The 6th WACBE World Congress on Bioengineering
Beijing, China, August 5-8, 2013

The 6th WACBE World Congress on Bioengineering was successfully held in Beihang University, Beijing, China, on August 5-8, 2013. The congress covered a wide variety of areas in bioengineering including biomechanics, biomaterial, rehabilitation, tissue engineering, biomolecular engineering, biomedical image, biosensor, etc., and offered an interdisciplinary platform for bioengineers to share and exchange experiences, suggestions and opinions. Over 400 participants around the world gathered in Beihang University for 4 days of scientific communication.

We gratefully invited Prof. Shu Chien (University of California San Diego), Prof. Savio Woo (University of Pittsburgh), Prof. Chien Ho (Carnegie Mellon University), Prof. Kam Leong (Duke University), and Prof. Depei Liu (Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences) to give plenary speeches on the essential themes in Bioengineering. We also gratefully invited 38 experts to give 20 invited keynote and 18 session keynote speeches in the congress.

The congress totally received 327 abstract, and organized 18 oral sessions and 11 poster sessions. Two special forums were highlighted on the program, one on biomedical education and one on biomedical industry, where educational experts and directors from famous BME companies in China, respectively, were invited to share their valuable views and opinions with congress attendees. In the congress, three people won Savio & Pattie Woo Travelling Fellowship, and six people won Young Investigator's Awards.

We are thankful to the WACBE Council, who offers us the opportunity and guidance for organizing the congress. We are also thankful to the sponsors and exhibitors for their great support of the congress. Finally, we appreciate all participants for the wonderful presentation and sharing ideas and expertise.
