» File :
Dear AFOB members,

It is our great pleasure to announce the "3rd International symposium of innovative bio-production in Kobe" (3rd iBioK symposium) to be held in Kobe, Japan, from January 20th-21st, 2011. The 3rd iBioK symposium will highlight cutting-edge advances in the fields of bio-refinery and metabolic
engineering based microbe breeding.

Innovative Bioproduction KOBE (iBioK) project has been launched in 2008, supported by Creation of Innovation Centers for Advanced Interdisciplinary Research Areas. The final goal of our project is to establish the"Bioproduction", the production of fuels, chemicals,functional foods and medicines from Biomass.
You can easily feel our exciting research activities and established collaboration through iBioK symposium with the front-line researchers from all over the world.

We are very glad to accept your registration for our iBioK ymposium, and we also hope you will enjoy iBioK symposium.

The information of 3rd iBiok symposium is as follow.

Date:  January 20-21, 2011
Venue: Kobe University Centennial Hall

Conference fee: For free (Symposium) and 7000JPN (Banquet)
Organized by: Creation of Innovation Centers for Advanced
Interdisciplinary Research Areas.

Please send your contact address (name, affiliation and e-mail
