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)

•             MR Engineering (RF coils, Gradient coils, pTx, etc.)
•             Patient’s safety
•             Quantitative Imaging (Fingerprinting, EPT, …)

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

 

BioEM 2017 in Hangzhou, China – Call for Abstracts

bioem2017_logoBioEM2017, the premier international conference on bioelectromagnetics and the annual joint meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), will be held June 5-9 at the West Lake Villa, Hangzhou, China.

We invite abstracts for platform presentations (20 minutes) and poster sessions. Original papers are solicited for presentation (in English) on the interaction of biological systems with electromagnetic energy from static fields through terahertz radiation. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following categories:

  • in vitro studies
  • in vivo studies
  • epidemiology
  • provocation studies
  • mechanisms of interaction
  • clinical devices and medical applications
  • theoretical and practical modelling
  • instrumentation and methodology
  • dosimetry
  • exposure standards
  • occupational exposure
  • public policy
  • risk assessment

Authors wishing to present papers should submit a short summary and an abstract electronically. Instructions for Authors and the abstract submissions portal can be found at https://www.bioem.org/home. We encourage you to read through the instructions carefully before making your submission at http://www.bioem.org/SubmitAbstract
All abstracts will be reviewed and scored by the Technical Program Review Committee. Authors’ preferences for a platform or poster presentation will be followed whenever possible, however it is not always possible when submitted abstracts are assembled into a balanced set of sessions for the final program.

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). BioEM2017 will also offer travel support to a number of students. For details and to apply, see http://www.bioem2017.org.
Details of registration options and rates can be found at http://www.bioem2017.org/list-38-1.html. When registering as a member, please ensure that your BEMS and/or EBEA membership is up to date at the time of the conference, as those who do not have current membership will be required to pay the additional registration fee on site.
