Call for Abstracts 

The South Asia Biosafety Conference (SABC) is the preeminent regional gathering of scientists, regulators and other stakeholders who are interested in biotechnology applications for sustainable development, environmental risk assessment, and biosafety regulation in South Asia.  This year’s conference will be held at the Taj West End in Bangalore, India from September 11-13, 2017. The organizing committee welcomes submission of abstracts for both oral and poster presentations.
Oral Presentations

SABC 2017 has two sessions open to a limited number of participants interested in submitting an abstract for an oral presentation. These are Plenary Session II: Crop Biotechnology and Biosafety in South Asia or Plenary Session V: New Applications of Biotechnology - Focus on Forestry and Biofuels. Submissions should describe research that is relevant to the topic of either session, and preference will be given to those abstracts that have a strong emphasis on biosafety-related research.


      The 5th Annual South Asia Biosafety Conference Poster Program is an opportunity for individuals to share their research, findings and achievements with colleagues at the conference. Presenting a poster is a noteworthy way to share expertise or accomplishment, and poster presenters will have a dedicated time to present and discuss their work with the diverse group of attendees.
