The International Society for Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence serves to promote the fundamental and applied sciences of bio- and chemi-luminescence throughout the world.

The ISBC aims at facilitating and promoting interactions between academic, governmental, and industrial scientists in the field of chemiluminescence and bioluminescence to help transfer technologies and, thus, advance the field.

The ISBC has three principle aims:

  1. To organize and co-ordinate conferences and workshops through out the world.
  2. To contribute to the world debate on the stability of ecosystems, particularly those where bioluminescence plays a major role, and where chemiluminescence technology has analytical potential.
  3. To promote public understanding of science and engage the community by organizing and supporting educational and natural history-based initiatives and activities targeted at K-12 schools and the lay public.
