Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium

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

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. The group decided to meet again the following year and established a board of directors to continue and advance the annual organization.
