WELCOME MESSAGE

Welcome to the 6th International Conference on BioSensors, BioElectronics, BioMedical Devices, BioMEMS/NEMS & Applications 2017 (Bio4Apps2017). Bio4Apps is a conference series, which was held first in National University of Singapore (2012), then Tokyo Medical and Dental University (2013), Shanghai Jiao Tong University (2014), Kyushu University (2015) and Griffith University (2016). The objective of the 6th Bio4Apps is to bring together researchers to meet and present their work and to disseminate new knowledge to the Bio and Nano engineering community. The conference covers both fundamental and applied topics in broad areas of Bio and Nanotechnology, including BioSensors, BioElectronics, BioMedical Devices, and BioMEMS/NEMS & Applications. We trust that this conference will provide an ample opportunity to network and exchange ideas between participants and peers from Singapore, China, Australia, Japan and so on. Bio4Apps2017 will be held on Tokyo from December11 - 13, 2017.
