*NEW* An important announcement

Published: 18 September 2020

The situation regarding the Covid-19 pandemic is far from resolved and nobody can predict with any certainty how the situation will look like in two months’ time. One thing is certain though, it will not be completely “normal”, neither locally nor globally. For this reason, we still do not know for sure how EMBEC 2020 will look like, but we would like to assure you that we are working on it and trying to make it happen in one form or another. This is also the reason for several postponement of various deadlines and important dates so far and probably for more adjustments in the very near future.

Right now the most viable option appears to be a hybrid EMBEC 2020 conference, a combination of an on-site and an “on-line” event. We hope we will be able to announce it soon (in the beginning of October 2020). Rest assured that the deadlines for Early Registration and Hotel reservation at guarantied reduced prices already does or will accommodate this late announcement so you will have some time to decide and take the opportunity to use both.

The Proceedings of EMBEC 2020 containing the accepted full length papers submitted for presentation at EMBEC 2020 will be published by Springer within the IFMBE Proceedings Series regardless of the actual realization of the conference.

Should you require further information you can contact directly:

Stay tuned in for further information. We are looking forward to meeting you in Portorož in November, either in person or on-line. Take care and stay well and healthy!

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!
