The 2016 Medical Electronics Symposium will take place September 14-15 at Marylhurst University near Portland, Ore. SMTA, iNEMI, and MEPTEC will host the International Symposium, which will focus on innovation in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing specifically targeting medical and bioscience applications.

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).

The abstract and presentation must be non-commercial in nature and emphasize the medical technology, not the company portfolio. There is no technical paper requirement for this symposium. Presentations are due on August 8.
