Mediterranean Conference on Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing (MEDICON 2013)

25-28 September, 2013, Seville (Spain)


MEDICON is a regional conference with a long tradition and high scientific level, which is organized every three years in a Mediterranean country under the umbrella of the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE).

The general theme of MEDICON 2013 is "Research and Development of Technology for Sustainable Healthcare". This decade is being characterized by the appearance and use of emergent technologies under development. This situation has produced a tremendous impact on Medicine and Biology from which it is expected an unparalleled evolution in these disciplines towards novel concept and practices.

The consequence will be a significant improvement in health care and well-fare, i.e. the shift from a reactive medicine to a preventive medicine. This shift implies that the citizen will play an important role in the healthcare delivery process, what requires a comprehensive and personalized assistance. In this context, society will meet emerging media, incorporated to all objects, capable of providing a seamless, adaptive, anticipatory, unobtrusive and pervasive assistance.

The challenge will be to remove current barriers related to the lack of knowledge required to produce new opportunities for all the society, while new paradigms are created for this inclusive society to be socially and economically sustainable, and respectful with the environment. In this way, the conference program will be focused on the convergence of biomedical engineering topics ranging from formalized theory through experimental science and technological development to practical clinical applications.



Prospective authors are invited to prepare their contributions according to the IFBME Proceedings Series format. Manuscripts should be up to four (4) pages long and should be submitted electronically in their final form before the paper submission deadline, including an abstract, no longer than 300 words. Submissions must include the title of the paper, each author's name and affiliation, the suggested topics in which the paper falls, and the IFMBE copyright transfer form. Check below for specific information on the electronic submission process, detailed publication guidelines and templates. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from the Scientific International Committee under the supervision of the International Program Committee. They will be judged with respect to their quality, originality, and relevance.
