Welcome to the 2016 Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference.
On behalf of the organising committee of the Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference (ABEC), we are delighted to invite you to participate in ABEC 2016, “Healthcare Industry Transformation”.
The conference will be occurring from Sunday 30 October to Wednesday 02 November 2016 at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.
The Australian Biomedical Engineering Conference (ABEC) is the major conference for the College of Biomedical Engineers within Engineers Australia (EA). EA is the national forum for the advancement of engineering and the professional development of our members. With more than 85,000 members embracing all disciplines of the engineering team, EA is the largest and most diverse professional body for engineers in Australia.
The College of Biomedical Engineers is for members of EA who work closely with medical practitioners, health-industry professional, and vehicle and safety equipment manufacturers to enhance human life.
Biomedical Engineering is an integral part of modern health care. Biomedical Engineering teams bring their skills to a broad range of fields ranging from Clinical Engineers managing all aspects of the health technology lifecycle; Rehabilitation Engineers taking lead roles as front line clinicians in assessment, design and manufacture of assistive technology for people with disabilities; engineers in industry developing and manufacturing medical devices; engineers leading or supporting standards development, review and implementation across the health care sector; through to researchers working closely with other clinicians or industry partners to develop new technologies and procedures.
Engineers Australia’s, College of Biomedical Engineers recognises the diverse nature of the work of Biomedical Engineers and is looking to celebrate this through ABEC 2016. ABEC 2016 will bring together all branches of Biomedical Engineering into one conference to focus on the role engineering has to play in improving health care outcomes.
We expect to attract some exciting speakers from both home and aboard and have social events perfect for networking and building contacts and friendships. The attendance has been increasing rapidly at the past few conferences and we have found from previous feedback that this opportunity has proved to be very rewarding for exhibitors and sponsors. This opportunity provides you with a unique platform from which to reach a high profile, highly targeted audience of leading professionals.
In conjunction with the learning experience of international and national experts in the field, and significant networking opportunities of the conference, we anticipate a large industry exhibition in support of on-going innovations and improvements in Biomedical Engineering. The exhibition will take place over full three days of the conference.
We look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane.
