Acoustics and Engineering Meet Biomedicine

American and European experts in acoustics and bio-engineering will present novel approaches on the emerging biomedical field of audible acoustic measurements and analysis during a symposium 8-9 September at Purdue University in West Lafayette.

According to the report from the Purdue News Bureau, breakthroughs in the field of sonic measurements and analysis are leading to new medical treatments in critical care; heart-related issues; sleep disorders; orthopedic and sports injuries; ear, nose and throat maladies; hearing problems; and speech disorders.

The conference will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the Martin C. Jischke Hall of Biomedical Engineering.

Presenters include researchers from Canada, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, as well as key universities in the United States, including Purdue, Dartmouth College, Boston University, Binghamton University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Chicago.

While the symposium's registration is free, students and researchers are asked to register before a 15 July deadline. Deadline for abstract submissions of poster presentations is 1 July.
