I am pleased to announce that this year we will be organising our MacDiarmid Institute BioNanoNetwork (BNN) meeting as part of 12th International Conference on the Frontiers of Polymers and Advanced Materials and Exhibition (ICFPAM 2013), to be held in Auckland from 8-13 December 2013. The BNN session will be running on Thursday 12 December at the Owen G Glenn Building, The University of Auckland. There are a number of distinguished international plenary, keynote and invited speakers presenting at the ICFPAM 2013 conference. Conference program can be viewed at http://www.icfpam2013.com

This year BNN participants who are not registered at the ICFPAM conference have to pay for one day registration fees (Thursday 12 Dec.) This allows BNN participants to attend all Thursday sessions including the BNN meeting session.  Thursday night is also the conference Dinner for those interested to attend. Please follow the registration procedure at: http://www.icfpam2013.com/registration

There will be limited slots for oral presentation at the BNN meeting this year so for those interested to give an oral presentation at the BNN session, please send me your abstract following the abstract_template_ICFPAM format. Deadline for abstract submission is Monday 21 October 2013.

The MacDiarmid Institute BNN is one of the sponsors for the ICFPAM conference.

For BNN members who wish to register at ICFPAM in order to retain the early bird rate (which officially ended at the start of the month), please follow the link below:


This applies for the one day registration  to attend the BNN meeting on Thursday 12 Dec 2013. It will allow you to attend all Thursday  conference sessions and BNN meeting.
