About EMF-Med conference

The conference is the outcome and the final event of a 4-year project COST EMF-MED. EMF-Med world conference is organized to promote systematical research and development of EMF-Med topics: beneficial biomedical interactions and applications of electromagnetic fields (EMFs).

The systematical approach to EMF-Med applications requires a dedicated community – a world-wide concerted R&D network – to sustain the required interdisciplinary knowledge: underlying biological mechanisms, knowledgable engineering, reliable setups – having medical applications and patient benefit as the final goal.

Conference topics:

The topics of interest include: cancer EMF interactions and applications, non-cancer EMF interactions and applications, EMF dosimetry – in silico tools & measurements, such as (but not limited to):

  • Thermal and non-thermal EMF-based cancer interactions and applications
  • EMF stimulation of excitable and non-excitable tissues – electroceuticals, bioelectronic medicine
  • EMF and neuromodulation – CNS and PNS electrostimulation
  • EMF-based neural repair and regeneration
  • Electromagnetic hyperthermia
  • Electromagnetic (RF, microwave) thermal ablation
  • Electroporation
  • Novel modalities for non-thermal EMF-based cancer treatment
  • EMF-based (microwave) medical imaging
  • EMF and immune response
  • Genes and cellular mechanisms involved in biological EMF interactions
  • EMF-based tissue regeneration
  • EMF applications in aesthetic medicine
  • EMF-mediated drug delivery
  • Nanoparticles in EMF-Med applications
  • Functionalized, integrated, multi-level anatomical models and tools
  • Dielectric properties of biological tissues
  • Neural tissue electromagnetic models
  • EMF microdosimetry
  • Experimental setups for EMF-Med related research
  • other medical procedures, applications, and technologies that are essentially and functionally based on EMFs.

Industry participation and related topics are welcome.

The conference will be followed by the (first ever!) Focus Issue of the Bioelectromagnetics journal (published by Wiley, IF: 1.933), dedicated to EMF-Med 2018 conference. Check the Call for Papers at the conference web site.
