The Society For Biomaterials is excited to host the 2023 Annual Meeting at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. In keeping with the history of our host city, the theme for 2023 is "Riding the Translational Waves to the Future". This year's program is focused on breakthroughs in biomaterials science, translation of research to clinical application, next-generation medical devices, standards development, regulatory issues, and commercial realities. Join us in 2023 to explore the future waters of biomaterials and avoid the translational wipe-out!

The 12th World Biomaterials Congress is an opportunity to create synergy among professionals from academia, industries, research institutes, and workers worldwide in the field of biomaterials research.

A symposium provides an opportunity to share specific research issues, problems, or topics from a variety of perspectives. Here, scientific research outcomes, educational contents, case studies, alternative solutions, interpretations, or contrasting points of view on a specific subject or about a common theme may be presented.

The results of the review process of symposia proposals will be announced on March 1, 2023. (Please be advised that the scientific committee reserves the right to merge or alter the symposia proposals.)


The Call for Abstracts is Now Open for MS&T23! Abstracts Due April 3rd!

The Society For Biomaterials is happily co-sponsoring the 2023 Materials Science & Technology Technical Meeting and Exhibition for the second time.

The Materials Science & Technology (MS&T) technical meeting and exhibition series is a long-standing, recognized forum for fostering technical innovation at the intersection of materials science, engineering, and application. At MS&T, you can learn from those who are on the cutting edge of their disciplines, share your work with the leading minds in your field, and build the valuable cross-disciplinary collaborations unique to this conference series. Join us for MS&T23 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.
