The World Association for Chinese Biomedical Engineers (WACBE) will hold its 4th WACBE World Congress on Bioengineering 2009 in Hong Kong, China, from 26 to 29 July 2009, hosted by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University with supports from many other institutions and professional societies.

The Association organizes biannual World Congresses. The first congress was held at Taipei in December 2002; the second was held at Beijing in September 2004; and the third was held at Bangkok in July 2007. All the three congresses brought together many biomedical engineers from all over the world to share their experiences and to exchange views on the future development of biomedical engineering. The 4th WACBE World Congress in Hong Kong will continue to offer such a networking forum.

Topics to be presented in the Congress will cover all related areas in bioengineering. Special symposia will be arranged in the following tracks:
  • Biomaterials, Tissues Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  • Biomedical Imaging, Signal Processing, and Health Informatics
  • Biosensors, Bionanotechnology and Medical Devices
  • Cellular, Genomic and Biomolecular Engineering
  • Pharmaceutical Science & Biotechnology
  • Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Clinical Engineering
Apart from the scientific programs including invited plenary and keynote speeches, special symposia, free paper presentations, and product exhibition, student activities and social programs are also available for attendees and their guests. Awards for the best papers for innovation will be set up to young investigators.

Participants at the congress will include young and experienced biomedical engineers, physicians and scientists working in research institutions, universities and hospitals, medical device manufacturers, as well as students in this field. The WACBE World Congress 2009 will be a memorable event for colleagues and friends from all over the world to establish friendship, to promote academic exchanges at an international level and to promote the interests of biomedical engineers.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of WACBE World Congress 2009, we warmly invite you and your colleagues to attend this World Congress. We look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong in 2009.
