LAST CALL FOR PAPERS: BIOMECHANICS AND ROBOTICS Theme, The 33rd IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Conference (EMBC 2011)

This Conference Theme is introduced this year at the IEEE EMBS Conference and is expected to attract large community of researchers in robotics.

Paper Submission Deadline
April 15, 2011
Notification of Acceptance
June 6, 2011
Author Final Submission
June 18, 2011

The conference will take place at the Boston Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. August 30 through September 3, 2011. The conference main topic is "Integrating technology and medicine for a healthier tomorrow". It will cover diverse topics ranging from biomedical engineering to healthcare technologies to medical and clinical applications. The conference program will consist of invited plenary lectures, symposia, workshops, invited sessions and oral and poster sessions of unsolicited contributions. All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers of up to 4 pages will appear in the Conference Proceedings and be indexed by IEEE Xplore and Medline/PubMed.

As you probably know, the IEEE-EMBS is the world's largest biomedical engineering and professional association dedicated to advancing biomedical technological innovation. The meeting routinely attracts more than 2,000 biomedical scientists, engineers, clinicians, policy makers, and educators from around the world, offering unparalleled professional and educational development opportunities.
