BIT’ 2nd Annual Protein and Peptide Conference (PepCon 2009)

A World's Leading Meeting Place for Protein/Peptide Sciences!

Theme: Life,knowledge & Bio-Economy
Time: April 2-4, 2009
Venue: COEX, Seoul, South Korea

PepCon-2009 is the 2nd annual protein and peptide conference of BIT Life Sciences. The conference will feature an outstanding experience both scientifically and socially. Also, the oriental culture makes Korea a fascinating and pleasant place to congregate with old colleagues and new friends to share the most important aspects of many exciting and rapid advances in peptide and protein researches. PepCon-2009 will cover the frontier protein sciences, proteomics, system biology, enable technologies such as protein chips, protein microarray, protein/peptides as therapeutics and diagnostics, peptide and protein drug discovery and development, peptide and protein expression or synthesis, protein design and engineering, and outsourcing R & D along with talent search. The conference will take the form of presentations, workshops, round table conferences, exhibitions and posters. It is our hope to provide an alternative exciting event in Asia Pacific Rim that updates the current trend and business model for the peptide and protein professionals. A crucial aspect of our never ending endeavors is to find solutions to difficult scientific problems, and our ultimate goal is to support translation of scientific discovery into application or therapeutics.

PepCon-2009 will bring:
 200+ Brilliant Scientific, Tech and Business Presentations Offering You Brainstorms
 100+ Scientific Posters Presenting Exciting Research Achievements
 50+ Exhibition Booths Showcasing New Products and New Technologies
 500+ Attendees Coming from Worldwide to Exchange Ideas, Build New Network and Foster Friendship
 A Charming Tech Tour to Mega-modern and Appealingly Ancient City Seoul , South Korea

PepCon 2009 Will be the first time off-shore conference of BIT Life Sciences. We will keep good tracking of the program in the previous year, and extend to new fields what experts and colleagues expected. We offer 240 Presentations, extensive business development opportunities, technology and product exhibition and poster sessions, You can propose your own topics in which you think those will reflect the best interests of protein and peptide communities.
