MicroTAS 2015

October 25, 2015 - October 29, 2015

The Nineteenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2015) will be held at Hwabaek International Convention Center (HICO), Gyeongju, KOREA from October 25 – 29, 2015.

µTAS 2015 continues a series of Conferences that are the premier forum for reporting research results in microfluidics, microfabrication, nanotechnology, integration, materials and surfaces, analysis and synthesis, and detection technologies for life science and chemistry. The Conference offers plenary talks as well as contributed oral presentations and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

Following Seattle in 2011, Okinawa in 2012, Freiburg in 2013 and San Antonio in 2014, we anticipate over 1,000+ worldwide scientists and professionals engaged in research on and the use of integrated microsystems and nanotechnology for chemistry and life sciences.

The city of Gyeongju, which is located in the far southeastern corner of the Korean Peninsula, not only provides an excellent venue for our professional meeting, but also is an ideal location for attendees to bring their families. Over a thousand years of history, it has well preserved temples, historical relics, and cultural treasures. Many historical sites in Gyeongju are designated as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. A variety of interesting tours will be offered so attendees and their companions can experience Gyeongju and the surrounding region to the full. City Tours are the most convenient and comfortable way to explore Gyeongju.

On behalf of the organizing committee, I encourage you to make plans now to attend the Nineteenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences. I look forward to welcoming you to Gyeongju in October 2015 for the µTAS 2015 Conference.
