Dear EMBS friends and colleagues,
Welcome to EMBC 2023 and to Sydney, Australia! EMBC 2023 is the 45th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. We are honoured and thrilled to host our EMBS community ‘down under’ from 24th to 27th July 2023.
The biomedical engineering community of Australia and New Zealand has a long history of outstanding scientific and technological contributions and is supported by a vibrant medtech industry. In reflection of how the global pandemic highlighted fragilities in global healthcare systems and responses worldwide, the theme of the conference is “Engineering Better and More Resilient Healthcare for All.”
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 workshops, mini-symposia, special sessions, oral and poster sessions, sessions for students and young professionals, and sessions for clinicians and entrepreneurs.
Sydney is an iconic city that offers beautiful cityscapes framed by a world-famous harbour. Our conference will take place at the spectacular International Conference Centre, in vibrant Darling Harbour. To complement our special environment, EMBC will be a sustainable conference.
We are ready to say g’day and welcome you to Sydney in July 2023 to enjoy great science and technologies, a spectacular social program, and an unforgettable experience of a lifetime. Let’s do this, in leaps and bounds!
Nigel Lovell and Sally McArthur (Conference Chairs)
