Scope of Symposium

This symposium will focus on the rapidly growing interface between the materials sciences and microfluidics/lab-on-chip technologies. Specific focus areas include (but are not limited to) the following: 

(1) Applications of advanced materials in lab-on-a-chip for chemical and biological sensing and analysis, coupling of novel materials-based sensing/analysis techniques with microfluidics.

(2) Strategies to create or modify microchannel materials for enhanced chemical and biological compatibility.

(3) Fluid-material and cell-material interactions in lab-on-a-chip; analysis and tuning of wettability and adhesion on microchannel surfaces. 

(4) Microfluidics-based strategies and methods for synthesis, encapsulation and processing of nanomaterials, polymers, microbeads, capsules, fibres, emulsions, cells, foams etc.

Proceedings

The manuscripts of all those papers that are presented at the conference and accepted after peer review will be published online in "Procedia Engineering" by Elsevier. Details for online submission of the manuscripts will be made available by concerned symposium chair while accepting the paper for presentation at the conference.
