The 18th International Symposium on Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence, ISBC 2014

23–28 June 2014
Uppsala, Sweden

The 18th International Symposium on Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence will be held 23-28 June 2014 in Uppsala, Sweden. We hope that you will find the city of Uppsala and Uppsala University, founded in 1477, a worthy host of the symposium. The ISBC2014 will find inspiration from the academic excellence of Uppsala, as exemplified by local scientific giants as Carl von Linnaeus, Anders Celsius, and more recently the chemistry Nobel laureates The Svedberg and  Arne Tiselius. The vicinity to Stockholm, closeness to Sweden's largest airport (Arlanda), the splendid nature of Uppland, with its soothing archipelago, and the inspirational Swedish summer we hope will be further reasons for you to come and visit us in June 2014.
