It is time to offer a bouquet of interesting professional programs again, as many deadlines are approaching.
You have missed the opportunity to publish something at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA 2009), but professional attendants are still welcome to join the conference in May at the convention center of Kobe, Japan. There is not much time left to submit something to the biggest triannual World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering, held in Munch 7-12. September. Actually, it's the aggregation of 5 different BME conferences. Next is the International Conference on Medical Information Systems Engineering (ICMISE 2009) in Tokyo, Japan. Papers for this year's IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent RObots and Systems (IROS) are due on 1st March, just as the applications for the exceptional summer workshop on Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering in Telluride, CO, organized by Dr. Etienne-Cummings from JHU. Quickly approaching the deadline for the September London MICCAI (International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention), and you still have some time to consider the annual EMBC (31st Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society), held in Minneapolis early September. If you are more surgery oriented, consired the First International Conference on Recent Advances in Surgery (ICOS-2009) that will be held in Kottayam, India , 4-6 September. Finally, do not forget about the SMIT2009 (20th International Conference of Society for Medical Innovation and Technology) either, that is only due to early June, and will be held in Romania. See you all there!
