Welcome to CSBE/SCGAB 2019

Dear colleagues and guests,

On behalf of the Canadian Society for Bioengineering and the local organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Vancouver for the CSBE 2019 AGM. The theme for this year is “biosystems for clean technology and low carbon economy”. The global economy is moving toward a greener future and Canada is working to keep pace. The commercialization of low-carbon solutions, including clean energy technologies, can catalyze an important emerging market and support the transformation of the global energy sector.

The members of the local organizing committee are very proud to be hosting the next the CSBE AGM and look forward to welcoming you to our city. Vancouver is an amazing place to visit. Our multicultural city has many diverse neighborhoods of interest to visitors. Easy access, first-class hotels, and exceptional cuisine are just a few of many attributes that will make the Vancouver experience unforgettable for you.

Please mark in your calendars the dates of the CSBE Conference 2019, July 14 – 17, so that you may join your colleagues in what we hope will be a fantastic meeting.
