About This Conference

The Integrated and Continuous Biomanufacturing (ICB) Conference is ECI’s premiere international conference in continuous and integrated biomanufacturing. As global competitive pressures continue to force companies to innovate to succeed, integrated continuous processing creates opportunities to accelerate process development and reduce manufacturing costs while enhancing flexibility and product quality. Ultimately, these collective improvements in efficiency and quality will help us better achieve our primary objective in the field – to increase patient access to transformative therapies. 

Impressive technological advances have been made over the past decade to enable the implementation of continuous bioprocessing. ICB VI aims to build on the strong momentum generated in previous conferences of this series by developing an exciting and engaging program showcasing progress in implementation of integrated continuous biomanufacturing technologies for GMP biomanufacturing via case studies of clinical and commercial bioprocesses. ICB VI will highlight progress across the ICB discipline, including areas related to Regulatory Affairs, Simplification, Emerging Therapeutic Modalities, Process Analytical Technology (PAT), Sustainability, as well as Modeling, Automation, and Control. 

ICB VI will bring together leading scientists and engineers from academia, industry and regulatory who are actively engaged in creating and enabling integrated continuous biomanufacturing. We look forward to welcoming invitees to Leesburg, Virginia, USA to reflect on the field’s progress and to harness our collective capabilities to drive towards a more efficient and sustainable future. 

On behalf of the ICB Conference Steering Committee, we are also pleased to announce that ICB VII is planned to occur in Europe in the Fall of 2025. This will return the biannual conference series to ‘odd’ calendar years. Additional details on organization and site selection will be shared at a future date.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a not-for-profit, 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 conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Poster sessions will be scheduled for evening discussion as well. 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 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.

Smoking is prohibited at ECI conferences and conference functions.
