Call for paper for the workshop “Biomedical Applications of EMF”
2nd international Conference on Advances in Magnetics  (AIM2018), February 4-7 2018


Paolo Ravazzani (Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Institute of Electronics, Computer and Telecommunication Engineering IEIIT CNR, Italy)

Oriano Bottauscio (Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica, Torino, Italy)

Deadline: September 29th, 2017


The IEEE Italy section is planning to organize the 2nd international Conference on Advances in Magnetics  (AIM2018). The Conference will be held in La Thuile, Italy , from February 4 to February 7, 2018. For information about the Conference see

In the framework of this Conference, we were asked to organize a Session devoted to Magnetic Biomedical Applications, contacting people willing to present their studies. For this reason we are contacting you in order to check your potential interest in the event (or the interest of a colleagues of your group) and your availability in submitting one or more contributions.

We think this could be an interesting opportunity for members of EBEA, considering the increasing interest of our community on EMF and medicine.
A list of potential (non exhaustive) session topics is reported below.

The AIM Conference will be an interdisciplinary forum for presentation and discussion of the most recent advances in all fields of Magnetics: theory, numerical modeling, experiments and applications. The event will be open to experts and scientists with different backgrounds (engineers, physicists, mathematicians, material scientists, chemists, biologists, etc) to present, discuss, exchange ideas, methods and results.

Authors (including those ones of our Special Session will be requested to submit preliminary short papers outlining the relevance and the originality of their works and to present their research work at the Conference by oral or poster presentations. All contributors will be invited to submit full papers for possible publication in a IEEE journal, after peer reviewing process.

List of Session Topics (non exhaustive)

Please note that the abstract submission closes on September 15, 2017


2017 Arthur Pilla Young Scientist Award

The annual Arthur Pilla Young Scientist Award was introduced at the BioEM2016 meeting and will again be awarded at BioEM2017, the joint annual meeting of BEMS and EBEA. The award is sponsored by the The Arthur A. Pilla Research Foundation in memory of our friend and colleague.

The Arthur Pilla Young Scientist Award will be awarded to the best presentation by a young scientist at the BioEM Meeting. Any presentations (Platform & Poster) at the BioEM meeting by “young scientists” may be entered for this award. The “young scientist” must be the first author on the research and must present the talk or poster. To be qualified as a “young scientist” for the Arthur Pilla Young Scientist Award, the candidate must have received a PhD no more than 5 years prior to the opening date of the BioEM meeting.

So, if you’re a qualified “young scientist” and wish to be considered for this award, please send a copy of your PhD certificate to by 19 May 2017. Also indicate the title of the presentation you wish to enter for this award. Only one presentation may be entered per individual.

The prize consists of a certificate and an award of US$1200, so get your entry in soon. Note that winner of the EBEA Chiabrera award will not be allowed to enter for this award.
