International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices (BIODEVICES 2013)

Conference name: International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices (BIODEVICES 2013)

11 February 2013 - 14 February 2013

The International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices (BIODEVICES 2013) will be held in Barcelona, Spain from the 11 to 14 February 2013.

Biomedical devices represent a wide variety of implements that are beneficial for human health and welfare. There are numerous biomedical devices that are in current use, all aimed at improving human health and welfare. Some examples are contact lenses, hip implants, pace makers, artificial heart valves, stents, catheters, and breast implants, to name just a few. Surgical instruments are also biomedical devices. With the development of minimally invasive surgery, trauma to the patient and health care costs have been minimized while speeding up the time period required for recovery. Other devices, such as blood glucose monitors or apnea monitors, help to improve the quality of life of individuals.

The purpose of the International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices is to bring together researchers and practitioners from electronics and mechanical engineering, interested in studying and using models, equipments and materials inspired from biological systems and/or addressing biological requirements.

Monitoring devices, instrumentation sensors and systems, biorobotics, micro-nanotechnologies and biomaterials are some of the technologies addressed at this conference.

BIODEVICES encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques, advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or general survey papers, reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers.
Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for further information on how to propose a special session.
