Parallel Sessions

The unique program of Galatech2023 comprised 43 parallel sessions. Hot topics and new ideas on biomedicine and sustainable development were hotly discussed and exchanged by presenters and visitors in the three-day’s diversified program. With its huge success in Japan, we believe this cluster meeting could play a vital role in bringing the world’s experts and scientists to reunite during and after the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and rebuilding an international platform for them to show their research breakthrough and promote mutual cooperation on the global stage.

Welcome Banquet

Before, during and after the conference, we received warm support and valuable suggestions from the delegates on how to better plan and organize the next conference. Depending on the invaluable and precious experiences, we are quite confident in Galatech-2024 which would be more successful. All committee members are looking forward to meeting you again in 2024.
