20th International Symposium

Welcome to ISBC 2018!

On behalf of the International Society for Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence, its president Vadim Viviani and the ISBC Council, it is a great honor for me to organize the ISBC 2018 meeting in Nantes, FRANCE.

2018 will be the 20th anniversary of the symposium ISBC (International Symposium for Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence).

This peculiar event will remain the best place to be for researchers from the chemiluminescence and bioluminescence communities but the organizers would like to open to other communities using the bio-chemiluminescence as end-user.

This ISBC 2018 symposium would be the open to : - The current community of researchers on chemiluminescence - The current community of researchers on bioluminescence - The community applying both reporting signals to biosensor, bioassays (enzymes, cells,...) in different field with true in the field applications. - The community of physician/engineers developing optical instruments.

28-31 May 2018

In accordance with previous ISBC symposium, topics are the same and we introduced a end users topic to promote this part and to allow more researcher,engineers to attend.
