BMES National Conference

Every year, members from UIUC travel to the BMES National Conference, the largest event in the Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering fields, with over 4,000 researchers, clinicians and professionals in attendance. 

There are a wide range of opportunities available to undergraduates who attend, including presenting original research, networking with universities and companies, and learning about the most recent advances in their field. 

If you plan to present your research, whether it be from an REU or research on campus, the abstract portal is open from July 15th-July 30th! Apply to present at the conference here. If you are visiting the BMES 2019 abstract submission site for the first time, you must make a new account before submitting.

Whether presenting or not, please email Caroline Fatina at by July 30th if you are interested in attending so that we can reserve hotel rooms. In addition, register here before September 4th to get the earlybird price. Once you have registered, send a screenshot of the confirmation email to Caroline. She will be in contact about potential ways to get reimbursed for the registration fee of $250. If you have already registered for the conference, you can sign up to volunteer and receive money back towards your registration fee here.
