The purpose of the IFMBE Young Investigator Competition is to recognize excellence in conference contributions whose primary authors are young investigators; based on originality, clarity, and potential impact on practical applications or theoretical foundations.
Young Investigators are concerned persons under the age of 35 working in the field of biomedical engineering and science. Young investigators must be the first authors of the paper and have to present the paper/poster at the conference themselves.
Authors whose abstracts have been accepted are invited to publish their full papers as part of the IFMBE Conference Proceedings published by SpringerNature. There are no extra fees involved in this process.
The IFMBE Conference Proceedings book series is indexed by SCOPUS and is expected to be made available to Congress participants during the Congress.
