On behalf of the International Program Committee and the National Organizing Committee it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 12th IFAC Symposium on Biological and Medical Systems in Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany.
It is the third time that this IFAC symposium will be hosted in Germany after Karlsburg/ Greifswald in 2000, and Berlin as BMS 2015. Similar to Berlin the Symposium in Schwenningen in 2024 will be a joint event with the German Technical Committee on “Automation in Medicine” which integrates their 17th regular workshop AUTOMED 2024 into the IFAC symposium.
The symposium will address problems in biomedicine, physiology and biology and provides an excellent opportunity to share your newest research with established experts from all over the world.
BMS2024 features four major themes (among others) to provide latest results in context of personalized medicine and personalized diagnostic and therapeutic processes:
- Digital Twin models for therapy optimization and other applications
- Drug delivery systems, modelling, control, and applications
- Intelligent medical devices
- Machine learning in Biomedical processes; e.g., signal and image analysis, data fusion, control
Finally enjoy Swabian hospitality and food in September 2024 in one of the most beautiful regions of Germany the “Black Forest” in the neighbourhood of Villingen-Schwenningen.
A hearty welcome to you!
