27th Symposium and Annual Meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine
OCTOBER 27 TO 29, 2015
BALI ISLAND, INDONESIA
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, It is my great honor to invite you to the Bioceramics 27, the Annual Meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine to be held in Bali Island, Indonesia on October 27 to 29, 2015. Bioceramics 27 will gather scientists, engineers, manufacturer, dentists and surgeons from all over the world, and this is the first time to be held in Indonesia, also the first time in South East Asia region. The aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers and clinicians in order to establish open forum for presentation and discussion of the latest advancements in the field of bioceramics research and their medical applications. In this context, bioceramics has been widely used and plays important roles for several decades in orthopedic, spinal, maxillofacial surgery, drug delivery technology, and vaccine adjuvant as well as cell delivery in regenerative therapies. The clinical success depends on the intensive research to optimize the synthetic bioceramics- based system and understand the biological behavior. To achieve the goals, the conference will cover discussion on the advancement of new processing routes for bioceramics and biocomposites, surface engineering and bioceramic coatings, biomineralisation and biomimetics, bioceramics for drug delivery, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, cell and tissue interactions and clinical applications of bioceramics in dentistry and orthopedics.
Bioceramics 27 will be held in a splendid beautiful Bali Island, Indonesia. Bali is considered the most famous resort island in the world, which blends spectacular mountain scenery and beautiful beaches with warm and friendly people, and out of this: a vibrant culture. This is also a place where a memorable romantic comedy film “Eat, Pray and Love” (2010) was produced. Moreover, the island is easy to access from any parts of the world. Yet, the wonderful Bali Island offers the visitors endless opportunity to explore and enjoy. Furthermore, the year 2015 is very significant for ASEAN countries to evolve regional architecture to contribute more to the scientific development and economic growth. In this very important point Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), the oldest, biggest and most comprehensive university in Indonesia and as a co-founder of AUN (ASEAN University Network), is very proud to host Bioceramics 27 as a platform for research colleagues, especially young ones, can share the latest results of research, discuss problems, and envisage a new horizon of bioceramics.It is an honor to do our best to ensure that our expectations for Bioceramics 27 are exceeded. It is very honor to welcome you all to the beautiful Bali Island. We look forward to meeting you in Bali, Indonesia!
