The explosive development of the life sciences and its expansion into other disciplines such as the IT field is yielding groundbreaking discoveries from novel genes and bio-products to cutting-edge nanotechnology, resulting in a transformed science landscape with profound global applications in understanding life, eradicating diseases, securing a more equitable food and water supply/distribution as well as creating novel bio-industries and products. The sheer scope and number of these scientific advances and the never-ending influx of knowledge, while at times overwhelming, both challenge and inspire hope for an improved quality of life for all.
Hiroshima, Japan, the City of Peace, is proud to host the 2014 Life Sciences Conference and Sustainability, which will coincide with the 69th Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Remembrance Month.
ACLS 2014 is an international, peer-reviewed conference. Full papers are welcome, but not required. Registered participants with an accepted abstract and/or refereed full paper will be published in the ACLS 2014 Conference Proceedings (ISSN 2188-3971).
The three-day conference will provide an interdisciplinary platform for academics, researchers, policy makers, students and professionals. With the theme Global Trends in Life Sciences, it is hoped that this intersection of disciplines will help scientists and professionals to stay at the leading edge of recent advances in life sciences and sustainability, act as a catalyst for further research, improve international collaboration while bridging the scientific and technological differences between developed and developing nations, and foster global health security.
We welcome submission from the following life science and sustainability perspectives:
Biodiversity / Conservation Biology
Capacity Building / Development
Data Management (modeling, mining, scalability, etc.)
Food Chemistry, Engineering, Processing
Medical and Veterinary Sciences
Pharmacology / Pharmaceutical Science
