BIO Issues Call for Session Proposals for 2008 BIO International Convention

Washington, DC | Posted on June 11th, 2007

The BIO International Convention continues to be the number one resource for the latest information and the newest opportunities for executives, investors, scientists, policy leaders, and journalists from around the world. Speakers at the sessions will share breakthroughs in medicine, diagnostics, the environment, energy production, food and agriculture, and more with a global audience of an estimated 24,000 attendees.

The convention will feature more than 200 breakout sessions in 21 educational session tracks, including biodefense; bioethics; clinical research/clinical trials; devices and diagnostics; drug discovery and development; emerging company issues; finance; food and agriculture; industrial and environmental; intellectual property/legal; manufacturing; nanotechnology; technology transfer/licensing and other key business areas for doing biotech business globally.

The most popular educational tracks from the 2007 BIO International Convention included business development, clinical research, devices and predictive diagnostics and technology transfer. Super Sessions, Biotech Entrepreneurship Boot Camp and the Translational Research Forum all drew significant attendance.

Applications for educational sessions will only be accepted online, at http://www.bio2008.org/Attendees/program.html. The online application process closes on Friday, September 7th at 5:00 pm EDT.

All proposals will be reviewed by BIO staff, the standing BIO Program Committee and a local Program Committee composed of biotechnology professionals. Applicants will be notified of the status of their session proposal beginning early November 2007.

The 2007 BIO International Convention drew a record 22,366 attendees, a nearly 15 percent increase from the previous year, with representatives from 48 states and one-third of attendees from outside the United States.
