The International Biochemistry of Exercise Conference (IBEC) is a unique event in the world of science. The first conference was held in 1968 and second in 1973. Thereafter, every three years exercise scientists, whose passion is exercise biochemistry and in other new disciplines, such as exercise molecular biology, exercise “omics”, and exercise health, met somewhere in the world to exchange scientific presentations and ideas. IBEC is unique in that various small groups of people volunteer to organize, administrate, and raise funds travel for their selected program of speakers to their home city. The 17th IBEC in Beijing follows in the footsteps of the previous 16 conferences.
