21st IUPAB Congress 2024

24 - 28 June 2024 | Kyoto International Conference Centre, Japan
21st IUPAB Congress 2024

The International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB2024) congress will be held in Kyoto, Japan between 24 and 28 of June, 2024 in Kyoto International Conference Centre, as the joint congress of 21st IUPAB (International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics) and 62nd BSJ (Biophysics Society of Japan).

The concept of this congress is ‘Rocking Out Biophysics’. This phrase means that there will be a shake up of biophysics at this conference and new biophysics can be created together. One of the important roles of academic activity is to update existing concepts and biophysics is a discipline that brings powerful perspectives and techniques to update existing concepts in life science boldly. The aim is to make this conference a place where researchers from various fields, including biophysics, from all over the world can gather and bring new perspectives and technologies to shake up the current biophysics itself.

To this end, outstanding researchers from biophysics and related fields are invited who have made remarkable achievements that bring innovative perspectives and technologies to the plenary and keynote talks. In addition, more than 30 sessions will feature invited talks by leading scientists in their fields. Each session will also include cutting-edge oral presentations by young researchers selected from an open call. In addition, poster presentations are invited to showcase unique researches from around the world.

Another highlight of this congress is Hands-on training program for young researchers to experience front-line biophysics research in Japan. In this program, each host university or research institute will accept about 10 young researchers before the main meeting to experience state-of-the-art high-speed AFM technology, ultra-high-resolution and large-field imaging technology, large-scale simulation technology, and so on. Each project is also linked to the scientific session of the congress, providing an opportunity for participating young researchers to learn widely from the basics to the applications. Partial support for travel expenses is planned for participants in this program. Details will be announced on the website soon.

In order to foster an atmosphere of free and open discussion and exchange among participants from different generations, countries, and positions, a variety of events are planned, including a mixer with Japanese sake. The details will be announced on the website as soon as they are decided. Please look forward to it.
