Welcome Note

Come, Share, Enjoy!

Dear Colleagues!

It is a pleasure to invite you to contribute to the development of the scientific and professional programme of EMBEC 2020, the 8th European Medical and Biological Engineering Conference organized by the Slovenian Society for Medical and Biological Engineering. The conference of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) and European Medical and Biological Engineering Conference (EMBEC) will be held in the Congress Centre Bernardin in Portorož, Slovenia, from 14 to 18 June, 2020 from 11 November to 3 December 2020.

We aim to present all traditional BME areas, but also to highlight new and emerging fields, such as Artificial Intelligence in Health Care, Tissue Engineering, Bioinformatics, Neurotechnology, Electroporation-based Treatments, and Technologies for Medicine and Biology, to name a few. Moreover, we will emphasize the role of education, translational research, and commercialization of new ideas.

Our aim is to make EMBEC 2020 a platform for engineers, physicists, biologists, and medical professionals to enhance our collective knowledge and scientific achievements by bridging complementary disciplines and new findings into an interactive and attractive forum.


Welcome to Slovenia in 2020!
