This WORLD CONGRESS (the entrepreneurs of the Middle Kingdom think big) "will provide a platform for participants to discuss the unsolved mysteries in molecular & cell biology. The organizing committee of CMCB-2017 devotes itself to supply the most cutting-edge technology information to you. We aim to bring together Experts from academic, industrial professionals and key-decision makers to present their new achievement on their research." As befits a scientific conference, the website promises (12/23/16) that "[d]uring the congress, we will set up a series of activities such as Scientific Program ... ."
It will be a busy time, as BIT's 2nd Annual International Congress of Genetics (ICG-2017) is scheduled at the same time and place.
The "honorary chair" is "Dr. Yuxin Yin, Dean & Director, Peking University, China." "Keynote speakers" are "Dr. Martin Banwell, Professor, Australian National University, Australia; Dr. Christian Patermann, Former Director, European Commission, Germany; Dr. Robert S. Plumb, Professor, Imperial College, London, UK; and Dr. Dongping Zhong, Professor, Ohio State University, USA."
Seems like they might be slipping in the big name department, though. Last year, they had Dr. Arieh Warshel, Distinguished Professor, University of Southern California, USA, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry, and others who "gave their wonderful speeches at keynote forum and are warmly received."
But there is hope. After all, their email says that they want me!
