  • Call for papers and exhibitors: 25th Southern BiomedicalEngineering Conference - Abstract deadline January 15, 2009

    Announcing the 25th Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference - Join us in Miami, FL, in May 2009!

    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.

    Even though this is primarily a regional conference, attendance from all regions of US and Latin America 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

    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

    Additional updated information on the conference can be accessed at the official website:

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

    About Miami:

    Described as the "only great city of the world that started as a fantasy," Miami, with its subtropical climate, naturally protected harbor, and spectacular beaches, has traditionally been a haven for tourism. Since the late 1980s, however, the city has sustained unprecedented growth and, while transforming its image, has emerged as a center of international finance and commerce and as a regional center for Latin American and Haitian art. An unincorporated village shortly before the turn of the twentieth century, Miami boasts a metropolitan area that includes a large unincorporated area and 30 incorporated areas or municipalities, all of which make up Miami-Dade County. Greater Miami offers a diversity of lifestyles and attractions to both residents and visitors in a variety of small towns and cities such as Coconut Grove, Miami Beach, South Beach, Coral Gables, and Bal Harbor. With easy access to other parts of the country, Miami has developed into one of America's major transportation hubs, and today it is a year-round city that offers something for everyone.
