EMBS sponsors multiple, scientific conferences throughout the year. EMBS Conferences provide an opportunity for members and non-members to present and share research information, receive feedback, create networking and employment opportunities and learn about the emerging technologies that will influence future advances in biomedical engineering and healthcare technology.
A major goal of all EMBS conferences is to host a diverse event that ensures opportunity for all to learn/engage with others, present their research in a challenging, but supportive and encouraging environment and network/collaborate with scientific colleagues.
EMBS Conference Manuscript Review Process
EMBS accepts the following types of manuscripts for the conference:
- Contributed Papers (4 pages, either Oral Presentation or Electronic Poster, published)
- Special Session Papers (4 pages, invitation only by proposal process, Oral Presentation, published)
- Late Breaking Research Abstracts (1 Page, Electronic Poster, not published)
EMBS supports and executes a stringent paper review process for all conferences. Each manuscript receives a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 reviews. Plagiarism software is used in the review process and there is an expectation for authors to accept IEEE and EMB Ethic conditions and all ethical requirements as recommended by NIH and funding institutions.
EMBC, the annual conference of the Society is designed as a general topic conference with multiple technical themes. It follows the same stringent paper review process as Special Topic Conferences but has a higher acceptance rate. EMBC has an additional goal of the conference to develop the next generation of Biomedical Engineers and Electrical Engineers working in Bio. We have a vibrant student and young professional (post grad) participation in the General Conference. Average attendance is 3000. Attendees range from high school students to senior industry and academic researchers.
EMB Special Topic Conferences are designed to create a high quality, technological event with leading technology experts. Their paper review is more stringent and has a lower acceptance rate. Average attendance is 800. Attendees range from graduate students to senior industry and academic researchers.
All EMBS Conference Proceedings are published in IEEE Xplore®, a digital library of the IEEE.
Additionally, several Conference Proceedings of EMBS Conferences are indexed in Medline/PUBmed, Elsevier (Compendex, ScienceDirect and Scopus), Google Scholar, INSPEC, CiteSeerX and Web of Science.
