The advancement of chemistry, chemical science and engineering research in Indonesia need more acceleration to be in line with the state of the art of world research to so that it can contribute to create a better world to live. The materials and biomaterials field, as example, has been expanding rapidly over the past decade. This growth is due to many factors, including medical needs, new biosynthetic and synthetic chemistries, and new technological innovations. The need to improve tailoring of materials chemistry, control of structure and morphology of materials, and new insight into biological interactions with materials underlies the field, particularly when considering biological interfaces as dynamic environments that can be navigated and utilized in a proactive way.
Scientists who dedicate their research activity to materials and biomaterials pass through the typical dichotomy that often characterizes the basic research. On one side is the wish of exploring new frontiers of chemistry, physics, biology, engineering, medicine, pharmaceutics and all other disciplines to which materials and biomaterials can be applied. The constantly improving scientific knowledge would feed the freedom of attempting new strategies for producing materials with greater tailored and improved characteristics.
The design, synthesis, and modification of novel materials and biomaterials allow for enhanced performance for industrial and environmental related applications. In the meantime, the research and development in the past five years has been increasing, involving researchers from government institutions and academia from many universities all over the world. To support the acceleration and the integration, it is necessary to provide a forum which gathers all national stake holders to build mutual understanding, to share information, resources and roles, and to go with national development direction to the final goal of welfare of the nation and worldwide in general.
Jenderal Soedirman University, Diponegoro University, Sebelas Maret University and Semarang State University together with Indonesian Biomaterials Society are going to hold the forum by presenting The 11th Joint Chemistry conference in Conjunction with The 4th Regional Biomaterials Scientific Meeting. In this conference, we are collaborating with institutions, universities and stake holders to organize a two days conference, with the scope i.e.: Chemistry, chemical sciences and education, synthesis of Hydroxyapatite based on natural resources, biodegradable materials, metall, Polymer, Ceramic and composite as material implant, simulation and modelling of Biomaterials, soft tissue Biomaterials, development of In Vitro and In Vivo Method and also biomaterials as wound healing.
The purposes of the conference are:
1. To provide a forum for scientific discussion, professional networking, research collaboration, education, and dissemination of scientific research, innovation and industrial products.
2. To increase the quality of research and development in biomaterials science and technology for local, regional and international scientists or academia.
3. To encourage the local and regional young scientists to attend and present their works at the regional/international level of biomaterials conference.
All contributed paper will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published in IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering (indexed by Scopus).
