About ICBME Conference Series
The ICBME is a series of international conference in biomedical engineering held in Singapore. Our past conferences have been successful in attracting over 700 participants from more than 30 countries. The next conference will be hosted from 7–10 December 2016 in Singapore.
Biomedical engineering is applied in most aspects of our healthcare ecosystem. From electronic health records to diagnostic tools to therapeutic, rehabilitative and regenerative treatments, the work of biomedical engineers is evident. Biomedical engineers work at the intersection of engineering, life sciences and healthcare. The engineers would use principles from applied science including mechanical, electrical, chemical and computer engineering together with physical sciences including physics, chemistry and mathematics to apply them to biology and medicine. Applying such concepts to the human body is very much the same concepts that go into building and programming a machine. The goal is to better understand, replace or fix a target system to ultimately improve the quality of healthcare.
With this understanding, we have created the International Conference in Biomedical Engineering to offer a single platform for individuals and organisations working in the biomedical engineering related field to gather and network with each other in so doing create the catalyst for future development of biomedical engineering in Asia.
Recap of the 15th ICBME conference
The last conference concluded with much in-depth discussions and extensive knowledge-sharing. Some keynotes and plenary speakers include:
