The Technion – Israel Institute of Technology is pleased to invite you to the 3rd International Conference on Biological and Biomimetic Adhesives (ICBBA 2018) that will take place from November 20th until November 22th in Haifa, Israel.

in co-operation with  the COST action CA 15216

Building on the success of the two previous conferences in Lisbon and Istanbul, this conference attempts to bring together leading scientists, clinicians, engineers, and delegates from industry at the forefront of bioadhesion science and technology.

Welcome to Israel!

                                                            Abstract submission is closed but we still accept requests for poster presentations. 

                                                Biomimetics, an open access journal by MDPI, will sponsor a 100 Euro Best Poster Award


Note: Optional tours to Nazareth and Sea of Galilee (November 19) and Jerusalem and Dead Sea (November 23-24) with overnight in Jerusalem are offered. For details click here.


Conference participants are invited to submit manuscripts to a Special Issue on "Bioadhesion, Biological and Biomimetic Adhesives" that will be published  in Biomimetics, an open access journal by MDPI.   

Original research articles and reviews in areas related to the conference themes will be considered. Accepted manuscripts will be fully waived from article processing charges. Submission deadline July 2019. For further details click here.
