2015 Organizing Committee


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The IUPESM World Congress (WC) on Medical Physics (MP) and Biomedical Engineering (BME) comes but once every three years. WC2015 will be in Toronto from June 7-12. This WC will be the largest gathering of MPs and BMEs from 86 countries. In looking at the content of the meeting, it occurs to me that this is truly a unique opportunity to discuss important Global issues, e.g., Global Health, Food and Water Safety, Environmental toxins, Personalized Medicine, Brain-Machine interfaces, Education and Outreach, etc. When together, we will be able to discuss the Global Challenges we face now and those our children will face. We are working with WHO to address many of these issues. Do you want to work with WHO? In addition to WHO, we collaborate with other international organizations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in improving global health and safety in medicine. I am therefore calling for new abstract and paper submissions to WC2015 that will be aligned with our 19 Scientific Program tracks, but, in addition will address the Global Challenges within these tracks. In addition, I am looking for novel models of BME and MP academic and training programs. I am also looking for novel Outreach programs. Your abstracts and papers will receive the same peer review and accepted full papers will be published in the same World Congress Proceedings.

Working in Peru, these past few months, on creating a new BME undergraduate curriculum, I have come to understand the potential economic engine fueling the development of nations that results from education MPs and BMEs. Education is essential, but scientific and engineering education can accelerate the nation development. In many developing countries, there are no physicists or engineers in clinical settings; in developed nations, physicists and engineers are losing their positions in hospitals. This is becoming a serious issue all over the world. Therefore, we are calling a Summit on the Future of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. We invite abstracts and papers that will address this issue.


All of the above will be at WC2015!
What about you? You need to be there!

The World Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics Leaders’ Summit is the inaugural tri-annual high-level policy meeting dedicated exclusively to furthering the role of biomedical engineering and medical physics in medicine.  This unique event brings together key decision makers, academics, and practicing engineers and physicists from around the globe and encourages timely debate on emerging issues related to the development and sustainability of the role and impact of medical physicists and biomedical engineers in medicine and healthcare.  The Summit provides a unique and important forum to secure a coordinated, multileveled global response to the need, demand, and importance of creating and supporting strong academic and clinical teams of biomedical engineers and medical physicists for the benefit of human health.

 Key Objectives of the Leaders’ Summit:

  • Raising awareness among leading decision makers to ensure the role of biomedical engineering and medical physics is recognized as a local, regional, and global health priority.
  • Providing a forum to exchange information and innovative ideas on how to create and sustain academic and clinical programs in medical physics and biomedical engineering.
  • Creating a force that galvanizes the leadership and decision-makers in academia, industry, and medicine to assure the role of these two translational and impactful disciplines expand their impact on human health.
  • Defining compelling messages to support the critical role that biomedical engineers and medical physics play in supporting and advancing human health.

The 2015 Summit will take place in the afternoon of the 11th of June 2015 in Toronto, Ontario at the 2015 World Congress of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering.
