The 2017 Medical Electronics Symposium will be held at University of Texas at Dallas, on May 16-17, 2018. SMTA, iNEMI, and MEPTEC have again joined forces to host the International Symposium, which will focus on innovation in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing specifically targeting medical and bioscience applications. The Symposium will be chaired by Chuck Richardson of the International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI).
Presenters are invited to speak on such topics as implantable devices, diagnostic equipment, personal monitoring, and drug delivery, as well as biosensors, microfluidics, wireless communications and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The Symposium will cover design, miniaturization, materials, manufacturability, test, reliability, and regulatory compliance for Class II and III medical electronics. Other relevant topics include emerging technologies such as stretchable electronics, wireless body area networks, biosensors in novel applications and nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS).
- Flexible/stretchable circuitry in Medical Electronics
- Devices/Sensors/Security - Connected Health Security
- Business and Market Trends in Medical Electronics
