The Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference (SBEC) series was conceived by bioengineering professionals from academia and industry located primarily in the southern United States in 1982. The first Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference was held at the LSU Medical Center, Shreveport, Louisiana, in 1982 chaired by the founder of SBEC Dr. Subrata Saha. Since then it has been held annually in different cities, mostly in the southern United States, and has grown to become a global event that regularly attracts attendees from all over the world. Submitted abstracts and invited manuscripts are peer-reviewed, and those abstracts and papers accepted for presentation and publication appear in the yearly issue of SBEC proceedings. The SBEC serves a special purpose by emphasizing participation from young professionals and advanced students. Since established investigators present their research in the same sessions with the students, it encourages a high level of professionalism as a standard for young investigators and students at all levels. In keeping with the emphasis on student participation, the SBEC presents best paper and presentation awards to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. Submission of abstracts and papers from individuals from around the world is highly encouraged. However, if their abstracts are accepted, an author or co-author must attend the conference to present their work and to interact with other attendees.
Here are the main objectives of the event:
- To enhance participation from young professionals and advanced students in bioengineering
- Encourage a high level of professionalism as a standard for young investigators and students
- To foster and promote research and development and education in biomedical engineering
