IEEE EMBS Hosts 46th Annual International Conference and 2nd Women in Biomedical Engineering Forum in Orlando, Fla.

PISCATAWAY, N.J. , May 29 /Businesswire/ - Biomedical engineers, clinicians, technicians, researchers and educators from across the world will gather in Orlando, Fla., to showcase and discuss the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, data science, neuroengineering, and more during the 46th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS), which will be held from July 15-19. The conference theme, "Technology and its promise for equity and access for well-health,” addresses the positive impact biomedical engineers can have on society.

During this event – the world’s largest conference dedicated to international biomedical engineering – a diverse array of scientific topics will be covered, from cutting-edge research and innovation in biomedical engineering, to healthcare technology and translational clinical research, particularly around women and children’s health. Aside from the core scientific topics, the conference will also include symposia and workshops about successful entrepreneurship, improvements to biomedical engineering education, and best practices for securing grants.

The conference is structured as a five-day program encompassing 12 different themes relevant to the current state of the biomedical engineering and healthcare landscape, along with a plenary speaker for each topic. Additionally, attendees have the choice of participating in over 20 mini symposia, five special sessions, and 11 workshops. Attendees will be able to participate in many networking and social events in-between and after each session.

Finally, the 2024 Women in Biomedical Engineering (WiBME) Forum will be held during the conference, which will include four keynote speakers, and highlight the role of women in biomedical engineering and healthcare advances. The two-day forum, which is the second iteration of what is now an annual event, will also have networking sessions, which require advance registration due to the limited number of seats available.
