We cordially invite you to attend the 5th International Conference IMPLEMENTATION OF MICROREACTOR TECHNOLOGY IN BIOTECHNOLOGY – IMTB 2019, which will take place in Cavtat, Croatia, from 19th to 22nd May 2019.

The IMTB conference aims to provide a platform for people from industry and academia, working in the cross-section of microfluidics, life sciences, analytics and bioprocess engineering. The interdisciplinary feature of the IMTB conferences enables participants to present and discuss their latest results, developments and strategies within these complementary fields and to integrate them to gain new accomplishments for industrial implementation.

This event is a sequel of the IMTB 2010 Conference held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in September 2010, the IMTB 2013 Conference, which took place in Cavtat, Croatia, in May 2013, the IMTB 2015 Conference, which was held in Opatija, Croatia, in May 2015, and the IMTB 2017 Conference held in Bled, Slovenia, in April 2017. Organizers of this conference series are collaborative research groups from the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology of the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, and the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology of the University of Zagreb, Croatia.

Invited prominent speakers from leading research institutions and industry together with participants of various backgrounds including chemical, mechanical and electrical engineering, medicine, pharmacy, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology and biotechnology, will present their recent achievements in the field of enzymatic microreactors, cells within microdevices, analytical microdevices and bioprocess intensification and integration within microdevices.

The conference will take place in the Croatian seacoast town Cavtat, located just 15 km south of Dubrovnik, whose rich history and cultural heritage will be discovered within the conference social programme.

We encourage you to present your work and to participate at this exciting event and we look forward to welcoming you at the IMTB 2019 Conference in Cavtat in May 2019!
