eBIC LogoeBIC - The SBIC Electronic Biological Inorganic Chemistry Meeting

As ICBIC20 has been postponed to 2023, SBIC will host an electronic Biological Inorganic Chemistry meeting (eBIC) to ensure that our community can remain connected and active through this period. We will have a continuous presentation of seminars, posters and the general assembly over a 48-hour period in order to serve our international community equitably and fully.

eBIC will be free of a registration fee to all SBIC members and you must be an SBIC member in order to participate. If you would like to participate in eBIC, follow this link (SBIC members-only). If you are not a member and want to join, register here. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
