The Asia-Pacific Conference on Algal Biotechnology (APCAB) is organized once every three years in a different country in the Asia-Pacific Region under the auspices of Asia-Pacific Society for Applied Phycology (APSAP). On the occasion of the 9th APCAB, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) in Thailand has been tasked with organizing the conference under the theme of “Algae for Food, Feed, Fuel and Beyond” on 15-18 November, 2016 at the Century Park Hotel, Bangkok Thailand.
This conference will provide a platform for students, scientists, technologists and people who are working with both macro- and microalgae in the government organizations and the industry in the Asia-Pacific region to share their experience. The majority of algal research in the Asia-Pacific region is in the field of taxonomy, biology, physiology, ecology, cultivation, bioprocesses, biotechnology, bioinformatics and systems biology of macro- and microalgae, including value-added products and their applications. Therefore, the conference will gather experts of all fields to exchange ideas and experience. The participants can update their research work status, knowledge, technology and policy. Moreover, the aim of this conference is to expand the networks, partnerships and collaborations between different universities and/or entrepreneurs in the field.
