Welcome

Hello, and welcome to the website for 10th Asia Pacific Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering (APCMBE) to be held in conjunction with the Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference (ABEC) in Sydney, Australia.

On behalf of the organising committee for both conferences, we are delighted to invite you to participate in APCMBE and ABEC 2017.  The aim of this joint conference is to bring the biomedical engineers, researchers, students, and communities around the world together in order to share their latest research works and innovative developments in biomedical engineering.

The conference will be held in the heart of downtown Sydney at the Sheraton on the Park Hotel, located across the road from Hyde Park from 17th to 19th July 2017.

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. Starting with a welcome function on Sunday afternoon, the exhibition will take place over full three days of the conference.
