BioEM2009, the Joint Meeting of The Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), will be held at the Congress Centre in Davos, Switzerland from June 14-19, 2009. As the premier international conference in the area of bioelectromagnetics, BioEM2009 is designed to stimulate further research in this field through the exchange of ideas and lively debate on state-of-the-art knowledge as well as gaps to be filled. It is co-sponsored by BEMS and EBEA, demonstrating an exemplary collaboration between the two leading societies on bioelectromagnetics to provide a solid foundation for the continued development of the field. In conjunction with BioEM2009, several workshops and invited forums will be organized by other relevant organizations including COST, NRP and US Brooks Air Force.
With the pervasive presence of electromagnetic fields (EMF) in our everyday lives, the meeting aims at presenting and advancing high quality research in basic and applied aspects of bioelectromagnetics to address the health concerns, regulations and medical applications associated with EMF. The program of the meeting will provide a comprehensive overview of the field of bioelectromagnetics - from fundamental research topics on the interactions between living tissue and EM energy to medical applications. BioEM2009 will feature invited plenary talks by world-renowned scientists, a variety of special sessions and panel discussions aligned with the most pressing issues in the field of bioelectromagnetics as well as informative technical sessions, poster sessions, and social functions. Student competitions will also be a highlight of the conference. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in an oral or poster session while developing their technical communication skills and networking with the bioelectromagnetics community.
To complement the stimulating and interesting program, the spectacular alpine meeting venue of Davos, Switzerland offers the ideal location for participants and their families to enjoy themselves beyond the meeting professional events. Situated at 1560 m or 5100 feet above sea level in a picturesque valley at the heart of the Alps, Davos is easily accessible by train and car.
