Welcome to

Dear colleagues,

The BioEM2019 Local Organizing Committee, The Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA), welcome you to Montpellier, France for the Annual Joint Meeting of our two societies from June 23rd to 28th 2019

[Our Event]
BIOEM 2019

As the premier international conference in the area of bioelectromagnetics, BioEM2019 is expected to stimulate further research in this field through the exchange of ideas and invigorating discussions, consolidating the state-of-the-art knowledge, and identifying existing gaps to be filled.

The five day program of the congress will feature invited plenary talks by world-renowned scientists in the field of bioelectromagnetics, a variety of special sessions and panel discussions aligned with the most pressing issues in the field of bioelectromagnetics, as well as informative technical sessions, poster sessions, and social functions. The meeting aims at presenting and advancing high quality research in basic and applied science in bioelectromagnetics to address medical applications, health concerns, and regulations associated with EMF. The meeting also offers participants from all over the world the opportunity to interact and exchange experiences among each other.

Special attention will be paid to student contribution and competitions which are the focus at the BioEM meetings for many years now. Students from around the world will have the opportunity to present their work in an oral or poster session thus developing their communication skills and networking with other members of the bioelectromagnetics community.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the Corum, conference center located downtown Montpellier. The Corum is prestigious complex at the heart of the city (10 min walk from the train station) in the heart of France’s largest pedestrianized area. With its innovative design, this prestigious multi-faceted venue is one of the great facilities that have earned Montpellier its place among the Mediterranean’s top business tourism destinations. Montpellier Mediterranean Métropole in the south of France is an exceptional destination, rich in character. It has earned its place as one of the major European venues for business tourism. It is a truly unique destination for event organizers, offering both a modern outlook and a certain art of living.

Montpellier is strategically positioned within the Mediterranean region, benefiting from a deep-water port, an international airport, links by TGV to Paris and Barcelona, and two motorways. Montpellier Mediterranean Métropole is easy to reach directly by plane from Paris (1h10), London (1h45) and Amsterdam (1h55). The airport offers a mix of legacy and low cost companies and is served by 17 airlines: AirFrance, SAS, Germania, British Airways, Aer Lingus, Eurowings, KLM, Easyjet, Ryanair, Air Algerie, Royal Air Maroc, Air Arabia, Norvegian.com, Transavia, Volotea, Chalair, Hop!

We believe that this will be a fruitful scientific meeting in stimulant pleasant Mediterranean environment 10 min away from the Mediterranean sea.

We are delighted to welcome you all at our BioEM2019 joint meeting in Montpellier, France!
