The 2018 joint meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA) will be held from June 25 to June 29 in Portorož, Slovenia. Abstract submission will close on February 28, 2018. For more information, check out the meeting website at http://www.bioem2018.org/
Dear EBEA members,
We open the call for the fourth edition (year 2018) of the Alessandro Chiabrera Award for Excellence in Bioelectromagnetics. This prize has the main purpose to keep alive Prof. Chiabrera’s memory and scientific legacy, as well as to foster excellence in the Bioelectromagnetics community, by giving recognition to outstanding scientific contributions from early stage researchers. In particular, the following topics are recommended:
- Interaction mechanisms
- Innovative technologies
- Biomedical applications
- Theoretical modeling
- In vitro studies
- In vivo studies
- Human studies
Nominations are invited for early stage researchers (under the age of 35 on January 1st of the year of nomination). The Award consists of € 1200, which will be funded by EBEA directly and through private and company participation. The Award will be officially presented at the BioEM2018 Conference (Portoroz, Slovenia), and the conference fee for the recipient will be waived.
Candidates must be nominated by an EBEA member who needs to provide:
• A curriculum vitae of the candidate with full list of publications;
• A letter of motivation describing particular innovative contributions by the candidate in the topics listed above.
A committee composed of the EBEA President and four other prominent scientists will be in charge of the selection.
The committee will assign the Award on the basis of:
• Pertinence of the topics;
• Relevance, innovation and quality of the presented papers;
• Scientific standing of the candidate on the basis of the presented CV (e.g. demonstration of independent research capabilities, fellowships, awards, etc).
The EBEA Council will give final approval before the award commitment.
Nominations must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before February 15th, 2018.
For more details about the award, please write to email@example.com
Former recipients of the Alessandro Chiabrera Award are Maxim Zhabodov (2015, France), Sarah Loughran (2016, Australia) and Aude Silve (2017, France).
EBEA is proud and honoured to announce that Aude Silve (Institute for Pulsed Power and Microwave Technology, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), is the winner of the 2017 edition of the Alessandro Chiabrera award.
This prize has the main purpose to foster excellence in the Bioelectromagnetics community by giving recognition to outstanding scientific contributions from early stage researchers, and to keep alive Prof. Chiabrera’s memory and scientific legacy.
The nominations were evaluated and selected by a committee composed by the EBEA President and by four other prominent scientists, the EBEA Council gave the final approval.
Aude will give a lecture titled: “Effect of pulsed electric fields on biological cells: adding some pieces to the large puzzle” during the joint annual meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society and the European Bioelectromagnetics Association, BioEM2017: June 7, 2017 • 12:00 – 13:00, Hangzhou, China.
