We are also proud to announce that we will be collecting full paper manuscripts (due date March 15th, 2009) for consideration to be published in the American Journal of Biomedical Science (AJBMS) as a special issue on Biomedical Engineering. For further details visit http://www.bme.fiu.edu/SBEC2009/AJBMS.htm

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, clinicians, students, and industry leaders to discuss current ideas and concepts in biomedical research. The 2009 Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference will be held May 15-17, 2009 in Miami, Florida. The program will include keynote lectures, presentations in diverse areas of biotechnology, and student competitions. Registration forms and information for participants are already available in the registration section of our website at http://www.bme.fiu.edu/SBEC2009

The conference venue will be the Embassy Suites Hotel - Miami International Airport. We will soon provide links for reservations and conference codes in the "hotel information" section of the SBEC 2009 website.

Even though this is primarily a regional conference, attendance from all regions of the US, Latin America, and around the world is strongly encouraged and welcomed. An important incentive of the Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference is that it is not as large as many of the international meetings, so that interactions between students and prominent biomedical engineers from many diverse fields are facilitated. These interactions are key to the field's continued development and advancement, and they provide an excellent platform for networking and exchanging ideas.

The deadline for submission of short abstracts will be January 15th, 2009. Instructions for abstract formatting are available at http://www.bme.fiu.edu/SBEC2009/index.htm Please make sure to follow the formatting instructions posted as a Word file. The abstract need not be an exact number of words, but it must follow the requirements for number of lines in order to meet printing specifications.

We also extend an invitation to exhibitors and sponsors to participate in SBEC 2009 and take advantage of the chance to interact with presenters and attendees. For information on exhibiting your products at SBEC 2009, please refer to the exhibitors section of our website at http://www.bme.fiu.edu/SBEC2009/exhibitors.htm

If you know any colleagues who could be interested in this conference, please feel free to pass on this information.

We look forward to your participation in this very exciting meeting!
