Dear colleagues,

The BioEM2018 Local Organizing Committee, The Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), welcome you to Portorož, Slovenia for the Annual Joint Meeting of our two societies from 24th to 29th of June 2018.

As the premier international conference in the area of bioelectromagnetics, BioEM2018 is expected to stimulate further research in this field through the exchange of ideas and invigorating discussions, consolidating the state-of-the-art knowledge, and identifying existing gaps to be filled.

The five day program of the congress will feature invited plenary talks by world-renowned scientists in the field of bioelectromagnetics, a variety of special sessions and panel discussions aligned with the most pressing issues in the field of bioelectromagnetics, as well as informative technical sessions, poster sessions, and social functions. The meeting aims at presenting and advancing high quality research in basic and applied science in bioelectromagnetics to address medical applications, health concerns, and regulations associated with EMF. The meeting also offers participants from all over the world the opportunity to interact and exchange experiences among each other.

Special attention will be paid to student contribution and competitions which are the focus at the BioEM meetings for many years now. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in an oral or poster session thus developing their communication skills and networking with other members of the bioelectromagnetics community.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the St. Bernardin Conference Centre which is located at a tourist resort by the Adriatic Sea, within walking distance to the towns of Portorož and Piran – two beautiful towns that offer every visitor a truly authentic cultural remix influenced by the Northern Mediterranean, combining inspiring modernity and fascinating history. The St. Bernardin Conference Centre offers an exceptional venue for meetings and conferences, as well as for leisure and relaxation.

Slovenia also offers many other tourist attractions. Beautiful Ljubljana, the capital city of Slovenia, is 1 hour away by car and the famous Postojna cave, only 45 minutes away. The Lipica Stud farm, the craddle of all Lipizzaner horses in the world, is only 30 minutes away by car. Famous Venice, Italy, could be reached in only 2 hours’ drive.

We believe that this will be a fruitful scientific meeting in stimulative and relaxing environment by the Adriatic Sea shore.

We are delighted to welcome you all at our next BioEM joint meeting in Portorož, Slovenia
