Welcome Message from Conference Chairs to the BMT 2020 Online Conference
We look forward having you join us virtually!
We cordially invite you to join us for the virtual 54th Annual Conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering from September 29th until October 1st, 2020. Physicians, engineers and scientists will present contributions from all areas of biomedical technology and discuss current research results as well as technology and clinical application trends.
For reasons of safety we have decided to organize this year’s BMT conference as an online event. This was not an easy decision. However, it gives us greater planning security and the certainty that the conference will take place in any case. This way the authors, speakers, exhibitors and all guests will get to keep their trusted BMT platform for exchange and networking on current topics again this year.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), Personalized Medicine and Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will be the main conference topics and we will also take up the pandemic theme in context with the BMT society. Furthermore, the topics of the cancelled Active Assisted Living (AAL) Congress are going to be integrated into the BMT Congress. Parallel tracks on all topics of bio-medical technology will be organized closely together with the DGBMT professional committees as to show key technologies, scientific movements and new innovation fields. In addition, we want to strengthen the clinical input with leading physicians accompanying the tracks and giving keynotes. We are particularly grateful for the outstanding support of many leading clinicians of the University Hospital Leipzig still committed to join and cochair sessions and presenting their exciting clinical work as invited speakers. The integration of several clinical societies (e.g. DGU, DGHNO, DGMP, DGEBV, EAMBES) and the medical technology industry will further enrich the program. The promotion of young talents is also of great importance to us and will receive its attention within the framework of the virtual program of the BMT’s YoungNet.
The conference is organized by the German Society for Biomedical Engineering (DGBMT) within VDE and the Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery of the Leipzig University’s Faculty of Medicine.
We are looking forward to welcome you online at BMT 2020 and we are hoping the new format will help to promote the important knowledge exchange. More information regarding virtual attendance can be found at:
