The 45th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC 23) will be held at ICC Sydney from Monday to Thursday, featuring over 1,000 speakers and 1,200 poster displays.
Estimates put the economic impact of the event at $7 million, due largely to the majority of delegates attending from overseas. Registrations show 87 per cent of delegates will travel to Australia to attend the conference.
Being managed by the newly formed Arinex Group, the event has surpassed both its delegate and sponsorship targets.
Conference content will explore futuristic concepts like computer-brain interfaces, controlling digital devices with our minds, and computational models of the entire human body.
The event also includes a fully-subscribed Women in Engineering Forum.
“It is incredibly rewarding to be a part of this prestigious event and to be privy to the innovation these bright minds are leading,” said CEO of The Arinex Group, Nicole Walker.
“We congratulate the Committee for their hard work and wish all attendees a successful and enjoyable conference.”
EMBC 23 conference chair Nigel Lovell called the realising of the Australian iteration of the global conference “a labour of love”.
“We are grateful for the sound guidance and great support of Arinex. We are sure that the outstanding scientific program will foster many productive discussions and new collaborations.”
