2020 BMES Virtual Annual Meeting



MEETING THEME: A 20/20 Vision of Biomedical Engineering

 
BMES is thrilled to open registration for the 2020 BMES Virtual Meeting, October 14-17! You will want to be sure to reserve your seat for the learning, networking, and idea exchanges planned for the ever-changing world of biomedical engineering!
 
You should expect timely content on technologies for emerging infectious disease, thought-provoking sessions on health disparities and racial justice, student and early career sessions, and fun and competitions! You won’t even have to sit at a computer for 10-hours a day thanks to our new, on-demand sessions and posters - learn on your time! There will be a ton of new components to the meeting and the content you’re familiar with, from our in-person meetings like Meet the Faculty, the Bash, and the LGBTQIA mixer!
 
You will have access to all of this and more with the cost of registration. We have created a constant pricing structure - that means no early bird/advance/on-site price hikes this year! We will be introducing a reduced, limited access pass for non-presenting student attendees (grads and undergrads alike), which will be available for purchase from September 21 - October 7.
  • BMES Virtual Platform - A dynamic digital landscape where we will hold the 2020 BMES Virtual Annual Meeting. As a registered, full-price attendee, you will have 24/7 access to everything! You’ll even have access after the meeting to view all the talks, posters, plenaries, awards, and videos you may have missed.
  • Networking – We know nothing replaces in-person contact, we sure are going to try! You’ll be able to connect with other attendees, authors, and our virtual exhibitors in a number of different ways: one-on-one as well as in small and larger groups!
  • Live and on-demand sessions and posters - Available for viewing on your schedule. We can’t fit hundreds of hours of science in four days, so we will have this content available for you to access at your leisure.
  • Fun - We will host a variety of virtual networking segments throughout the duration of the program and for those competitive types: contests and prizes!
  • Plenaries and Sessions – Daily, powerful speakers ready to share their knowledge and experience through their talks and lectures.
  • Posters - Attendees will have access to thousands of posters with opportunities to engage with the authors and Meet the Faculty candidates throughout the meeting.
  • Student and Early Career Programming - Student-targeted programming, including the Student Design Competition sponsored by Medtronic, graduate student sessions, career sessions, and more!
