Current Directions in Biomedical Engineering (CDBME)
„Current Directions in Biomedical Engineering (CDBME) is an open access journal and closely related to the journal Biomedical Engineering – Biomedizinische Technik (BME-BMT) that is well established and of high quality for more than 50 years. Current Directions in Biomedical Engineering is as BME-BMT a forum for the exchange of knowledge in the fields of biomedical engineering, medical information technology and biotechnology/bioengineering for medicine and addresses engineers, natural scientists, and clinicians working in research, industry, or clinical practice. Subject areas are: Diagnostic imaging, image processing, biosignal processing, modeling and simulation, biomechanics, information and communication in medicine, telemedicine and e-health, surgery and minimum invasive interventions, endoscopy and image guided therapy, diagnostic and therapeutic instrumentation, clinical engineering, micro- and nano-systems in medicine, active implants, biosensors, neuro-engineering, neural systems, rehabilitation and prosthetics, biomaterials, cellular and tissue engineering, artificial organs,  biomedical engineering for audiology, ophthalmology, emergency and dental medicine, general subjects (e.g., education and training, health technology assessment) and special topics (e.g., linking proteomics and genomics with biomedical engineering).”
 

DGBMT Students Competition

The DGBMT calls for participation of students presenting their research projects or diploma theses results. The best contributions are awarded certificates and prizes (posters and oral presentations in a common process).

1. Prize: 1000 EUR

2. Prize: 300 EUR

3. Prize: 200 EUR

Places 1 - 10 each receive a textbook from the Biomedical Engineering series.

These submissions are subject to the conference peer review process and subsequently will undergo an additional evaluation based on quality, degree of innovation and presentation of the scientific-technical work.

The best 10 papers are assessed by the jurors during the running sessions of the BMT conference and a ranking established. All finalists receive a participation certificate. Criteria for assessment by jurors of the Fachausschuss Aus- und Weiterbildung der DGBMT im VDE (see on the right side)

Conditions of participation:

Only first authors are admitted for presentation at the BMT conference satisfying the following conditions:

  • at the time of submission they must be enrolled as a student at a university,
  • they have to be younger than 30 years on the last day of the conference and
  • a member of the DGBMT (or of one of the two affiliate societies in Austria or Switzerland; in the first year DGBMT membership comes free of charge for students.)

If parts of dissertations are submitted,  the doctoral degree should not yet be finished. In consequence  scientific assistants, doctoral students and Ph.D. students are allowed to participate if they fulfill all listed requirements.

Please note that the final papers must have been finished when submitted.

A completed application (application form) including an application endorsement for participation in the student competition  by a university lecturer or professor supervising the thesis or dissertation shall be submitted in electronic form (PDF document) together with the paper (conference paper). The paper shall present only current research work which may have been terminated not more than one year before the deadline for submission. In the absence of supporting the participant will be eliminated.

Preparation of the paper:

Papers for the DGBMT student competition may be submitted as a presentation or a poster the assignment of which is in the hands of the conference scientific advisory board. In the case of the submitted paper shall refer only to the personal contribution of the author.

The submitted paper (conference paper) for the DGBMT student competition should not exceed a maximum of 4 pages (PDF document, no password protection) and may be written in German or English.

Please use the binding structuring and formatting templates (available below) for conference papers. The submission of papers (PDF document without password protection) is by means of a web-based manuscript handling system.
