The International Society of Automation | Setting the Standard for Automation

55th annual Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium

An International Society of Automation Symposium, 501(c)(3) nonprofit

April 13-14, 2018 | North Dakota State University | Fargo, North Dakota

Beginning in 1963, the Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium is the oldest, continuously held biomedical engineering symposium in the United States. It was founded by a group of the most visionary and historical individuals in the field to promote dialog and the exchange of ideas and experiences between attendees, including between professionals and students.

From its beginning as a regional meeting it has grown to a global event regularly attracting attendees from across the world. Since 1970, it has merged with the International Society of Automation Biomedical Sciences Instrumentation Symposium. Submitted papers are peer-reviewed, and those accepted for presentation and publication appear in the yearly issue of Biomedical Sciences Instrumentation journal, an internationally distributed publication by ISA indexed in major databases including Index Medicus / Medline.

Remaining aligned with the goals and traditions of the symposium, the submission of papers from individuals around the globe is encouraged. However, authors should remember that, if accepted, they are expected to attend the symposium to present their work and to interact with the other attendees.

Fundamental topics emphasized at the bioengineering meeting include the following

Bioinstrumentation, Biomaterials, Biomechanics
Biomedical Signal Processing
Cell and Tissue Engineering
Medical Informatics
Biomedical Modeling

*Papers with applications to the various physiological systems (i.e. cardiovascular, orthopaedic, etc.) are particularly welcomed in these areas.

History of RMBS

Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium began in 1963 as a two-day meeting at the United States Air Force Academy to bring together a multi-disciplinary group of faculty from Colorado and Wyoming to share interests in the area of bioengineering.
