International Conference on Nanochannels, Microchannels, and Minichannels (ICNMM)

August 27-31, 2017 – Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA

ICNMM provides a platform for researchers to exchange information and identify research needs in this emerging area encompassing many engineering, basic science, and biomedical disciplines. Both fundamental aspects including transport studies at the nano-, micro-, and mini- scales as well as practical applications including thermal management, energy conversion, lab-on-a-chip, and biomedical devices are covered.

International Design Engineering Technical Conferences (IDETC) and Computers and Information in Engineering Conference (CIE)

August 6-9, 2017 – Cleveland, Ohio, USA

IDETC/CIE highlights emerging technologies that impact the critical engineering issues of product design and development, manufacturing, and the management and integration of information systems throughout the product life-cycle. Specialty conferences within the IDETC/CIE program most relevant to bioengineering include topics such as biologically-inspired design, bio-mechatronics – medical devices and technologies, robotics and mobile machines, micro- and nano-systems, tribology, and biomedical implants.

International Mechanical Engineering Congress and Exposition (IMECE)

November 3-9, 2017 – Tampa, Florida, USA

IMECE is the largest interdisciplinary mechanical engineering conference in the world and plays a significant role in stimulating innovation from basic discovery to translational application in all facets of mechanical engineering. IMECE has an entire track focused on biomedical and biotechnology engineering, which includes topics such as biomedical imaging and tissue characterization, tissue and biomaterials, biomedical devices and biotransport. In addition, topics of interest to bioengineers are included in other tracks, such as fluids engineering, heat transfer and thermal engineering, materials (genetics to structures), and micro- and nano-systems engineering and packaging.

Manufacturing Science and Engineering Conference (MSEC)

June 4-8, 2017 – Los Angeles, California, USA

MSEC is an annual forum for the scholarly exchange of advanced manufacturing research knowledge. It is intended to disseminate the most recent developments in manufacturing research through technical presentations, poster sessions, and panel sessions. A track for this conference has been dedicated to bio and sustainable manufacturing, which is designed to include topics such as biomedical devices and tissue-engineered scaffolds.

Summer Heat Transfer Conference (SHTC)

July 9-14, 2017 – Bellevue, Washington, USA

This conference will bring together international researchers and engineers focusing on heat and mass transfer in a variety of applications, including biotechnology. SHTC has a dedicated track for heat and mass transfer in biotechnology, with topics that include energy-based therapies and modeling of bioheat transfer.

Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems (SMASIS)

September 18-20, 2017 – Snowbird, Utah, USA

Adaptive structures and materials systems are intelligent, flexible systems that sense and respond to ever changing environments. To lead this high-impact growth field into the future, the purpose of this conference is to assemble world experts across engineering and scientific disciplines to actively discuss the latest breakthroughs in smart materials, the cutting-edge in adaptive structure applications and the recent advances in both new device technologies and basic engineering research.

Verification and Validation Symposium (V&V)

The V&V Symposium brings together engineers and scientists from a wide-variety of disciplines – including biomedical engineering – that use computational modeling and simulation to discuss and exchange ideas and methods for verification of codes and solutions, simulation validation, and assessment of uncertainties in mathematical models, computational solutions, and experimental data. The intent is to create an environment where scientists and engineers in various fields, who do not normally have an opportunity to interact, will be able to share verification and validation methods, approaches, success and failures, and ideas for the future.
