BIT's 1st Annual Protein and Peptide Conference (PepCon-2008), a dedicated event on protein and peptide sciences, which will be held on April 22-24, 2008 in Shenzhen, China, with a theme of ¡§From Concept to Market¡¨. This conference is designed to initiate an educational and network platform in Asia Pacific Rim for international academic & industrial institutions and professionals in this area.

Being in the midst of the conference planning, we are proud that there has already been an impressive array of distinguished experts and influential industrial decision-makers who have decided to join us. Until now, there have been more than two hundred attendees, among them Dr. Harold A. Scheraga, one of the world's most eminent and widely-published chemists, Dr. Gregg B. Fields, President Elect of American Peptide Society (APS), Dr. Marc Wilkins from Australia who defined the concept of the Proteome and coined the term and Dr. David K. Robinson, Vice President, Bioprocess R&D, Merck Research Laboratories, Merck & Co., Inc. USA.

This conference will be geared toward a diverse base of participants from academia to bio-pharmaceutical, chemical, instrumentation and other industries. It is meant to provide a unique congress for interdisciplinary interaction and networking. 24 carefully- chosen sessions will foster the exchange of ideas, provide "real world" examples that can be applied in daily practice and present an overview of the technological developments and general trends. Your benefit include:

Ć Talk with worldwide experts and influential decision-markers from industry and government
Ć Benefit from the well-organized symposium and learn the latest scientific accomplishments from more than 30 sessions and 200 splendid lectures
Ć Face-to-face and equal exchange with your potential business partners and gain mutual benefit.
Ć Conduct academic exchange with Chinese scientists and cooperate with Chinese enterprises and research institutes, as well as approach to Chinese governmental sectors
Ć Get together and explore cooperative opportunities with worldwide giants in relevant areas
Ć Target your potential customers and expand
Ć Highlight your corporation profile and increase public awareness of your products, expertise as well as service.
Ć Find out most promising and profitable investment projects
