iBEM Award for best picture

IPP Biomedical Engineering Meeting 2016

Dear friends, colleagues and students,

It is a great honour and privilege to invite you all to attend the first IPP Biomedical Engineering Meeting (iBEM), to be held in Almeida Garret Library in the beautiful gardens of Palácio de Cristal (Cristal Palace), Oporto in March 21st, 2016. iBEM intends to be a great opportunity to share an exciting experience in several emerging fields of biomedical engineering.

After trying to stablish this first edition in 2014 hereby we present a meeting with two symposia covering topics from Systems Biology and Omics as well as Nanomedicine and Theranostics. In that sense we are happy to invite not only students and professionals with a biomedical engineering background, but also students and professionals from other fields of engineering, medicine and basic science (biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics, informatics) among others that gravitate around biomedicine and technology.

In this meeting we will also celebrate the starting of Spring Season. The Cristal Palace Gardens are considered Oporto's most beautiful gardens overlooking the Douro River. This beautifully landscaped park has an unique romantic environment, and is dominated by a lake, flowerbeds, and roaming peacocks, all overlooking the Douro River, of which there are superb views. Oporto is one of the oldest European cities, and UNESCO proclaimed its historical centre a World Heritage Site in 1996. Oporto is rich in gastronomy, flavours and Oporto wines and for that reason iBEM is expected to have a memorable cultural and social programme.

The iBEM scientific meeting will be an exciting, special and memorable event. We will have plenary sessions, symposia, poster sessions addressing the cutting edge of biomedical technologies and some of its emerging fields. With a high scientific level of the program and nice networking opportunities we intend to offer you an exceptional meeting!

On behalf of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, ESEIG-IPP, we look forward to welcoming you to iBEM.
