The IBCA 2023 conference will take place in the SuperC building of RWTH Aachen University

The 5th Conference on Impedance-Based Cellular Assays will be hosted by RWTH Aachen University. It will take place in the city of Aachen at the Super C. The building got its name from its appearance, a large C. The SuperC is RWTH Aachen University's service center, which stands right next to the main building and combines a number of services for students under one roof, such as the Student Secretariat, the International and Examinations Office and the so-called Career Center, which were widely distributed before the building came into existence. In addition, the building houses exhibition areas, conference and seminar rooms, which are intended to become a meeting point in the core area of the university. The building was named after its appearance, a large C. Aachen is spa town located near the borders with Belgium and the Netherlands. Germany’s westernmost city offers some significant cultural and historical sights such as the Cathedral (Aachener Dom) with its Treasury, the Gothic Townhall and the Ludwig Forum for International Art. With the Rhenish-Westphalian Technical University (RWTH), funded since 2007 as part of the Excellence Initiative, Aachen has one of the largest and most traditional technical universities in Europe, along with other universities.
