On behalf of the Biophysical Society of China, it is my great pleasure and privilege to invite you to participate in the 17th International Biophysics Congress (IBC)(IUPAB), which will be held in Beijing from Oct. 30th to Nov. 3rd, 2011.
During the last 20 years, Biophysics has played an ever more important role in the social and economic development of China, both as a scientific discipline and a service-providing profession. Many excellent scientific results have been achieved in the Biophysics research area during this period, and Chinese scientists in this field have published numerous papers in leading international journals, thus increasing their visibility. The main goal of the 17th IBC (IUPAB) is to maximize this opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss new advances with fellow scientists from all over the world. We also aim to encourage co-operation and interaction among the international Biophysical community, as well as build friendships.
Beijing is one of China’s most ancient cities and oldest capitals. The city has a unique history encompassing more than 3,000 years, as well as a rich cultural heritage with many world-renowned historical sites located in and around the city, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, the Summer Palace and the grand Tian’anmen Square. Moreover, Beijing has undergone many changes in recent years and is becoming a thoroughly modern and cosmopolitan city. Beijing is being made to look more beautiful and pollution is being reduced, while public transport is considerably improved, especially the subway system. The warm and welcoming people, modern hotel accommodation, delicious food and the tremendous success of the 2008 Olympic Games all help to make Beijing the perfect venue for our 2011 Congress.
Under the auspices of the IUPAB, and with our experience of organizing large international scientific conferences, we will make every effort to organize a memorable and successful 17th IBC (IUPAB). We believe that the conference will not only benefit participants from all over the world in terms of academic exchange and developing international cooperation, but will also provide an opportunity for participants to experience the unique blend of historic and modern culture in Beijing.
I look forward to welcoming you in China later this year. With your participation and support, I have no doubt that the 17th IBC (IUPAB) will be a great success.
