EMBC – International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society


EMBC 2018

About EMBS & EMBC

EMBS, organized in 1953, is a Society within the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. With over 10, 000 members and 120 local chapters worldwide, the IEEE EMBS is the largest, international Biomedical Engineering organization.

The EMBC is the annual flagship conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, covering a broad range of topics from cutting-edge biomedical and healthcare technology research and development to clinical applications, biomedical education and entrepreneurship. The First Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology was held in Denver, Colorado in 1979 and Chaired by Morton Schwartz.

EMBC is designed to:

  • educate the future biomedical engineers and Electrical Engineers who work in Bio
  • cover a broad range of topics from cutting-edge biomedical and healthcare technology research and development to clinical applications, biomedical education and entrepreneurship that will benefit humanity
  • promote diversity

Annually, EMBC welcomes over 3000 attendees from over 73 countries to our Conference where they enjoy access to all technical sessions, networking opportunities and exhibits. Attendees are:

  • Students (high school, Undergraduate & Graduate)
  • Biomedical Engineers (both academic and industry)
  • Electrical Engineers working in Bio (both academic and industry)
  • Mechanical Engineers (both academic and industry)
  • Medical Doctors
  • Medical Physicists
  • Lawyers
  • Entrepreneurs

EMBC is the Society’s general topic conference.  EMBC themes reflect the mission of the society to advance medicine and biology through the application of engineering sciences and technology, and to translate discoveries into technologies that advance healthcare for humanity.

The spectrum of themes includes:

  • Biomedical Signal Processing
  • Biomedical Imaging & Image Processing
  • Micro- & Nano-bioengineering
  • Cellular & Tissue Engineering
  • Computational & Synthetic Biology
  • Cardiovascular & Respiratory Systems Engineering
  • Neural Engineering
  • Biorobotics & Rehabilitation Engineering
  • Wearable Biomedical Sensors & Systems
  • Therapeutic & Diagnostic Systems, Devices and Technologies
  • Translational Engineering & Healthcare Innovation
  • Biomedical and Health Informatics
  • Biomedical Engineering Education

An EMBS Technical Committee (TC) supports each of our themes.  Each TC works with the Conference Organizing Committee and Conference Editorial Board to ensure technical integrity through the peer review process of manuscripts, creation of a dynamic technical program and selection of invited and keynote speakers.
