2015 World Congress Call for Posters has closed. 

The Business Partnering Reception with Poster Presentations is the perfect time to see new and innovative ideas in the field of industrial biotechnology. The Reception will take place July 21, 2015 from 4:00 - 5:30 pm. 

Poster Setup
The posters are 4 ft high x 8 ft wide (120 cm x 240 cm). Your display may be smaller than this, but it cannot exceed this size limit as you will interfere with your fellow presenters’ presentations. Oversized posters will not be accommodated. Please note that Poster Presenters are responsible for their own shipping and storage. BIO will provide push pins to mount the posters.
