important news regarding to the organization as well as registration, accommodation, etc will be conveniently posted and periodically updated on the website of the Conference, as well as useful tourist/social information about the City of Granada, which may be of the participants´ interest.
We specially encourage young scientists to participate in the 15th Spanish Biophysical Congress, where they should expect not only an enriching scientific training during the Congress Sessions but also a wonderful personal experience in the city.
