The first Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering in BiH surpassed all expectations

Organized by the Society for Medical and Biological Engineering in BiH (DMBIUBiH), from 13 to 15. March 2015, in Sarajevo, the First Regional Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering (CMBEBiH2015) was held. The conference was attended by more than 500 active and passive participants from the 27 countries of the world who had the opportunity to listen to 13 lectures by eminent lecturers, 68 oral presentations, 22 poster presentations, 9 student workshops and 1 expert workshop, organized at the Clinical Center of the University of Sarajevo.

This event is supported by the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE) and the Academy of Sciences and Arts of BiH. The partners of the Conference are the University of Sarajevo, the University of Tuzla, the University of Zenica, the University of Bihać and many other higher education institutions.

As a lecturer, the three-day conference was attended by eminent names of biomedical engineering such as Ratko Magjarevic, President of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), Mark Bale, Chairman of the Committee for Bioethics within the Council of Europe, Pecchia Leandro, Councilor of the European Alliance for Medical , Biomedical Engineering and Science (EAMBES), Werner Mäntele from the Goethe University Biophysics Institute, and Mustafa Kahramanyol, Gulhane Military Medical Academy from Turkey.
