II Brazil-Argentine Microfluidics Congress - V Congreso de Microfluídica Argentina
Córdoba, Argentina, October 23-25, 2019
First Circular & Call for Papers
Following the successful first bilateral Brazil-Argentine Microfluidics Congress, we are very pleased to invite you to participate in the II Brazil-Argentine Microfluidics Congress in conjunction with the V Congreso de Microfluídica Argentina, to be held in the city of Córdoba, Argentina, from the 23th to the 25th of October, 2019.
The congress is the second joint initiative between the Argentine and Brazilian scientific communities in Microfluidics to strengthen the scientific and technological collaboration between the two countries and the region.
Microfluidics is a multidisciplinary scientific and technological area in accelerated development stage with fruitful intercrossed relationship with industry. Prediction and control of the behavior of small volumes of fluids (nanoliter to picoliter) at small scales (nanometers to micrometers) have allowed successful industrial applications from the inkjet printhead in the late 1970s to the present revolutionary development of lab-on-chip and organ-on-a-chip devices in medicine, pharmaceutics, chemistry, biology, physics, biomedical engineering and analysis (chemical analysis, environmental monitoring, medical diagnostics, DNA testing, single cell). Possible advantages of microfluidics applications are: precision, control, small volumes, low cost, low energy, fast processes, and portability.
The first joint Brazil-Argentine Microfluidics Congress was organized at PUC-Rio in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2018. The first microfluidics workshop in Brazil was organized in 2011 whereas the corresponding first argentine congress was held in 2014.
The goal of this edition is to gather researchers and students from academia and industry to discuss the most recent innovations in the field and involve a growing number of participants in the region.
In addition to talks by invited speakers, participants will have the opportunity to present their work through oral and poster contributions. The conference will have a Book with ISBN. Panel discussion with the regional industry for technological innovation and expo of microfluidics-related products will be organized. Students contributors will be able to apply for financial support.

Córdoba is the second most important city in Argentina and an important urban development in the central region of the country. Even though it is located in a vast valley, it is surrounded by the heights of several mountain range systems with a special, enjoyable and unique microclimate. The dazzling City of Córdoba opens its doors to tourism not only through its history and culture but also by means of its impressive sites, with plenty of eye-catching scenarios.
