We are honored to invite you to attend our conference
Second Symposium on Electrospinning and Tissue Engineering (PICETE),
which will be held in Warsaw, Poland early autumn 2018.
The idea of the PICETE meeting is to gather not only Polish and Israeli experts, but also scientists and entrepreneurs from around the world, who exchange their knowledge, experience and research innovations in the basics of the electrospinning process and innovative materials dedicated to tissue engineering.
This is the realization of our idea of a joint conference which grew out of our long, cordial friendship and collaboration. We believe that starting from our deep friendship, we will be able to make this conference time a wonderful, warm time from various perspectives.
We look forward to seeing you in Warsaw.
Prof. dr hab. Pawel Lukasz Sajkiewicz
Institute of Fundamental Technological Research PAS Warsaw, Poland

Participants are requested to submit electronic abstracts for oral or poster presentation on one of the following topics of the conference:
Book of abstracts is available here.
Thank You for participation in Second Symposium on Electrospinning and Tissue Engineering.
PICETE 2018 will take place in the IPPT PAN building (pl: Instytut Podstawowych Problemow Techniki, Polska Akademia Nauk/ eng: Institute of Fundamental Technological Research, Polish Academy of Sciences). This building is one of the most modern scientific units in this part of the city. It was put into use almost 10 years ago. However, the history of the institute goes back much further to 1952. The first Director of the Institute was prof. Ignacy Malecki. The most important fields of the Institute's expertise include theoretical and applied mechanics, development of materials for various applications, acoustoelectronics, ultrasonic medical diagnostics etc.
Laboratory of Polymers and Biomaterial IPPT PAN is a part of IPPT PAN, and Co-organizator of the conference. The challenges of the modern world, changing very rapidly, shift the point of gravity of activity of this group more in the direction of applied research, mostly in the area of bio-medical applications of polymeric materials. Basing on our fundamental knowledge in the area of polymer physics, materials science, chemistry and biotechnology we are entering deeper and deeper into rapidly growing field of tissue engineering. We are naturally supported by our new location among other institutes of Polish Academy of Sciences with biological profiles, being our natural partners for scientific cooperation. Great part of our activity is related to polymeric biodegradable scaffolds for tissue regeneration as well as materials for drug release. Being open for various methods of scaffolds formation, at the moment we are concentrated on the formation of scaffolds by electrospinning, cooperating from the very beginning with Prof. Tomasz Kowalewski from our Institute, who is a pioneer in the field of electrospinning not only in our Institute but also in Poland.
