IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

IBSC 2020 CANCELLED AND POSTPONED FOR 2021

After carefully monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic-related developments, we have determined that we will not be able to reschedule the IBSC 2020 conference given the number of uncertainties we will face in the coming months. This has been a difficult decision, but we believe it to be in the best interest of the health and safety of our colleagues and all conference attendees.

The official conference web site remains to be the central communication and information point for future announcements.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay tuned for further info about IBSC 2021.

8th Joint International PSU-UNS Bioscience Conference Organizing Committee

Towards the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) Challenges
