II Latin-American Conference on Bioimpedance – CLABIO

II Latin-American Conference on Bioimpedance – CLABIO

Montevideo, Uruguay – September 30 – October 02, 2015


Chair: Prof. Franco Simini

Co-chair: Prof. Pedro Bertemes Filho



The First CLABIO took place in Joinville (Brazil) on November 2012 and was supported by the State University of Santa Catarina (UDESC), International Society of Electrical Bioimpedance (ISEBI), International of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Institute of Physics (IOP), Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Level Education (CAPES), Santa Catarina State Foundation for Research Support (FAPESC) and Technological Institute of Joinville (FITEJ). Prof. Pedro Bertemes-Filho was the Chair of the conference. It was submitted more than 100 original full papers from over 7 countries in the World. The articles were per-reviewed and published in the Journal of Physics: Conference Series (http://iopscience.iop.org/1742-6596/407/1).

CLABIO 2015 – II Latin American Conference on Bioimpedance is promoted such that research groups on Electrical Bioimpedance from Latina America and the Caribbean may share experiences with other groups from all over the world, mainly from Latin America, by presenting their scientific works and potential innovations in this research area. The social events and networking opportunities will be part of an informal get together in the Uruguayan style, in Springtime (September). The works may cover a broad range in Biomedical Engineering and Computing, Medical Physics and Medical Sciences, Environment, Biology and Chemistry. In addition CLABIO 2015 intends to give students and research groups the time and space to learn more on Bioimpedance as an important tool in biological material characterization and also in diagnosis.

CLABIO 2015 is supported by IFMBE (International Federation on Medical and Biological Engineering), IEEE Uruguayan Chapter and a number of Regional and National Scientific Societies. Furthermore, the ISEBI (International Society of Electrical Bioimpedance) is also supporting the Conference. It is important to mention that the organizers are part of the body of professors, technicians and students from both the Uruguayan University (Universidad de La Republica) and the Brazilian State University of Santa Catarina (UDESC) and are responsible for the full organization of the event as well as for supporting most of the Invited Lectures.

The articles for presentation at the Conference will be reviewed by an international technical committee of expert referees. The abstracts will be published in the Conference book and the proceedings containing the full papers will be published in a peer reviewed journal. All papers should be prepared following the IFMBE standard format (dowload the template here).

The authors of the works receiving a high rated evaluation during the review process will be invited to produce an extended version to be submitted to the Journal of Electrical Bioimpedance and will be considered for publication under the journal guidelines.
