Scientific Scope

The aim of the conference is to provide a forum on all the various aspects of bioelectrochemistry to disseminate the knowledge of bioelectrochemistry and promote exchanges on recent findings and collaborations. The symposium features all aspects of the highly interdisciplinary areas of bioelectrochemistry and bioenergetics on the following themes:

- Affinity sensors, 3D bioarchitectures for biosensing
- Electrochemistry of proteins, enzyme electrodes
- Electroporation and membrane bioelectrochemistry
- Bioelectrochemistry in the service of medicine
- Microbial fuel cells, biofilms, bioconversion of energy
- Photobioelectrochemistry
- Enzymatic fuel cells
