In the News: Life Sciences Conferences

Throughout spring and into early fall, there are a number of conferences taking place that offer value to the life sciences community.

ISBI 2016

Recently, the International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) took place 13-16 April in Prague, Czech Republic (above). Look for information on next year’s conference happening in Melbourne, Australia here. You can also find more on biomedical imaging in life sciences in the March 2015 Life Sciences Newsletter.

Upcoming IEEE Life Sciences related conferences include the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS2016), 22-25 May, in Montreal, Canada. More on the conference can be found here in this issue of the Life Sciences Newsletter. From 20-23 June, the 29th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2016) will be held in Dublin, Ireland, and Belfast, Northern Ireland. As part of a two-part series that was started at the IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics in February, Carolyn McGregor, Chair of the Life Sciences Technical Community (LSTC), will hold a panel to continue discussion of health monitoring in extreme environments at CBMS 2016. More information on this conference can be found on the CBMS 2016 website.

Looking ahead, the 38th annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC’16) will take place 16-20 August, in Orlando, Florida. At EMBC’16, LSTC will host a mini-symposium to discuss “Cyber-Security, IoT, Wearables and the Quantified Self” with representatives from multiple societies. Conference details are available at the EMBC’16 website. Also, save the date for the IEEE International Conference on Consumer Electronics, 4-7 September, in Berlin, Germany where LSTC plans to provide a life sciences demo. Details on conference registration are available here.
