A welcome letter from our
2023 BMES Annual Meeting Co-chairs:

The 2023 BMES Annual Meeting Co-Chairs are thrilled to invite you to this year’s meeting!

From October 11-14, 2023, in the vibrant city of Seattle, Washington, we will gather for networking, education, and continued growth in the Biomedical Engineering field. The BMES Annual Meeting is a premier event centered around topics and discussions specific to our community. The theme of this year’s meeting is focused on the convergence of three pillars essential to our field’s success: Science, Technology, and Social Transformation.

Our vision is to center the perspective that the future of Biomedical Engineering requires open and curious evaluation of complex scientific challenges while candidly considering intersectionality and social factors. Through creative programming, we will ensure that these three pillars are interwoven into all aspects of the meeting.

We will also prioritize ways to improve accessibility and inclusion, re-imagining ways to build a sense of community by leveraging this meeting. We plan to continue offering quality diversity and inclusion events and highlight the importance of social transformation through plenary talks and platform session lectures. In addition, we aim to normalize education and conversations about barriers that members of our community face. As in previous years, we look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of individuals who have significantly impacted the Biomedical Engineering community by rewarding their achievements on-site. As details on awards become available, we ask you to nominate someone who inspires you. 

We cannot wait to share the 2023 BMES Annual Meeting with you as we re-imagine biological, technological, and societal solutions for engineering human health.

See you in Seattle!
