Welcome Message from Conference Chairs
We cordially invite to the 54th Annual Conference of the German Society for Biomedical Engineering from September 29th until October 1st, 2020 in Leipzig. Physicians, engineers and scientists are very welcome to present contributions from all areas of biomedical technology and to discuss current research results as well as technology and clinical application trends.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), Personalized Medicine and Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will be the main conference topics. Parallel tracks on all topics of bio-medical technology will be organized closly 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. The integration of several clinical societies (DGU, DGHNO, iSMIT, EUFUS, DGMP, DGEBV, more tbc) and the medical technology industry will enrich the program. The promotion of young talents is also of great importance to us.
The BMT conference will take place in the heart of Leipzig at the new Campus Augustusplatz of Leipzig University. Furthermore, visits of our clinical partners, ORs and the Innovation Center Computer Assisted Surgery (ICCAS) will be offered. On September 29, the 15th anniversary of ICCAS will be celebrated at the conference venue, to which all participants are warmly invited. The social event on September 30 will take place in the FELIX rooftop bar from where Leipzig’s impressive skyline can be enjoyed.
