The Student Conference of the BioMedTec Science Campus

03. - 05. March 2020

The 9th annual student conference is held from March 3-5 of 2020. Graduate students at the master's level, studying technical fields at the University and the University of Applied Sciences of Lübeck will present their research findings from projects, intern semesters, and theses performed at universities, hospitals, international research institutes, or for companies. The conference is focused on topics related to medical technology and medical informatics. Results will be published in the conference proceedings.

Students submit their research findings as a four-page technical paper, written in English. Professor Thorsten M. Buzug explains the assessment procedure, "These submissions are subject to review by the program committee, after which they are released for publishing in the conference proceedings." Professor Buzug explains further, "During the conference, students are assessed by their colleagues, who, with the help of evaluation criteria, determine the winners for the lecture awards." Together with Professor Handels, Professor Klein and Professor Mertins, Professor Buzug serves as the scientific director of the conference.

The conference is structured along two main focuses. On the first day, students present their research findings in poster sessions. A jury finally selects the best posters, which are awarded with a poster award at the end of the conference. At the same time, the "Recruiticon" takes place, which aims to promote the exchange between students and companies. Business representatives present their companies in the exhibition and inform students about entry opportunities and professions.

The second aim of the conference is for students to present their research projects in plenary sessions. Company representatives and others who are interested are invited to attend these lectures to gain insight into the current research topics being explored at the universities.

The BioMedTec Student Conference is organized by the Institute of Medical Engineering, the Institute of Medical Informatics, the Institute of Signal Processing at the University of Lübeck and the Medical Sensors and Devices Laboratory of the Lübeck University of Applied Sciences. Registration for the conference is required. Participation in the conference is free for students of the universities of Lübeck.
