Title: 2017 World Congress on Advances in Nano, Bio, Robotics and Energy (ANBRE17)

Organized by: Int'l Association of Structural Engineering & Mechanics (IASEM)
                        Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST)
                        Korea Association of Computational Mechanics (KACM)

In association with Techno-Press Journals (www.techno-press.org)

   After the serial success of World Congress on Advances in Nano, Bio, Robotics, and Energy (ANBRE15), it has been decided that ANBRE17 will be held on 28 August - 1 September 2017 at KINTEX(Korea International Exhibition & Convention Center) in Ilsan(Seoul), Korea.

As the "ANBRE17" Congress will be organized by combining international conferences of different but beneficially interactive topics to meet the demands from participants for more variety in the up-to-date topics. Four international conferences are organized under the umbrella of the ANBRE17 Congress. The participants will have an excellent opportunity to learn new ideas from other Conferences of different topics. Thus the Congress will be a premier international forum that brings together academics and practicing engineers to exchange frontier research results in the fusion technologies in the topics of Nano, Bio, Robotics, and Energy Research. You are cordially invited to participate in this interesting event.

The ANBRE17 Congress consists of the following 2017 International Conferences on:

 Advances in Nano Research(ICANR17)
 Advances in Biomaterials and Biomechanics in Bioengineering(ICBME17)
 Advances in Robotics Research(ICARR17)
Advances in Energy Research(ICER17)

Important Dates

The Congress will be held during August 28 - September 1, 2017. Other important dates are:

March 31, 2017                   Submission of conference abstracts
May 31, 2017                      Submission of conference papers (*4 options - see "Call for Papers")
June 30, 2017                     Last day for early registration
July  31, 2017                    
Last day for pre-registration (for inclusion of paper in proceedings)

General Program

- to be announced -


Those who have interests in the emerging technologies in a wide range of topics of ANBRE17 Congress are invited to submit one-full-page abstracts to the Secretariat of Congress. After acceptance of abstracts, the 4-20 page proceeding papers(single column) should be submitted. Both abstracts and proceeding papers should be submitted through the TeMUS (Techno-Press electronic Manuscript Upload System). Distinguished papers will be invited to be included in a number of special issues of Techno-Press journals.
As the conferences are organized in close cooperation with the Techno-Press Journals, authors may have choices to submit their papers as stated below.

1. Full proceeding paper (4-20 pages)
2. Paper published any Techno-Press Journal (may be presented without preparing another paper)
3. Paper submitted to/accepted by any Techno-Press Journal (may be presented without preparing another paper)
4. Others: Pre-arrangement required

Detailed instructions to prepare the abstracts and proceeding papers will be available in the Guidelines for Abstract/Paper Submission. [Guidelines of Conference]

Mini Symposium Organizers 

 Those who are interested in organizing a mini symposium (MS) with papers in the areas of their expertise are invited to organize a mini symposium at the ANBRE17. A mini symposium may have a single session or multiple sessions with 6-8 papers each. In case of successful organization, the mini symposium organizer’s paper will be considered as an invited paper and he/she will be granted free registration. For Guidelines for Session Organizers, the prospective mini symposium organizers should inquire with the Congress Secretariat or visit: [General Guidelines for Mini Symposium (MS) Organizers]

Organized Minisymposia




MS Title

Special Issue of 'Techno-Press Journals'

Some selected papers will be considered for publication in the  "Conference Special Issue" of Techno-Press journals.  Chairmen of each conference will be invited to serve as the guest editor of this issue.

Those who are interested in organizing special issues for the Techno-Press journal of their choice on their own are encouraged to contact the Congress Secretariat for more details. The submitted papers should be peer reviewed under the guest editor’s responsibility and only the accepted papers will be published. If some successful mini symposium organizers at the Conference wish to organize special issue, they will be invited to serve as a guest editor for the special issue of the journal.
