The annual meeting of the ASB is the largest annual conference in Australia and New Zealand dedicated to biophysics. The ASB meeting provides an excellent opportunity to present your work, exchange ideas, learn about the latest research, stay connected with your biophysics colleagues and meet potential collaborators.
The meeting is usually held in the first week of December in a state capital city or a regional city in Australia. Every few years, we hold joint meetings with other societies, including the Australian Physiological Society, the Physiological Society of New Zealand or the RACI Physical Chemistry.
If you are interested in organising a symposium on a special topic or an EMCR networking event, please contact the ASB president.Impressions from the ASB 2021

The Australian Society for Biophysics strives to achieve balance across gender, geography and experience in all aspects of their annual meeting. The ASB executive council endeavours to achieve this balance through equal female and male representation on the local organizing committees and session chairs as well as through invitation of high-quality male and female speakers and the selection of speakers from the submitted abstracts from across Australia in line with the gender balance in our research community. As part of this gender equity policy the ASB will use data collected during registration and abstract submission and data from the conference program to determine the gender balance at our annual meetings. The statistics will be availalbe on the ASB website.
