Call for Abstracts



Abstract Deadline: November 1, 2017

Submit an Abstract

You are invited to submit an abstract for the 2018 Medical Electronics Symposium to be held at May 16-17, 2018 at the University of Texas at Dallas. SMTA, iNEMI, and MEPTEC have again joined forces to host the International Symposium, which will focus on innovation in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing specifically targeting medical and bioscience applications. The Symposium will be chaired by Chuck Richardson of the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI). Please submit your abstract to be considered for the Symposium.

Presenters are invited to speak on such topics as implantable devices, diagnostic equipment, personal monitoring, and drug delivery, as well as biosensors, microfluidics, wireless communications and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The Symposium will cover design, miniaturization, materials, manufacturability, test, reliability, and regulatory compliance for Class II and III medical electronics. Other relevant topics include emerging technologies such as stretchable electronics, wireless body area networks, biosensors in novel applications and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).

Suggested Topics:

  • Flexible/stretchable circuitry in Medical Electronics
  • Devices/Sensors/Security - Connected Health Security
  • Business and Market Trends in Medical Electronics
  • Medical Electronic Product Design
  • Medical Diagnostic & Imaging
  • Wearables in Healthcare
  • IoT Solutions for Medical Technologies
  • Medical Assembly/test
  • Miniaturization
  • Reliability Concerns in Medical Products
  • Biological Compatibility
  • Electronic Prosthetics

    The abstract and presentation must be non-commercial in nature and emphasize the medical technology and not the company portfolio. There is no technical paper requirement for this symposium.

    Presentations are due on November 1, 2017.
