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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
