Abstract Submission

All topics in the field of Biological Inorganic (Bioinorganic) Chemistry are welcome at the conference including the broader emerging areas where it is interfacing with Nanoscience, Synthetic Biology and Supramolecular Chemistry.  To assist in grouping similar abstracts we request presenters select the most suitable of the 7 topics.  These topics should be interpreted broadly. 

Abstract Information 

All acceptance emails were sent on 21 June, please also check your spam/junk folders for the email. 

If you haven't received an email please contact the Events Team (eurobic@contacts.bham.ac.uk)  with your abstract number and title. 

All correspondence regarding the abstracts is sent to the submitting author.  Please note that authors of abstracts are not automatically registered for the conference.

The conference programme will be released shortly.
