Unprecedented second one-week extension EMBC 2022

The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMB) is mindful of the challenges many of our authors face today. We also are acutely aware that while the research community is dedicated to its work, paper submission deadlines may not be at the forefront of everyone’s minds during this particular moment during an ever evolving global pandemic. With this in mind, EMBS has made the decision to extend the deadline for 4 -page papers for an unprecedented second one-week extension to January 31.

We are aiming to provide maximum flexibility as we continue to balance deadlines including the time required for the peer review process which is tantamount to Conference Proceedings being indexed in PubMed, the requirements of authors to receive notifications in order to make arrangements to attend the conference, and the cascading effect extensions have on submission deadlines for 1 -page abstracts not to mention on the planning of high quality, in-person conferences of this magnitude.

Please know that the January 31 deadline is for authors urgently in need of an extension and it is our expectation that the majority of papers should be submitted as close to the January 24 deadline as possible.

We also would want to share our current plan below as we know there is still uncertainty with the ongoing pandemic.  

  • Conference dates: July 11 -15, 2022
  • Conference location: Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow, Scotland UK
  • If you are an Author of an accepted paper, you will be required to present your paper in person.  The conference is not able to entertain a hybrid option, a remote presentation and/or the submission of a video presentation.
  • Authors who are unable to travel due to country and/or institution restrictions may withdraw their submission, with no penalty, by April 30, 2022.

The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society is pleased to announce that the 44th International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Conference will be held in Glasgow, United Kingdom from 11-15 July 2022. This conference is themed, “Biomedical Engineering transforming the provision of healthcare: promoting wellness through personalized & predictable provision at the point of care”. The scientific tracks will cover the standard topics of the EMBS technical committees with an additional topic, consistent with the conference theme. Alongside the scientific sessions, there will be an exhibition comprising biomedical engineering companies, publishers, SMEs, start-ups, funded biomedical research, and Biomedical Engineering programs, Institutes, and Universities. The conference will provide networking opportunities for engineers, clinicians, scientists, and entrepreneurs, as well as for students and young professionals. The conference program consists of mini-symposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and e-poster sessions, sessions for students and young professionals, and sessions for clinicians and entrepreneurs. Glasgow and Scotland, within which it sits, have been the center of innovation for scientific, medical and technical research for centuries – for example, John Macintyre established the world’s first hospital radiology department at Glasgow Royal Infirmary in 1896, and obstetric ultrasound was launched at the Queen Mother’s Hospital, Glasgow in the late 1950s. Many more technical and medical innovations are linked to Scotland and the wider UK – the seat of many scientific discoveries over many centuries.
