Meeting date



Hamid reports:
I attended the 35th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC'13), which was held in Osaka, Japan from 3 July, 2013 to 7 July, 2013.
It was a great opportunity to meet some of IEEE EMBS Organizers and R10 Chapter Chairs and discuss the activities of NZN EMBS chapter and future collaboration between NZN, other R10 chapters particularly Australia and Malaysia chapters.
The same as last year, NZN EMBS chapter was invited to be the technical supporter of IEEE EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Engineering & Sciences 2014 (IECBES 2014) to be held in Malaysia.
