BEBPA conferences include 2-3 days of presentations, workshops and round-table discussions on topics of current interest to the analytical biopharmaceutical community. It is hoped that these presentations and discussions will provide topics for future white paper working groups.

Please come and participate in the next BEBPA conference. This is an opportunity to shape the future of the association and to ensure it addresses the issues of concern to you.

We are currently accepting Topics and Abstracts for our 2018 meetings.
