Call for the Chiabrera Award Edition 2018

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 president@ebea.org before February 15th, 2018.

For more details about the award, please write to treasurer@ebea.org

 

Former recipients of the Alessandro Chiabrera Award are Maxim Zhabodov (2015, France), Sarah Loughran (2016, Australia) and Aude Silve (2017, France).

Best Regards,

Micaela Liberti
EBEA Secretary

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

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

Chairs:

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 http://www.aim2018.it.

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)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging
•             MR Engineering (RF coils, Gradient coils, pTx, etc.)
•             Patient’s safety
•             Quantitative Imaging (Fingerprinting, EPT, …)
•             Modelling techniques
•             Magnetic media for enhanced imaging
Magnetic hyperthermia and ablation
•             Design of applicators
•             Magnetic nanoparticles
•             Advanced bioheat equation
•             EMF Exposure assessment
Electromagnetic Brain stimulation
•             Deep Brain Stimulation
•             Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
•             EMF dosimetry in neuro-stimulation
•             EMF Exposure assessment
Electroporation
Wearable sensors for patient’s monitoring
•             Design and study of new magnetic sensors
•             Sensor characterization
•             Data analysis
Tissue properties characterization and anatomical models for computational bioelectromagnetics

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