Present Your research to the world!

The World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering - the triennial scientific meeting of the IUPESM-  being held in Munich, Germany, on September 7 – 12, 2009 is the world’s leading forum for presenting the results of current scientific work as well as major innovations in health-related technologies to an international audience.

Held every three years, the congress provides an ideal inter- and multidisciplinary platform that brings together people from basic research, R&D, industry and medical applications, incorporating key aspects such as information and communication technologies, micro- and nano-systems, optics, tissue engineering and biotechnology.

The World Congress 2009 is dedicated to supporting and promoting an intense inter- and multidisciplinary knowledge exchange among professionals in the areas that will be the major driving force for future innovations in medical technologies and medicine.

We invite you to participate in this world-class scientific event and have a unique opportunity to present your research, innovations and technologies to the world.

Don’t miss this outstanding opportunity!

Advance our professions and global health!

Since the first World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering convened in 1982, medically and biologically oriented engineers and physicists from every continent have gathered every three years to discuss how physics and engineering can advance medicine, health and health care and to assess the clinical, scientific, and technical progess in their fields.

In the tradition and the mission of our professions, which are the only ones involved in the whole loop of health and health care from basic research to the development, assessment, production, management and application of medical technologies, the theme of WC2009 is "For the benefit of the Patient".

Thus, in addition to scientifc aspects, the Congress will focus on all aspects of safe and efficient health technology in both industrialized and developing countries, including economic issues, the perspectives that advanced technologies and innovations in medicine and health care offer for the patients  and the development of societies, the progress of medical Bioengineering and Medical Physics, including health policy and educational issues as well as the need for the regulations as health professionals of those biomedical/ clinical engineers and medical physicists who are working  in the health care systems.

The World Congress, bringing together physicists, engineers and phsicians from all over the world, including the delegates of the 138 constituent organizations of the IUPESM representing some 140,000 individual members, is the best place to discuss these issues. I invite you to participate and to submit your papers regarding these topics - in addition to your scientific papers from all fields of medical & biological engineering and medical physics.

Even if you do not intend to submit a paper, still mark your calender. The World Congress, as most important event of our professions, provides the best possible opportunity for discussions, to meet old friends and to make new ones.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Munich!
