MBEC 2014 "Towards new horizons in biomedical engineering"

Deadline for abstracts April 15th

The 6th European Conference of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (MBEC 2014) will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 7th to 11th September 2014. This conference continues the series of well-known European IFMBE Conferences held in Budapest in 2011, Antwerp in 2008, Prague in 2005, and two times in Vienna in 2002 and 1999.


The general theme of MBEC 2014 is "Towards new horizons in biomedical engineering". The conference program will consist of plenary/keynote lectures, symposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and poster sessions, and exhibitions. MBEC 2014 will be a great opportunity for an exchange of ideas and presentation of the latest developments in all areas within the field of biomedical engineering. All papers will be peer reviewed; accepted full-length (4 page) papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings that will be published in IFMBE Proceedings Series.

Fysica 2013

FYSICA 2013 will be in Delft on April 19.

All physicist are invited to attend the meeting: teachers, industrial physicists, students and academics.

The subject of this years annual NNV event will be Physics in the Year 2050.

Some of the highlights are:

  • Nobelprize winner 2012 Serge Haroche will give a lecture on individual quantum systems.
  • Focus sessions: Quantum science and applications, Frontiers of imaging, Energy for the future, Information storage and Technology '2050'.
  • EPJ Young Speakers Contest: three young scientists will try to convince the audience by giving a presentation about their research.
  • Lecture by Willem Vos (UT): Looking in and through opaque material.
  • On the FYSICA-market there will be plenty of opportunities to contact interesting companies and institutes.
  • Lecture by Marileen Dogterom (Amolf): Building a living cell with glass and gold.
  • Evening programme (free entrance): De jacht op de Higgs.

EBSA 2013

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing committees, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 9th European Biophysics Congress (EBSA2013). The Conference will be held in Lisbon, Portugal from July 13 to 17, 2013.

1000 participants are expected to present their work and discuss their scientific achievements. We are very much looking forward to hosting this major scientific event. The format of the conference includes plenary lectures, parallel symposia lectures and poster presentations. Adequate time and space for poster viewing and discussion will be provided.

The conference will cover topics such as: Biological Electron and Proton Transfer, Biologically Active Peptides, Biomolecular Simulation: spanning scales, Biophysics in Europe (teaching, career and funding), Cell Biophysics and Signaling, Channels and Transporters, Chemical and Synthetic Biology, Imaging and Biospectroscopy, Intrinsically Disordered Proteins, Material Science in Biophysics, Membrane Structure and Domains, Molecular Basis of Disease, Molecular Motors, Molecular Recognition and Nanobiophysics, Neurosciences, New and Notable, Protein Folding, Assembly and Stability, Protein Structure and Function, Protein-Lipid Interactions, Protein-nucleic Acid Interactions, RNA Structure and Function, Single Molecule Biophysics, Supramolecular Assemblies, Systems Biology.

Details of the meeting, speakers bursaries to students and arrangements are posted on the website. Conference registration is now opened!

We are looking forward to meeting you and your colleagues in Lisbon!

13th June 2012 - Medical Visualization Minisymposium (TU/e)

On 13 June 2012 two PhD defenses will be held at TU Eindhoven on the same day, on medical visualization:

  • Roy van Pelt: Real-time illustrative visualization of cardiovascular hemodynamics
  • Ralph Brecheisen: Visualization of uncertainty in fiber tracking based on diffusion tensor imaging

For that occasion we organize a minisymposium, with outstanding speakers.

Everyone interested is cordially invited to attend the Medical Visualization Minisymposium and both PhD defenses.
