BioEM2018 - Call for Abstracts

Published on: Jan 01, 2018

BioEM2018, the premier international conference on bioelectromagnetics and the annual joint meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA) will be held June 24-29 in Portorož, Slovenia.

We invite abstracts for platform presentations and poster sessions. Original papers are solicited for presentation (in English) on the interaction of biological systems with electromagnetic energy from static fields through Terahertz radiation. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following categories:

  • in vitro studies
  • in vivo studies
  • epidemiology
  • human experimental studies
  • mechanisms of interaction
  • clinical devices and medical applications
  • theoretical and practical modelling
  • instrumentation and methodology
  • dosimetry
  • exposure standards
  • occupational exposure
  • public policy
  • risk assessment

Authors wishing to present papers should submit a short summary and an abstract electronically. Instructions for Authors and the abstract submissions portal can be found at We encourage you to read through the instructions carefully before making your submission at submission system is presently being prepared, and will open on January 8, 2018.

All abstracts will be reviewed and scored by the Technical Program Committee. While we will try to respect authors’ preferences for a platform or poster presentation, this is not always possible when we assemble submitted abstracts into a balanced set of sessions for the final program.

As always, we particularly invite platform and poster submissions from students. There will be a competition (with prizes) for the best student papers (both oral and poster). BioEM2018 will offer travel support to a number of students. Details and information on how to apply will be posted on the BioEM2018 website shortly.

Details of registration options and rates will be available at When registering as a member, please ensure that your BEMS and/or EBEA membership is up to date at the time of the conference, as those who do not have current membership will be required to pay the additional registration fee on site.
