The 7th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts

18 - 21 June, 2017 | Hyatt Regency, Miami, FL, USA

The 7th International Conference on Algal Biomass, Biofuels and Bioproducts provides an exciting venue to learn about the latest research and technologies in algal research and to interact with leaders the field.  Emphasis will be placed on the latest unpublished technical and scientific results, along with discussion and direct interactions with strategic partners, funding sponsors, and leaders in the field. The conference balances the interest of the algae research community through a balanced set of oral presentations and posters selected from the best submissions to the conference. In addition, our list of key note and invited speakers includes funding agency sponsors, key industry players, and top scientists from the international community.

The conference will cover all areas of emerging technologies in all areas of algal research, including microalgae, macroalgae, and cyanobacteria: biology, biomass production, cultivation, harvesting, extraction, biorefinery, feedstock conversion into fuels, bioproducts, and econometrics and sustainability analyses.

This year we look forward to specialized sessions in engineering topics, molecular characterization technologies (e.g., genomics, proteomics, metabolomics), strain engineering technologies for biofuels and high value products, photobioreactor design and control systems, and new technologies in characterization and analysis, among others.
