Abstract submission

The deadline for abstract submission is extended until 23 June 2019.

We cordially invite you to submit your abstracts for oral presentation or poster/only poster to the 15th International Symposium on Biomineralization. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions for the scientific programme and would like to thank you in advance for your support!

Selected/major contributions will be published as full papers in a special issue of Acta Biomaterialia with the title: From Cells to Biomaterials.

We kindly ask authors to flag their submitted contribution with five topical keywords and a phylogenetic classifier. We are seeking diverse contributions from all phylogenetic groupings. The international organising committee will compose the sessions of the conference according to the supplied key words and contents of the contribution.

Please select the topical keywords from the list below. Some keywords are more general while others are more specific, and authors should feel free to suggest their own. 

Phylogenetic Grouping:

* invertebrates
* vertebrates
* plantae
* fungi
* bacteria and archaea
* protists
* viruses
* general biologic
* biomimetic
* other
