The World Association for Chinese Biomedical Engineers (WACBE) organises biannual World Congresses. The first congress was held at Taipei in December 2002; the second was held at Beijing in September 2004; and the third was held at Bangkok in July 2007, and the fourth was held at Hong Kong in July 2009. All the four congresses brought together many biomedical engineers from all over the world to share their experiences and to exchange views on the future development of biomedical engineering. The 5th WACBE World Congress on Bioengineering 2011 in Tainan will continue to offer such a networking forum for bioengineers to keep abreast of the latest development of the field.

Topics to be presented in the Congress will cover all related areas in bioengineering. Special symposia will be arranged in the following tracks:
  • Biomaterials, Tissues Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  • Biomedical Imaging, Signal Processing, and Health Informatics
  • Biosensors, Bionanotechnology and Medical Devices
  • Cellular, Genomic and Biomolecular Engineering
  • Pharmaceutical Science & Biotechnology
  • Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine and Clinical Engineering
Apart from the scientific programs including invited plenary and keynote speeches, special symposia, free paper presentations, and product exhibition, student activities and social programs are also available for attendees and their guests.

Participants at the congress will include young and experienced biomedical engineers, physicians and scientists working in research institutions, universities and hospitals, medical device manufacturers, as well as students in this field. The WACBE World Congress 2011 will be a memorable event for colleagues and friends from all over the world to establish friendship, to promote academic exchanges at an international level and to promote the interests of biomedical engineers.
