Welcome

The BioEM2021 Local Organizing Committee, the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), welcome you for the Annual Joint Meeting of our two societies from 26th of September to 1st of October 2021.

As the premier international conference in the area of bioelectromagnetics, BioEM2021 is expected to stimulate further research in this field through the exchange of ideas and lively debate on state-of-the-art knowledge, as well as on knowledge gaps to be filled. BioEM2021 will feature plenary talks by world-renowned scientists, a variety of sessions, workshops and tutorials focusing on the most pressing issues in the field of medical applications, health concerns, and regulations associated with electromagnetic fields. Student competitions are also a focus of the conference. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in an oral or poster session while developing their technical communication skills and networking with the bioelectromagnetics community.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 congress will be organized using a hybrid model.

There will be opportunity to physically participate in the congress that will be organized in “het Pand” in Ghent (Belgium), one hour west of Brussels and close to Antwerp and Bruges. The city of Ghent is a compact, authentic city where the past and present co-exist in perfect balance. Ghent is one of the most beautiful historic cities in Europe and was given several pretty names: historic heart of Flanders, a city of all times, medieval Manhattan, Europe’s best kept secret. Het Pand in Gent is a former Dominican cloister located in the beautiful medieval centre of Ghent and will offer delegates to BioEM2021 the opportunity to participate in the premier bioelectromagnetics meeting in an unforgettable environment.

Next to the offline meeting, there will be an opportunity to participate through an online platform in BioEM2021. More information about this online platform will be provided when available.

It is of particular pleasure for the Local Organizing Committee and the presidents of BEMS and EBEA to welcome conference delegates from around the world either to the wonderful city of Ghent or online to participate in and contribute to BioEM2021.
