BME@LiU 2023

Graphics, the words BME made out of other words, white text och black background.

BME@LiU 2023 is a conference day filled with activities to highlight the research conducted at LiU in the field of biomedical engineering. The ambition is to make BME@LiU a meeting place for all who are active in the field, in order to create collaboration and discussion.

Biomedical Engineering, or MedTech, lies at the intersection of many of LiUs strength and strategic areas. It involves development of state-of-the-art technologies such as biosensors, medical imaging, AI, eHealth, visualization, with many applications in Life Sciences, e.g. circulatory and metabolic diseases, inflammation, neurological diseases and cancer.

BME@LiU is a day filled with activities related to the field of biomedical engineering (BME). From invited and contributed talks, to posters, exhibitions, and mingling. These activities reach out to all researchers, companies, organizations, students and clinicians who support, contribute to, or utilize BME technologies.

Register for BME@LiU 2023

Note: Extended deadline for abstract submission for oral presentations to March 29

In this fourth iteration of this cross-disciplinary event, we invite you to attend and/or submit abstracts on any topic related to BME. Joint collaboration presentations involving either (1) BME and Clinical Research or (2) BME in Basic Science are strongly encouraged, but individual research talks, and group or student posters will also be welcome. More information can be found under open call below. Full program will follow shortly. 

The conference will be held in English.

When: April 20, 08.30 - 17.00
Where: Norra Entrén, Campus US and via Zoom
Who: (1) Anyone actively engaged in the development of novel technologies, data processing or utilization to address unmet needs in “medicine and health”. 
(2) Anyone interested in employing new technologies and methods in their own research (from basic science to clinical studies).

Open call for research and resource presentations

This is your community, submit a presentation and share what you have to offer.

At BME@LiU 2023, we will offer five themed sessions to highlight the diverse research conducted by our broad and innovative community. 

Morning parallel sessions

In the morning we will have three parallel sessions that will focus on different aspects of medical technology development and translation.

  1. Biosensors, biomaterials, and actuators: This track will focus on technology, ultilization, and technique development that involve bio-sensing/imaging, bio-materials, actuators and/or transducers (i.e. anything that influences, interacts or measures biological media).
  2. Data Analysis: This track will focus on data processing methods that involve Machine learning, A.I., Image Processing, Modelling, Aggregation and Visualization, etc. (e.g. anything that interprets and analyzes data from biological media).
  3. eHealth and Clinical Implementation: This track will focus on clinical decision support and management, bioethics, end-user visualization and communication, patient engagement. (e.g. anything that interacts, impact, engages with the clinician, patient, end-user).

Afternoon parallel sessions

In the afternoon, we will offer two parallel sessions that aligns with two of the four medical LiU Strategic Areas (Note: the other two: LiU Cancer and Medical Inflammation and Infection Center (MIIC) will be featured at BME@LiU 2024). You do not need to be an active member of these Strategic Areas to present in these sessions.

  1. Circulation and Cardio-Metabolic Risk Factors (CircM): The purpose of the network is to stimulate and strengthen research within the area of circulation and cardiovascular metabolic risk factors with the aim of improving prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
  2. Neuroscience and Neurobiology: Center for Systems Neurobiology is a strategic effort to help form bridges between basic neurosciences and clinical medicine.

Preliminary program overview


Presentation options/formats

Oral presentations

Oral presentations are structured in two distinct formats:

  1. Individual research presentations: Short research presentations (~10-15 mins), delivered by a single speaker, for a broad audience. This format is geared toward highlighting new ideas, discoveries, innovations, and methods.
  2. Joint research presentations: These are slightly longer format talks (~20-30 min) that provide two "perspectives" and/or contributions on addressing a research challenge. These will have two speakers from different disciplines (e.g. Basic Science + BME, BME + Clinical research, Academia + Industry). This format is geared toward highlighting collaborative, multidisciplinary efforts.


All are welcome to submit poster presentations. These can be research group overviews or individual research projects. Students at all levels (PhD, Master's, Bachelor's) are encouraged to submit posters on their projects even if results are not ready. This is intended as a forum to present ideas and receive feedback on your respective projects. "Gymnasiearbete" students are also welcome to present their work and interact with participants.

Research Arena

Companies, Research Centers, Initiatives, and Forums are welcome to reserve tables distributed throughout the Poster Area, for free. Here, you can showcase and share what resources, technologies, and opportunities you have to offer the greater LiU community. Additional resources may be available from the committee on a first-come, first serve basis.

How to submit a presentation?

Register to BME@LiU 2023, indicate the format of your preferred presentation and we will contact you for further submission details. If you would like to have an oral presentation, please submit abstracts before 29.03.23, so the programming committee can evaluate your submission.
