Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

It is our privilege and pleasure to invite you to attend the fourth edition of International Conference Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Biomedical and Environmental Sciences, “IC-ANMBES 2016” to be held in Brasov, Romania during June 29th- July 1st 2016, organized by Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania.

The conference is designed as an international forum for effective exchange of knowledge and experience among researchers, from all over the world, active in various theoretical and applied areas of: biophysics, medicine, bioengineering, environmental protection and food safety. We hope that this conference will represent an ideal opportunity for you to stay abreast of the latest developments in those areas of research, to present and discuss the most important scientific problems during the scientific sessions, as well as to meet old friends and make new ones. Invited and Regular Oral Lectures, together with Posters presented by scientists from both the academic and industrial areas will form the high-level scientific program. To keep up with the highest standards, each contribution will be peer-reviewed by international experts. Based on these recommendations, the scientific committee will decide upon acceptance.

To encourage young scientists and PhD students to present their best contributions, a panel of judges selected from members of the International Selection Committee will select the best posters presented to be awarded a prize in thePoster Award competition.

The “IC-ANMBES 2016“ will cover different aspects of analytical and analytical methods, which will be presented in the frame of two main themes:
1. Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Biophysical and Biomedical Applications
2. Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Environmental and Food Safety


We would also like to welcome the representatives from the industry to present their latest products. We are sure that we can achieve very positive dialog, new business opportunities and networking.
Besides the scientific aspects of the Conference, our guests will have every chance to enjoy the hospitality and the beauties of our historic town, Brasov.

See you in Brasov!

Brasov Travel Guide

The city of Brasov is located in the centre of Romania, about 180 km north of Bucharest. It takes about 3 hours drive from Bucharest International Airport to Brasov. Intercity trains and European roads are connecting Brasov to the major cities in Romania and Europe.

Brasov is a famous beautiful city in the middle of the country located at 176 km north of Bucharest. Brasov is an old medieval city. The buildings of Brasov can tell you a lot about the evolution of the city throughout different ages. Also known as Kronstadt or Corona, Brasov was the home of some of the best craftsmen, jewelers, and traders living in Transylvania. The city of Brasov boasts of a rich historic heritag. Surrounded on three sides by mountains, it was a perfect place for a medieval settlement. The old city, founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211, is one of the best preserved. Lately it was thoroughly restored to the delight of an increasing number of tourists. It was an important centre of resistance against foreign invaders during the turbulent medieval period.

Being an old medieval city, Brasov gives you the opportunity to visit a lot of old historical monuments and museums that reflect the cultural as well as historical importance of the place. The old city itself is very well preserved, and is best seen by taking the cable-car to the top of Tâmpa Mountain (995 m), a beautiful lookout.

The most important historical monuments were built in that period: The Old City Hall, “Podul Batusilor” (today hosting the Cerbul Carpatin restaurant), The Old Granary (today the lovely Bistrot de l'Arte), the Black Church (14th century), St. Nicolae Church in Scheii Brasovului - dating back to the 14th century, First Romanian School - a museum with the first Romanian printing press among many other firsts the Rope Street - a most narrow street in Europe, The "Brasov Citadel Fortress" - Cetatuia Brasovului , The Orthodox church of the Dormition of the Theotokos, built in 1896, Schei - the historically Bulgarian and then Romanian neighborhood outside of the old walled city.

The biggest attraction in town is the Gothic Protestant Church built between 1385 and 1477. It is known by the name of "Black Church" because of its smoke-blackened walls after a fire in 1689. The establishment was recently restored, and tourists can now fully enjoy listening to organ concerts or admire the enchanting oriental rug collection.

The Council Square (Piata Sfatului), known to the Saxon population as the Marktplatz, is the heart of the old medieval Brasov. Lined with beautiful red-roofed merchant houses, the square is one of the finest in the country. In the center of the square lies the Council House, built in 1420 The tower, called the Trumpets Tower, is in fact much older, and was once a watchtower for approaching barbarians before being incorporated into the main building.

Dracula's Castle situated at 30 Km from Brasov, between the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Mountains, Bran Castle is an important national monument and landmark of the Romanian tourism, due not only to the beauty of the Castle and the landscape but also to the legend of Count Dracula. Bran Castle was originally a fortress built by the Knights of the Teutonic Order in the year 1212. It was known by the name of Dietrichstein at the time. In addition to its unique architecture, the castle is famous because of persistent myths that it was once the home of Vlad the Impaler, a famous or infamous medieval warlord
(http://www.brancastlemuseum.ro).

Today a historical monument, Peleş Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle placed in an idyllic setting in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, at 44 Km from Brasov, in Prahova County, on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia, built between 1873 and 1914; its inauguration was held in 1883. Peles Castle is considered by many one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe. It was the final resting place for several Romanian monarchs including King Carol I, who died here in 1914.

Poiana Brasov is the favorite tourist destination in Romania. Only 13 km far from Brasov, up in the mountains you can find a unique winter resort: Poiana Brasov with about ten major ski slopes, Romanian style restaurants, swimming pools, and tennis courts. In summer there are tennis courts, swimming pools, boat rides, mountain climbing, horse riding and many other great sports activities.
