As a part of national education system, which has the objective to develop the intellectual life of the nation through human resources development by conducting three main activities known as tri dharma (three duties), Faculty of Engineering is also committed to continuously improve its academic activities in teaching and learning process, scientific research, and community services. This commitment would be also in line with the consideration of high demand to produce quality graduates and following current trends toward the global competition.
To achieve one of the three duties endowed by the national education system, especially in order to accelerate the advancement of technology and research in the field of biomedical engineering, integrated thinking of the researchers from various educational institutions and biomedical research is required. Currently, there have been various discoveries and or research in medical engineering areas from higher education and or research institutions, however the results are lacking of coordination that can be pinpoint to a specific direction. In order to accommodate this idea, a symposium is needed primarily to conduct discussions for positive collaboration with all biomedical researchers equally and mutually.
International Symposium on Biomedical Engineering (ISBE) would be an annual event initiated by the Center for Biomedical Engineering, Universitas Indonesia (RCBE UI). The event is organized in order to improve the communication of science, research, and technology among students, faculty, and researchers in Indonesia and abroad who study and or have career in the field of biomedical engineering. This International Symposium on Biomedical Engineering would be one of the ways to strengthen biomedical agenda in Indonesia with international relationship. The event will be held on 22 – 24 July, 2019 at Padang, Indonesia featuring many interested papers. Proceeding and selected papers will be planned to be submitted to reputable Proceeding Publisher (AIP) and internationally accredited journals in Biomedical Engineering, respectively.
