    ABRN Science Symposium: Next Generation Liquid Biofuels and Co-Products

     ABRN 2016 banner

    The Advanced Biofuels Research Network is combining with the Bioenergy Association to host the 7th Science Symposium on Next Generation Liquid Biofuels and Co-Products to be held on 10th of November at the Novotel Hotel, Rotorua. Abstract submission for the ABRN Science Symposium is now open.

    The Advanced Biofuels Research Network aims to promote better coordination and collaboration across biofuels research in New Zealand.

    Our Science Symposium is being held this year in conjunction with the IEA Bioenergy meetings, bringing a number of international bioenergy experts to Rotorua. A number of these researchers will speak at our symposium on their latest research activities and provide updates of the situation of liquid biofuel markets in their respective countries.

    Programme
    The Science Symposium will give you an opportunity to:

    • Receive an update on world-wide developments from international experts.
    • Understand the biofuel research landscape in New Zealand.
    • Further develop collaborations with other New Zealand research groups.
    • Interact with researchers, government, and industry interested in biofuels.

    Poster Session
    To increase the visibility of the posters, all presenters will be expected to give a short oral presentation on their work immediately prior to the informal poster session. The scientific organising committee will award a prize to the top student poster presentation.

    Call for Abstracts
    Abstract submissions are invited for scientific presentations and posters. Please email a 250 word abstract to biofuels.symposium@scionresearch.com by 19 September. Indicate your preference for a poster or an oral presentation and include your contact details. Due to the number of international speakers we will have this year, we encourage poster presentations. Microsoft Word documents and email text will be accepted. Abstracts will be evaluated by a scientific steering committee.
