Important Announcement

We like to inform you that it has become necessary for the Conference Organising Committee to re-schedule the joint Asia Pacific Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering 2017 and the Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference 2017.

Originally scheduled to run from 17 -19 July 2017, it is now intended to run the joint conference in late 2017, but still in Sydney, at a venue to be announced in the next couple of weeks.

The organisers sincerely apologise for this re-scheduling, but firmly believe this will enable us to deliver a conference of the high calibre and interaction expected by registrants travelling from all the different parts of the globe.

This website for the joint conference will be updated as more details come to hand.

We will be contacting all who have submitted papers and encouraging them to participate in the event on the new dates.  Similarly we will be in contact with confirmed and potential sponsors of the joint conferences to assure them of our commitment to delivery of a high quality event and an interested audience.

We promise to deliver an exciting three days of professional development and information sharing to the global biomedical engineering community and look forward welcoming everybody to Sydney and its warm weather of early summer in December this year.

APCMBE is the tri-annual Asia Pacific focused conference of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering, and ABEC is the major conference for the College of Biomedical Engineers within Engineers Australia (EA). EA is the national professional body for the advancement of engineering and the professional development of our members.

Biomedical Engineering is an integral part of modern health care. Biomedical Engineering teams bring their skills to a broad range of fields ranging from Clinical Engineering managing all aspects of the health technology lifecycle; Rehabilitation Engineering taking lead roles as front line clinicians in assessment, design and manufacture of assistive technology for people with disabilities; engineers and technicians in industry developing and manufacturing medical devices; and leading or supporting standards development, review and implementation across the health care sector; through to researchers working closely with other clinicians or industry partners to develop new technologies and procedures.

Engineers Australia, College of Biomedical Engineering recognises the diverse nature of the work of biomedical engineers and is looking to celebrate this during these joint conferences in 2017.  The College will bring together all branches of biomedical engineering into one conference venue to focus on the role engineering has to play in improving health care outcomes.

We expect to attract some exciting speakers from both home and abroad and have social events perfect for networking and building contacts and friendships. This opportunity provides you with a unique platform from which to reach a high profile, highly targeted audience of leading professionals.

In conjunction with the learning experience of international and national experts in the field, and significant networking opportunities of the conference, we anticipate a large industry exhibition in support of on-going innovations and improvements in biomedical engineering.

We look forward to meeting you in Sydney.
