At the moment, BHI’17 is accepting proposals for the following sessions:

Workshops/Tutorials

Workshops will be focused on current and future trends in life sciences, biomedical engineering, and technology development in health care. A workshop may be delivered by a group of leading researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to registrant. A website will be made available to Workshop registrant to download any material provided by the Workshop organizer(s). Workshop organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Workshop.  Please note that NO PAPERS will be submitted to this session.

Tutorials will provide reviews of a specific area related to biomedical engineering, biosciences or medicine with a perspective of technology development in health care, and may also involve registrants through a hands-on experience or demonstrations. A tutorial may be delivered by individuals or a group of leading educators, researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half day or full-day format with a nominal fee charged to each registrant. A website will be made available to Tutorial registrants to download any material provided by the Tutorial organizer(s). The tutorial organizer(s) may provide any additional material such as handouts to participants during the Tutorial.  Please note that NO PAPERS will be submitted to this session.

 

Invited/Special Sessions

Invited/Special sessions from leading experts and researchers on the recent advances will be focused on specific topics under a conference Theme in biological and biomedical engineering, life sciences, health care, clinical applications, and biomedical education. All submissions in invited/special sessions will be required to follow the 1-page paper format. Invited/Special sessions will be scheduled under a Conference Theme and Track with 90 minute time slots during the conference, as is the case for regular contributed papers that have been selected for oral presentation. A typical invited session would consist of 6 talks.

In general, there will be no funding available from the conference budget to cover travel expenses for speakers that are invited to participate in the conference. Thus, we encourage you to seek funding for such expenses, if needed, from either federal agencies or private sponsors.
