8th Regional Biophysics Conference

RBC 2018, #ReBiCon2018

Zreče, May 16th - 20th 2018

Welcome to the website of the 8th Regional Biophysics Conference. This conference has a long tradition of fostering regional cooperation, exposing young researches and reviewing recent advances in experimental, theoretical, and applied biophysics.

This year, the conference will be held in Zreče, Slovenia. It will open on Wednesday afternoon, 16th of May 2018, and close after lunch on Sunday, 20th of May 2018. It will consist of lectures, exhibitions, poster sessions, and exciting social events, promoting creative interaction of participants throughout the conference.

For the first time, the RBC will be closely connected with social networks - the lectures will be streamed live on Twitter and participants are encouraged to interact before and during the conference using the hashtag #ReBiCon2018!

With 200 expected participants and five days of stimulating interactions, it is expected to be the most important European event in the field between the two subsequent EBSA meetings.
