COST EMF-MED is co-organizing BioEM 2016, the premier international conference in the area of bioelectromagnetics to be held 5-10 June 2016 in Ghent, Belgium. BioEM conferences are organized as Annual Joint Meetings of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA).

All info about the conference can be found on BioEM2016 web site, including the full program of the conference and all travel and local info:

The conference will take place at Culture and Convention Center Het Pand, a former Dominican monastery located at Onderbergen 1, in the historic city center.
