Important Announcement

It is with sincere apologises and deep regret to inform you that it has become necessary for the Conference Organising Committee to cancel the joint Asia Pacific Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering 2017 and the Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference 2017.

The organisers sincerely apologise for this cancellation, but firmly believe this will enable us to deliver a conference of the high calibre and interaction expected by registrants in the not too distance future.

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

APCMBE is the tri-annual Asia Pacific focused conference of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering, and will be held in conjunction with the  2nd International Conference for Innovation in Biomedical Engineering and Life Sciences (ICIBEL2017), 10-13 December 2017, Penang Malaysia, organized by the Centre for Innovation in Medical Engineering (CIME), University of Malaya and co-organized by the Malaysian Society of Medical and Biological Engineering (MSMBE).

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. 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.

Once again we thank you for interest in the conference and look forward to connecting with you again the very near future.

Kind regards
