On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to present the European South Atlantic Biophysics Congress that will take place in Donostia-San Sebastian (Basque Country), on June 5 th -7 th , 2024. The event will include a Satellite Workshop on June 4 th -5 th , 2024, focused on early-stage researchers, with a total attendance of 50 students.
The meeting is being organized as a joint effort by the Spanish Biophysical Society (SBE), the French Biophysical Society (SBF) and the Portuguese Biophysical Societies (SPBf), to gather scientists for presenting their most exciting biophysical research work.
Main Local Organizer CIC biomaGUNE is managing the preparation of the ESAB 2024 Congress in collaboration with local institutions such as Donostia International Physics Center, CIC bioGUNE, Instituto Biofísica and the University of Basque Country UPV/EHU.

This congress is the first event of a regional agreement between the three societies in order to organize periodic conferences promoting biophysics, especially amongst young scientist in the South-West of Europe. This congress will be an excellent opportunity for researchers to meet and discuss opportunities to collaborate in a genuinely multidisciplinary environment in the field of Biophysics. We hope that the participation of three societies will broaden the networking activities and the dissemination of knowledge in biophysics.
We expect that this Congress will become recognized as a reference meeting in Europe for a large and diverse community of researchers and companies working in Biophysics, with special focus on young biophysicists.
We are setting up an inspiring event that will provide plenty of opportunities for interaction and networking.

We look forward to seeing you in Donostia!
