On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), it is a pleasure to invite you to attend the annual joint meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), BioEM 2020, in Oxford, United Kingdom, 21-26 June 2020.
BioEM is the world’s largest and most highly recognised bioelectromagnetics conference attracting academic and industrial participants at all career stages from all over the world. It is a great forum for the exchange of scientific achievements, demonstrating state-of-the-art technology, identifying gaps in science and establishing and strengthening professional networks.
With 2020, we mark the beginning of a new decade for development and deployment of new technologies and applications utilizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). The roll-out of 5G cellular technologies promises to offer a host of new services and applications to benefit society, as will many other emerging telecommunication and medical technologies. New understanding of the interaction mechanisms between EMF and biological materials from nanoscale to the whole human body will evolve to form the basis for future technologies and shape future research.
The five-day program of BioEM 2020 will feature invited plenary talks by world-renowned scientists in the field of bioelectromagnetics, a variety of special sessions and panel discussions aligned to the most pressing issues in the field. The program also contains a variety of technical sessions, poster sessions and social functions.
Special attention will be paid to student contributions as these are the bioelectromagnetics community’s future scientists. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in oral and poster sessions, developing their presentation skills, participating in student competitions and networking with other members of the community.
In addition to scientific activities, BioEM 2020 will be your opportunity to visit the historic city of Oxford, which is home to Oxford University, the oldest university in the English-speaking world. With its mix of ancient and modern, there is plenty to do in Oxford, from visiting the historic Ashmolean Museum to the workplace of Charles Darwin the most famous biologist of all time at the Oxford Natural History Museum. Alternatively enjoy the modern culture with a drink, a meal and taking in a show at the Playhouse or shopping till you drop, Oxford has it all!
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Oxford in June 2020!
LOC Co-Chairs, 2020.
