About This Conference

Single-Use Technologies III: Scientific and Technological Advancements is the third event of an ECI conference series started in 2015 and focusing on the scientific and engineering aspects of single-use technology.

The conference will be a 3-day event (Sept. 23 to 26, 2018) in Snowbird, UT, USA and will target 100-120 attendees. The conference will have speakers from industry and academia, single-use final product (e.g. bags, assemblies) manufacturers, film/resin manufacturers as well as keynote speakers from the biopharmaceutical industry, experts in polymers/materials science and manufacturers of novel biomedical devices.

The third series of this conference will build on the success of the first two editions and expand further to include scientific and technological developments in single-use upstream and downstream processing for a variety of biologics and will invite presentations looking at the challenge of integration and continuous processing approaches and how single-use technology can accelerate the quest for speed and flexibility in this space.  A new session on cell and gene therapy is organized to discuss the specific requirements of the industry for emerging applications of single-use systems.  It is clear that collaborative work and multidisciplinary discussions are needed to allow implementation of single-use technology to reach its full potential.  In order for better understanding and communication among various functional areas, half-day (Sept. 23, 2018) pre-conference workshops will share fundamental knowledge on polymers and cells.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording/photographing of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
