Call for Abstracts BioEM2020

The European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA) and the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and are glad to announce that BioEM 2020, the premier international conference on bioelectromagnetics and the annual joint meeting will be held in Oxford, UK on June 21-26.

The meeting aims to presenting and advancing high quality research in bioelectromagnetics to address the mechanisms, effects, regulations and medical applications.

We invite abstracts for platform presentations and poster sessions. Original papers are solicited for presentation (in English) on the interaction of biological systems with electromagnetic energy from static fields to Terahertz frequencies.

Preferential topics include, but are not limited to, the following categories:

  • Biological and medical applications
  • In vitro and in vivo studies
  • Human studies
  • Mechanisms of interaction
  • Electromagnetic dosimetry and modelling
  • Human body modelling and characterization
  • Electroporation and pulsed electric field applications
  • Occupational exposure and risk assessment
  • Standards and public health policy
  • Epidemiology

Authors wishing to present papers are invited to submit a short summary and an abstract online.

Abstract submission instructions (https://www.bioem.org/submitinstructions) and the online abstract submissions portal can be found at: https://www.bioem.org/home. The submission system is now open.

As always, we particularly invite platform and poster submissions from students. There will be a competition (with prizes) for the best student papers (both oral and poster). BioEM2020 will offer travel support to a number of students. For details and to apply please visit https://www.bioem2020.org.

All abstracts will be reviewed and scored by the Technical Program Committee. While we will try to respect authors’ preferences for a platform or poster presentation, this is not always possible when we assemble submitted abstracts into a balanced set of sessions for the final program.

Important Dates:

16 December 2019: Registration and abstract submission opens on-line
31 January 2020: Abstract submission deadline
31 January 2020: Student travel support application deadline
15 March 2020: Author notification
25 April 2020: Early registration deadline

Special Issue “Human Exposure in 5G and 6G Scenarios”

The upcoming development of the 5th generation mobile networks (5G) based on wireless communications will involve for the first time a wide use of the millimeter-wave spectrum (30–300 GHz). The need for new network performances, such as low transmission latency and an increase in data rates, will also involve the introduction of technological innovations, such as ‘massive’ MIMO antennas and beamforming. Furthermore, small cells will be integrated into 5G networks. All these novel usages will lead to a new world of connectivity, which will develop the concept of future smart cities, factories, and roads and will improve the user benefits, providing ubiquitous wireless access to the cloud. These heterogeneous networks will also drastically modify user exposure.

In this Special Issue of Applied Sciences Journal, we invite submissions dealing with the human exposure assessment in the upcoming 5G exposure scenario and beyond 5G technologies (e.g., in the THz band). Research papers or reviews can focus on (but are not limited to) measurements and/or simulation methodologies for 5G and beyond 5G technologies, deterministic and statistical approaches, in situ exposure assessment, concepts for minimizing exposure, network optimizations, etc. Further details and the manuscript submission information are available at
