The 29th Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency in vibrant Miami, Florida.

This meeting, which has been held annually since 1982, has steadily grown and typically has over 200 registrants. The conference was started to bring together engineers and scientists in the South with interest in biomedical applications and showcase development in the emerging field of biomedical engineering. It has grown into not only a regional conference, but an international conference with participants from every part of the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, and Asia. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, clinicians, students, and industry leaders to discuss current ideas and concepts in biomedical research. The conference cover advances and innovations in Biomedical Engineering and related science, technology and education. Translation of biomedical technology to the clinic, mobile medicine, and innovative application of computational approaches and photonic, micro, nano, and wireless devices for investigating, real-time interfacing and targeted control of physiological function are of special interest. The program agenda includes keynote lectures, presentations in diverse areas of biomedical engineering, and student competitions.

The conference not only provides a venue for presentation and discussion by senior-scientists but also actively offers a forum for promoting and supporting young scientists from around the world. The participation of a high percentage of young scientists (postdoctoral fellows and graduate students) distinguishes the conference from most others and the organizing committee is committed to this tradition.

The 29th Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference is being hosted and organized by the department of Biomedical Engineering from the College of Engineering & Computing at Florida International University.
