Online Conference

You are invited to participate in the International Online Conference on Bio-hybrid Approaches to Solar Energy Conversion. It will take place from Tuesday 27th to Thursday 29th October at 11:00h UTC/London - 12:00h CET/Paris.

Currently, biological machineries including proteins, enzymes and whole cells are being integrated with synthetic materials for (solar) energy conversion, from fuel production to power generation. One of the key challenges for success in this rapidly growing field is to control the bio-material interface to enhance the complex charge/energy exchange processes which often form the bottleneck of the overall conversion process. This highly interdisciplinary conference showcases advanced techniques to characterise, design and synthesise the bio-material interface, and provides a forum for biologists, material scientists, electrochemists, and spectroscopists, to share ideas for tackling this challenge.



The main topics coverend by this conference are:

  • Fundamentals in bioenergy

  • Fundamentals in biology

  • Biohybrid systems

  • Techniques for biological systems
Submit your contribution

There will be three types of contributions:

  • Invited speakers. Oral contribution by invitation of the organizing committee
  • Contributed talks by oral submission
  • ePoster

In order to present an oral contribution you need to register, submit an abstract and select your preference for oral contribution. Contributed orals will be selected by the organizing committee. Oral abstracts not selected for oral will have the chance to be presented as an ePoster. For presenting an ePoster contribution it is necessary to present an ePoster before the deadline for ePoster submission.

Invited Speakers will receive an invitation via e-mail. They have to register and submit an abstract of their contribution before the deadline for oral abstracts.

What do I need to join?


In order to register to the conference, you need to log in nanoGe (or create an account if you are not registered yet) and buy a ticket as usually. Upload a profile picture if it is not yet in the system. You will receive the registration confirmation via e-mail.

Submit your contribution

Participants can be part of the program presenting their work to the audience through a Contributed Talk or an ePoster. Once you are registered in the conference, you will be able to submit your contribution in the Abstract Submission tab.

Join the live conference

Two hours before the start of the Oral Session, the Live Conference tab will be available at the conference website. Participants should log in and enter the tab, where they will have access to the streaming video for the Oral Session and a direct buttom to the ePoster Session platform.

Join the ePoster Session

The ePoster Session chat platform will be available during the conference through the Live Conference tab. There, a “Go to conference” buttom will be available for participants to join the chat platform at any moment. The ePoster Session starts officially after the Oral Sessions. The instructions on how the chat platform works are available in the Instructions for participants and will be explained at the end of the Oral Sessions.

Conference on demand

Registered participants will have access to the videos of the Oral Sessions on demand. Videos will be available there for registered (and logged) users for three months. It will allow them to rewatch the best moments in case they have missed any session. nanoGe will upload the videos after the sessions and make them available in a private tab for conference members.  

For non-registered users, the conference will be available on-demand the week after the conference. Once you buy the ticket for an on-demand conference, you will have access to the videos for three months.
