6th European Symposium on Biochemical Engineering Science

August 27 - 30, 2006 in Salzburg/Austria

Conference Programme

Malcolm Lilly Award

In commemoration of Professor Malcolm Lilly, one of the pioneers of biochemical engineering, the ESBES Board in 2000 decided to introduce an award to be presented to a promising young scientist or engineer working in the field of biochemical engineering during the ESBES Symposium: the Malcolm Lilly Award. This is the 4 th symposium at which the award will be made and on this occasion PhD students and postdocs are invited to submit a one-page abstract for consideration to by 11 August at the latest. The abstracts will be reviewed by a special committee and shortlisted candidates (up to 5) will be selected to present an oral lecture at ESBES 6.

This prestigious award comes with a 2,000 US Dollar prize. The organisers thank Merck & Co. Inc., Westpoint, PA/USA for their generous sponsorship. The award ceremony will take place at the closing session of the conference.

Scientific Programme

Poster Award

At all ESBES conferences, the poster presentation of latest results was and is one of the most important parts of the scientific programme. Thanks to the generous sponsorship by VOGELBUSCH GmbH, this role will be emphasised in Salzburg by the Best Poster Award which will be awarded to three student poster presentations.
