Dear Colleagues,
park.png  On behalf of the YABEC 2011 Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the Symposium of Young Asian Biochemical Engineers’ Community, which will be held in Incheon, Korea on October 7th – 9th, 2011. Since the first YABEC symposium was held in Seoul in 1995, this is the 17th symposium and this symposium series has developed into a key academic event among young Asian biochemical engineers.

With the 16 year history of YABEC, we have just finished our 4 cycles with the 4 member regions. At the last YABEC delegate meeting in Taiwan, it was decided that YABEC symposium would be organized under the auspices of Asian Federation of Biotechnology (AFOB), which was founded in 2008. This YABEC 2011 is the first YABEC symposium which is held under the auspices of AFOB. We are at the meaningful moment to start our 5th round together with AFOB.

As you know, the YABEC symposium has its unique characteristics, which cannot be found in other conventional conferences. The YABEC symposium provides us with the opportunity to share not only academic information but also YABECian Spirit including family-like friendship and Bio-Fun mind. We are therefore proud to welcome you to this exciting symposium, and hope that you will contribute actively to make the symposium a success, both in terms of science and YABECian Spirit.
