As the Chairs of BioEM 2023 and on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee (LOC), it is a great pleasure to invite you to attend the second annual meeting of our new BioEM society, here in Oxford, United Kingdom, 18-23 June 2023.
BioEM is the world’s largest and most significant 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 research, identifying gaps in science and establishing and strengthening professional networks.
Oxford was the chosen venue for BioEM 2020 which was unfortunately canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the last two years, colleagues from Belgium and Japan worked very hard to run our annual meetings in a hybrid format to allow both physical and online participations as we continued to struggle with international travel and local requirements. With COVID-19 pandemic restrictions largely lifted in the majority of countries and no travel restrictions to the UK, the organisers of BioEM 2023 aim to run the event on a physical attendance only basis. We believe that it is of utmost importance to meet colleagues across the world face to face to maximise networking opportunities in particular for the younger generation of bioelectromagentics scientists.
The five-day program of BioEM 2023 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 our community’s future scientists. This year, the registration fee has been heavily subsidized by BioEM to encourage student participation. 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 the scientific program, BioEM 2023 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 and the workplace of 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 Oxford Playhouse or shopping till you drop, Oxford has it all!
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Oxford in June 2023!
LOC Co-Chairs, 2023.
