The Seventh IASTED International Conference on Biomedical Engineering ~BioMed 2010~ (BioMed 2010)
Venue: Congress Innsbruck
|Event Date/Time: Feb 17, 2010||End Date/Time: Feb 19, 2010|
The Seventh IASTED International Conference on
February 17 â€“ 19, 2010
The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
* Technical Committee on Biomedical Engineering
World Modelling and Simulation Forum (WMSF)
In recent years, with the aid of engineering and information technology, biomedical engineering has emerged as a high-tech field, generating innovation in such areas as medical imaging, bioinformatics, MEMS and nanotechnology, new biomaterials and sensors, medical robotics, and neurobiology. Scientists and engineers in this field have recently been working towards such advances as developing artificial organs that mimic natural human organs, conducting telemedicine, performing surgeries with robots, creating a laboratory-on-a-chip, and controlling robots through natural animal brain matter.
BioMed 2010 is intended to be an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange the latest research, results, and ideas in biomedical engineering.
All papers submitted to this conference will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.
BioMed 2010 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:
* Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2010)
* Modelling, Identification and Control (MIC 2010)
* Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks (PDCN 2010)
* Software Engineering (SE 2010)
* Signal Processing, Pattern Recognition and Applications (SPPRA 2010)
* Computer Graphics and Imaging (CGIM 2010)
Innsbruck is nestled in the valley of the Inn River and tucked between the Austrian Alps and the Tuxer mountain range. It has twice hosted the Winter Olympics and is surrounded by the eight ski regions of the Olympic Ski World, including the Stubai Glacier, which offers skiing year round. Climbing the 14th century Stadtturm on Herzog Friedrich Strasse provides a stunning view of the town and the breathtaking scenery that surrounds it. Concerts at Ambras Castle provide listening pleasure in a beautiful renaissance setting. The sturdy medieval houses and sidewalk cafÃ©s of Old Town Innsbruck beckon you to sit for a while and watch people stroll by. With its unique blend of historical, intellectual, and recreational pursuits, Innsbruck offers something for every visitor. BioMed 2010 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter.
