Lugar: Córdoba, Argentina.
The congress is the second joint initiative between the Argentine and
Brazilian scientific communities in Microfluidics to strengthen the
scientific and technological collaboration between the two countries and
Microfluidics is a multidisciplinary scientific and technological area in
accelerated development stage with fruitful intercrossed relationship with
industry. Prediction and control of the behavior of small volumes of fluids
(nanoliter to picoliter) at small scales (nanometers to micrometers) have
allowed successful industrial applications from the inkjet printhead in the
late 1970s to the present revolutionary development of lab-on-chip and
organ-on-a-chip devices in medicine, pharmaceutics, chemistry, biology,
physics, biomedical engineering and analysis (chemical analysis,
environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, DNA testing, single cell
analysis). Advantages of microfluidics applications where small is better,
are: precision, high performance, control, small volumes, low cost, low
energy, fast processes, green credentials, portability.
The first joint Brazil-Argentine Microfluidics Congress was organized at
PUC-Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2018 with 135 participants. The first
microfluidics workshop in Brazil was organized in 2011 whereas the
corresponding first argentine congress was held in 2014.
The goal of this edition is to bring together scientists, engineers and
students both from academia and industry to present the most recent
innovations in the field, to discuss future directions in microfluidics
technologies and their persistently extending scope of applications, as
well as to involve a growing number of participants in the region.
The topics will be wide-ranging, from experimental and theoretical
microfluidics to visualization and instrumentation, 3D printing, techniques
and materials for microfabrication.
