Australia has built an enviable reputation for innovation in medical bionic devices.
This conference series has proven popular for its excellent scientific content, its boutique size and relaxed feel. Quality venues and the external activities have helped create lasting memories for delegates.
The 2016 conference will bring to Australia recognised international experts in the field of medical bionics, provide an insight to the significant Australian achievements in this field, provide opportunities for delegates to visit local facilities, and to foster new alliances between Australian researchers with their overseas colleagues.
The conference will explore the following themes:
One of the most distinct aspects of this meeting will be the great breadth of presentations; describing new and emerging disciplines that will help shape the development of medical bionics over the next two decades. Further, the meeting will provide inspiration and focus for the next generation of researchers in this field through a strong emphasis on poster presentations and networking opportunities.
The Conference will be held on campus at the University of Queensland, only minutes from the Brisbane CBD.
I warmly extend an invitation to you to join us for this exciting event.
