Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system. All abstracts will be refereed, and a criterion of rejection will be lack of originality. Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged by an administrator. A condition of submission is that, if accepted, one of the authors will present at the conference.

Authors must follow the instructions for abstract(s) submission using the conference website tools. The abstracts will be published in the conference program. Please note, the author submitting the abstract must be present to submit the paper at Bioceramics 28. 

If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission, or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please DO NOT RESUBMIT your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please email the conference with details of any revisions or queries.

If you have any inquiries about your abstract, please do not hesitate to write to the organizing committee at:

Conference registration opens May 1, 2016.  Fees may be paid online via credit card or through electronic wire transfer.  Please note that each registered participant can present only one paper during the conference. Failure to register as a participant will result in automatic withdrawal of the accepted paper.


You may also want to publish your accepted full papers (4-6 pages) in the periodical “Key Engineering Materials” (KEM) as BIOCERAMICS 28 Proceedings, which will be published by Trans Tech Publication. If so, please remember to register accordingly through for your full paper submission. The publisher, TTP, will send you the instructions, guidelines, and the key access for full paper submission.

KEM is available in print and online through It is indexed by Elsevier: (SCOPUS & Ei Compendex (CPX)), Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA), Chemical Abstracts (CA), Google and Google Scholar, ISI (ISTP, CPCI, Web of Science), Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), and etc. 

Please note, the deadline for full paper submission is June 20, 2016

Headshot background


 Oral Presentation Guidelines:

To help you plan,  we have allocated all talks (except plenary and keynote lectures) 12 minutes: 10 minutes for presentation and 2 minutes for questions and answers.

 Please bring your presentation with you on a USB drive so that you can use the laptop we will provide to show your presentation. 

 Save your talk as a Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) and make sure any audio or video that you wish to present is embedded so that the file can be presented by itself. 

Poster Presentation Guidelines: 

Your poster should be 110cm high x 90cm wide, OR A0 paper size.

The presentation number assigned to your poster should not be placed on your poster; the poster boards will be numbered for you.

Self-adhesive pads for posting or appropriate thumb tacks will be offered by the conference administrative committee. 

 Please begin displaying your poster on October 18, after the poster session starts. 

 The posters will not be removed until the final poster session. Posters left on the board after the closing ceremony may be removed by the conference staff. 

Full Paper Submission Guidelines: 

 Full paper submission must be done through Trans Tech Publications at the following link:

 Instructions, login credentials, and a full paper template (4-6 pages) will be sent by email to the contributing authors.
