Following the success of ABC 2015, we are pleased to announce that the
Centre for Biomedical Ethics at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine,
National University of Singapore will be holding the 2nd Asian Bioethics
Colloquium on *22 to 24 February, 2016*. ABC 2016 will once again bring
together scholars from Asia in an effort to boost the development of
bioethics scholarship in the region, with a focus on developing early
career scholars and assisting them with publication in the field.

During the colloquium, established bioethicists are expected to serve
as mentors of emerging scholars and comment on their draft papers, which
will cover various topics of bioethics. There will be ample time for
discussion of the papers presented in a mentoring environment.

application forms, aspiring scholars are asked to indicate the intended
topic of their paper for the colloquium in an email to

​ ​

medganj at nus.edu.sg with subject heading "ABC 2016: Intention to Apply”.
Early determination of topics will enable organisers to arrange
appropriate mentoring during the event.

Thereafter, junior applicants who wish to improve their scholarly
potential are invited to submit draft

of not more than 250 words. Limited grants are available. Those who wish to
