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: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...

Im Focus: Making the internet more energy efficient through systemic optimization

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.

Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.

Im Focus: New synthesis methods enhance 3D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
