The fast-paced advances in medicine and biological sciences, and the increasing complexity of emerging technologies call for more responsive and flexible legislations and regulations. In this context, the Omani National Bioethics Committee (NBC) is organizing the "Second International Bioethics Conference: Ethical and Legal Issues of Emerging Biomedical Science and Research" in Muscat, Oman, from 2 to 4 February 2020.

This conference attempts to address contemporary and emerging challenges related to legislations with regard to existing and emerging bioethical issues. The topics will cover the interlinked relationship between bioethics and legislations, advances in medicine and biology, issues at the beginning and end of life, and issues related to medical practice.

In addition, the conference will explore how regulatory measures beyond legislation can aid to advance the aims and objectives of bioethics and legislations, especially with the rapidly changing fields of science and medicine.

This conference is organized in cooperation with UNESCO. The working language of the conference will be English.
