8th Symposium on Biodegradable Metals
May 14-17 2016, L’Estérel resort, Laurentide, Montréal , Canada
Following the successes of the past 7 editions, we are proud to introduce the abstract book of the 8th Symposium on Biodegradable Metals, which was held in L’Estérel resort, in Laurentide region, 75 km North of Montréal , from Saturday May 14 to Tuesday May 17, 2016. This year again, the onsite symposium emphasized its academic-conference-style with an openly discursive format, rather than a lecture and question–answer format. This style was completed by the traditional discussions and the unconventional daily free-time sessions early in the afternoon. Behind the presentations, this symposium aimed to discuss open questions on the session topics, new approaches, background knowledge, and personal views among the participants. Furthermore, discussions at the poster session were focused on specific topics and will encourage the participants to raise critical questions or help each other advancing the field of biodegradable metals.
