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 awards@bems.org 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.

BEMS Awards Chair

It is time to decide the location of BioEM2019!

Dear Member,

BioEM Conferences are the joint meetings of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European Bioelectromagnetics Association (EBEA), held every year in the 2nd or 3rd week of June.

These meetings aim to present and advance high quality research in basic and applied aspects of bioelectromagnetics in order to address health concerns, regulations and medical applications associated with EMF. A number of leading figures from the international research and medical communities are invited to the meeting to provide analyses of the results and issues emerging from research and practice.

BEMS and EBEA are currently calling for bids to host BioEM2019.

Any member of either of the two Societies is eligible to propose a location, host the meeting and be the Chair of the local organising committee.

Proposals from anywhere in the world will be considered and evaluated by a joint committee from the Board and the Council of the two Societies.

If you are interested, please reply to secretary@bems.org and/or secretary@ebea.org before June 15, 2017 to receive more information, including detailed proposal requirements. Applicants will be expected to submit a formal costed proposal by Septemebr 30, 2017.
