Call for Abstracts

Call for Abstracts

BioEM2018, the premier international conference on bioelectromagnetics and the annual joint meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA) will be held June 24-29 in Portorož, Slovenia.

The submissions system is now closed and no longer accepting submissions.
The abstract submission deadline has been set at March 9, 2018 and has now passed.
Thank you for your interest!

We invite abstracts for platform presentations and poster sessions. Original papers are solicited for presentation (in English) on the interaction of biological systems with electromagnetic energy from static fields through Terahertz radiation. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following categories:

  • in vitro studies
  • in vivo studies
  • epidemiology
  • human experimental studies
  • mechanisms of interaction
  • clinical devices and medical applications
  • theoretical and practical modelling
  • instrumentation and methodology
  • dosimetry
  • exposure standards
  • occupational exposure
  • public policy
  • risk assessment

Authors wishing to present papers should submit a short summary and an abstract electronically. Instructions for Authors and the abstract submissions portal can be found at (link to the PDF can also be found at the bottom of this page). We encourage you to read through the instructions carefully before making your submission.

All abstracts will be reviewed and scored by the Technical Program Committee. While we will try to respect authors’ preferences for a platform or poster presentation, this is not always possible when we assemble submitted abstracts into a balanced set of sessions for the final program.

As always, we particularly invite platform and poster submissions from students. There will be a competition (with prizes) for the best student papers (both oral and poster). BioEM2018 will offer travel support to a number of students. See the Student Support page for instructions on how to apply.
