SMTA, INEMI, and MEPTEC have joined forces to again host this international conference, focusing on advances in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing, specifically targeting medical and bioscience applications. Last year’s conference attracted about 200 attendees and more than 30 exhibitors. Typical applications within this space involve implantable defibrillators, neurostimulators and drug delivery, interventional catheters, pillcams, ultrasound transducers, hearing aids, biosensors, microfluidics, wireless communications, as well as future diagnostic and treatment solutions that may use stretchable electronics, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) or nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).
You are invited to submit an abstract for the 2016 Medical Electronics Symposium to be held at Marylhurst University near Portland, Oregon September 14 and 15, 2016. The Symposium will be chaired by Chuck Richardson of the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI). Presenters are invited to speak on such topics as implantable devices, diagnostic equipment, personal monitoring, and drug delivery, as well as biosensors, microfluidics, wireless communications and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The Symposium will cover design, miniaturization, materials, manufacturability, test, reliability, and regulatory compliance for Class II and III medical electronics. Other relevant topics include emerging technologies such as stretchable electronics, wireless body area networks, biosensors in novel applications and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).
Deadline for submission is April 18, 2016.
