International biomedical engineering experts at BMT 2012 in Jena

18.07.2012
Biosignal processing, patient monitoring and implants – these are the main topics at this year’s Biomedical Engineering Conference (BMT) that will be held from September 16 to September 19 in Jena, Germany.

International experts (e.g. from the USA, Israel, New Zealand, China or Russia) will be presenting recent and future research projects related to all areas of biomedical engineering. The Thuringian Minister of Economic, Work and Technology Affairs, Matthias Machnig, will be speaker of the social event taking place on September 18.

Further keynote speakers will be Prof. Dr. med. Hans-Reiner Figulla, Jena University Hospital, Prof. Dr. Jari Hyttinen, Tampere University of Technology and BioMEdiTech, Finland, Dr. Michael Kempe, Carl Zeiss AG Corporate Research & Technology, Jena, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Roland Sauerbrey , Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR), Helmholtz-Gemeinschaft Deutscher Forschungszentren, Prof. Dr. Phyllis K. Stein, Washington University School of Medicine, USA and Prof. Dr. Zang-Hee Cho, Gachon University of Medicine and Science, Republic of Korea.

Organizers of the BMT 2012 are the German Society for Biomedical Engineering within VDE (VDE|DGBMT), Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Ilmenau University of Technology as well as Fachhochschule Jena which are supported by medways – the branch association for medical technology. The conference, which is held in both German and English, aims at physicians, engineers and scientists and is linked to a trade show.

Moreover, interested people may also attend the VDE MedTech Tutorial on September 18, where experts of VDE will provide information about standardization in the area of medical technology, certification services relating to medical-technical appliances and about management systems for medical practices and hospitals. Further events in the course of the conference are the BMBF session “Mensch-Technik-Interaktion in der Gesundheitsversorgung” (human-technology-interaction in health care matters) and the EU session “Horizon 2020” regarding the future promotion of medical technology within the EU. Both sessions are on September 17, 2012.

On September 16, there is the “Young Forum BMT” which addresses students, graduate students and young professionals. Main aspects of this forum are a visit to the Institute of Photonic Technology in Jena, presentations regarding the topic of biomedical engineering as well as a workshop on presentation skills and the design of poster contributions. A panel discussion gives graduates of biomedical engineering sciences the opportunity to report on their respective career entries in industry and science. Furthermore, young scientists will be decorated with the Klee prize, a prize for patient safety and at the student competition.

For participation at the BMT 2012 at a reduced price please apply until July 22. For the current conference program and further information visit www.bmt2012.de.

Im Focus: OLED microdisplays in data glasses for improved human-machine interaction

The Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP has been developing various applications for OLED microdisplays based on organic semiconductors. By integrating the capabilities of an image sensor directly into the microdisplay, eye movements can be recorded by the smart glasses and utilized for guidance and control functions, as one example. The new design will be debuted at Augmented World Expo Europe (AWE) in Berlin at Booth B25, October 18th – 19th.

“Augmented-reality” and “wearables” have become terms we encounter almost daily. Both can make daily life a little simpler and provide valuable assistance for...

Im Focus: Artificial Intelligence Helps in the Discovery of New Materials

With the help of artificial intelligence, chemists from the University of Basel in Switzerland have computed the characteristics of about two million crystals made up of four chemical elements. The researchers were able to identify 90 previously unknown thermodynamically stable crystals that can be regarded as new materials. They report on their findings in the scientific journal Physical Review Letters.

Im Focus: Complex hardmetal tools out of the 3D printer

For the first time, Fraunhofer IKTS shows additively manufactured hardmetal tools at WorldPM 2016 in Hamburg. Mechanical, chemical as well as a high heat resistance and extreme hardness are required from tools that are used in mechanical and automotive engineering or in plastics and building materials industry. Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Dresden managed the production of complex hardmetal tools via 3D printing in a quality that are in no way inferior to conventionally produced high-performance tools.

Fraunhofer IKTS counts decades of proven expertise in the development of hardmetals. To date, reliable cutting, drilling, pressing and stamping tools made of...

Im Focus: Launch of New Industry Working Group for Process Control in Laser Material Processing

At AKL’16, the International Laser Technology Congress held in May this year, interest in the topic of process control was greater than expected. Appropriately, the event was also used to launch the Industry Working Group for Process Control in Laser Material Processing. The group provides a forum for representatives from industry and research to initiate pre-competitive projects and discuss issues such as standards, potential cost savings and feasibility.

In the age of industry 4.0, laser technology is firmly established within manufacturing. A wide variety of laser techniques – from USP ablation and additive...

Im Focus: New laser joining technologies at ‘K 2016’ trade fair

Every three years, the plastics industry gathers at K, the international trade fair for plastics and rubber in Düsseldorf. The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will also be attending again and presenting many innovative technologies, such as for joining plastics and metals using ultrashort pulse lasers. From October 19 to 26, you can find the Fraunhofer ILT at the joint Fraunhofer booth SC01 in Hall 7.

K is the world’s largest trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry. As in previous years, the organizers are expecting 3,000 exhibitors and more than...
