“Emerging Technologies in Biomedical Engineering” contains papers presented at the First International Symposium on Bioengineering (ISOB 2011) held at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The Symposium is jointly organized by the College of Engineering of Nanyang Technological University and Chang Gung University of Taiwan.

The First International Symposium on Bioengineering is designed to be a major forum for the scientific exchange of multi-disciplinary and inter-organizational aspects of biomedical engineering and related areas, making a significant contribution for further development of these fields. It will also provide a platform for collaboration and joint research amongst the delegation.

ISOB 2011 has 4 parallel tracks:

  1. Bioelectronics, Biosensors and Biophotonics
  2. Functional Imaging
  3. Telecare and Assistive Devices/Rehab Engineering
  4. Tissue Engineering and Rapid Prototyping Based Scaffold Production/Manufacturing

A total of 40 papers will be presented in the 4 parallel tracks.

I am deeply grateful to the track chairs, participants, reviewers, organizing committee and student helpers for contributing to the success of this symposium.
