Location: Marriott and Embassy Suites Hotel, Winston Salem, North Carolina, USA

Dates: May 2-3, 2017

3D Bioprinting: Physical and Chemical Processes is an AIP Publishing Horizons conference sponsored by Applied Physics Reviews.

The conference will focus on the physical and chemical processes that underlie 3D bioprinting techniques for applications in the fabrication of artificial tissues and biomedical devices, such as fused deposition modeling, stereolithography apparatus, laser direct writing, and inkjet printing. Current limitations, proposed solutions, and open challenges related to the development of novel 3D bioprinting approaches will be emphasized.

The invited speakers are a select group of accomplished and promising researchers working across a broad span of approaches in 3D bioprinting. In addition to the invited speakers, the conference aims to attract the best and brightest early-career researchers in the field to take part in the discussion and present their work in the poster sessions.

The conference will be of interest to researchers, students, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians involved with 3D printing technologies, and it will be sized to promote informal conversations and exchange of ideas between participants, including during session breaks and the conference dinner.
