The Spatial Biology Congress: Series of meetings take place in Asia, Europe, and North America every year.

Current meetings
  • International Spatial Biology Congress July 11 &12
  • Spatial Biology Congress: Asia: 21 & 22 November
Future meetings
  • American Spatial Biology Congress is scheduled for April/May 2025. (See the 2024 Agenda)

Spatial biology is heralding a revolution in our understanding of complex biological processes with significant potential for creating novel clinical insights into various disease areas.

As spatial biology continues to evolve, its impact on personalized medicine and therapeutic development is increasingly profound, making it an essential area of discussion at these meetings. A cutting-edge field within biomedical research, its interdisciplinary nature often attracts younger scientists who bring fresh perspectives and innovative approaches to the field.

Our meetings feature a “Start-Up and Pioneers Stage” where we provide space for flash oral presentations to be give by early career researchers and others.

Why attend the conference


"The mix of different audiences, from biologists, to bioinformaticians / data scientists, to solution providers. I loved the panel discussions, where the different players exchanged ideas on how to progress a field that is in its infancy."


Build new partnerships and collaborations for new research.


Flash oral presentations for start-ups and poster presentations to amplify your research to the next level

Our Commitment To Sustainability

Global Engage is committed to hosting sustainable meetings.

Event App

We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting.


You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now, we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how leftovers are processed.


An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
