IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society (Malaysia Chapter) is pleased to announce the 5th installation of our flagship conference, IEEE-EMBS Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Sciences (IECBES 2018). In this installation, the conference returns to Borneo - this time in the very heart of Sarawak – Kuching, from December 3-6, 2018. The theme of the meeting is “Innovations in Global Healthcare”. Consistent with our theme, we are seeking to arrange for plenary keynotes from leading industrial and academic scientists, who will give forward looking visions as well as current technological/knowledge limitations in our field - to help focus and spark innovations in healthcare. A broad array of scientific tracks will cover diverse topics of cutting-edge research and innovation in biomedical engineering, healthcare technology R&D, translational clinical research, technology transfer and entrepreneurship, and biomedical engineering education. In addition to the high-profile keynotes, the conference program will feature mini symposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and poster sessions, sessions for students and young professions, sessions for clinicians and entrepreneurs, and exhibits from vendors and universities. We look forward to meeting you in Kuching, Sarawak – the city of great history and legends.
IECBES 2018 invites knowledge sharing on a spectrum of topics within the EMB bandwidth, relevant but not limited to the following tracks:
IECBES was first organized in 2010, and has been organized bi-annually since. The conference has been steadily growing in stature internationally. 2016 saw the conference dubbed as the regional IEEE-EMBS conference, a significant milestone and a testament to the reputation of the conference. Besides presenting and sharing research findings to a global audience – we the organizers are always seeking to create avenues to spark collaboration and possible mentorship. Making the right connections at an event of this scale is essential for expanding your research area - through key collaborations and contact points.
