EnFi 2016 - 9th Meeting "Engineering of Functional Interfaces"

Dear colleagues and friends

I want to welcome you to the next ENFI Meeting 2016 in the capital region of Germany. Engineering of Functional Interfaces is devoted to interdisciplinary work dealing with interfaces between biological components and technical surfaces. Such approaches are needed in different areas such as sensors, biochips, reactors, biomaterials and medical devices. Thus, the idea of this workshop-like meeting is to bring together young scientists with different research tasks but some common interests since one needs to deal with the design and build-up of surfaces and the proper characterization. This shall also stimulate the interaction between different groups and broaden the view of individual scientists.


The meeting is organized in a special format since most of the participants will get the chance to explain their work in a short oral presentation. This is followed by an intensive discussion at the respective posters allowing a good overview on the different presented approaches and a more detailed exchange. This is the main part of the conference and consequently several time slots for poster sessions will be given. In addition, tutorial lectures by invited scientists will cover different aspects of biohybrid systems starting from biomolecules over new devices to suitable transduction techniques.


We would like to invite you to take part in our workshop. It has already a longer lasting tradition and is organized every year. In 2016 the 9th Meeting will be held at the Technical University of Applied Sciences Wildau in the South of Berlin. Welcome!


Fred Lisdat

Chair of the conference
