Lab on a Chip International Symposium: Droplet-based Microfluidics

12 - 13 November 2016, Hangzhou, China

Droplet-based microfluidics has emerged as one of the most active research fields in microfluidics. As the world’s leading chemistry community, the Royal Society of Chemistry is pleased to collaborate with Zhejiang University to co-organise this Lab on a Chip International Symposium: Droplet-based Microfluidics in China.

This high-quality international symposium will bring together leading experts in all fields of droplet-based microfluidics from all around the world. We fully believe that all the presentations in this symposium will stimulate the exchange of ideas and experiences amongst all the participants. There will be four sequential sessions during the course of the two days with plenty of opportunities for discussion and interaction. The topics of the whole symposium include:
  • Fundamental theory and modelling of multiphase microfluidics
  • Novel microfluidic droplet manipulation technology
  • Novel methodology for droplet-based microfluidic analysis and screening
  • Droplet-based microfluidic single cell and single molecule analysis
  • Combination of droplet-based microfluidics with various detection techniques: mass spectrometry, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, capillary electrophoresis, chromatography, etc.
  • Application of droplet-based microfluidic systems in chemistry, biology, medicine, and drug development
The symposium is supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry and Zhejiang University, and chaired by Prof Qun Fang from Zhejiang University and co-chaired by Prof Aaron Wheeler from the University of Toronto. The journal Lab on a Chip, a flagship scientific journal in this field published by the Royal Society of Chemistry (2014 IF=6.115) will also be present and promoted in this symposium.

Online registration in advance is required to attend this symposium. In addition, poster presentations from students and early-career researchers are highly encouraged, and the best poster presenters will be awarded poster prizes. Please use the 'Book Now' box at the top right of this page to register and/or to submit your poster abstract.
