Two Announcement related to BMES 2015 which will be in Tampa from Oct 7-10. Last year we have two groups that traveled to BMES and it was a great experience for them. I highly encourage you to submit and also consider the design competition. Any BME faculty can help you with the abstract or other requirements for the two items:
1) BMES 2015 Conference
In order for you to attend the BMES conference you have to submit a one-page abstract format will be required this year. This format will allow reviewers to more effectively choose those abstracts which are best suited for podium presentations.
The abstract should include:
- description of the materials and methods used
- study results (including up to one figure)
- discussion of how this work fits into the context of greater societal needs.
Please review the abstract template on the submission site: http://bmes.org/abstract
During the submission process, please select the most appropriate track & subtrack from the list provided in the online system, or choose the track and “other” if no named sessions seem appropriate. You may request to present your work in a platform or in a poster session. The technical program committee will attempt to honor your preference, but may not always be able to do so. Presentations may be scheduled on any of the three days of the meeting. All accepted presenters must register for the full meeting.
The submission deadline is April 23, 2015. A The nominal abstract processing fee of $35 is a submission fee and does not apply towards the required meeting registration.
2) BMES Design Competition:
The Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) will hold its first ever Student Design Competition this year. All BMES undergraduate student members engaged in student design projects are encouraged to apply and enter the competition which is being sponsored by Medtronic.
The application deadline is May 25, 2015. The 2015 Design Theme is Bioinstrumentation!!
All design team members MUST be BMES Student Members and BMES student chapter members in good standing. Top 6 proposals will be chosen and those teams will present, via oral presentations, at BMES 2015 Annual Meeting in Tampa (Oct 7-10, specific day to be determined). At the meeting, the top 6 teams will be narrowed down to the top 3 winners. Winners will receive monetary awards. This is a great opportunity to showcase projects and to network with product development and design professionals in BME.
