Abstract : The authors investigate $f$-biharmonic maps $u: (M,g)\rightarrow(N,h)$ from a Riemannian manifold into a Riemannian manifold with non-positive sectional curvature, and derive that if $\int_{M}f^{p}|\tau(u)|^{p}dv_{g}<\infty$, $\int_{M}|\tau(u)|^{2}dv_{g}<\infty$ and $\int_{M}|du|^{2}dv_{g}<\infty$, then $u$ is harmonic. When $u$ is an isometric immersion, the authors also get that if $u$ satisfies some integral conditions, then it is minimal. These results give an affirmative partial answer to conjecture 4 (generalized Chen's conjecture for $f$-biharmonic submanifolds).
