10th International Conference on Ethics

In Biology, Engineering & Medicine

Conference Date:   November 13-14, 2021

Welcome from the Conference Chair

I am pleased to welcome you to the Tenth International Conference on Ethics in Biology, Engineering & Medicine. Our goal is to bring together biomedical engineers, scientists, clinicians, dentists, philosophers, lawyers, students, and representatives from industry to discuss how to pave the way for safe and ethical advancement of implants, devices, drugs, and other technologies to improve the quality of life for our patients. The papers to be presented represent a broad spectrum of topics reflecting the exciting, but sometimes controversial nature of many of our innovations.

This conference is sponsored by the University of Washington. It is co-sponsored by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, University of Washington-Bothell, Seattle University, Florida International University, International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), The American College Dentists, Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (IFMBE), Sigma Xi and several other societies, institutions, and companies.

Many people contributed to the success of this conference. I would like to thank the Keynote speakers, invited lecturers, the authors, session moderators, and the staff. The speakers are also encouraged to submit their papers for publication in Ethics in Biology, Engineering and Medicine: An International Journal. I am sure that you shall find this conference intellectually stimulating and a highly enjoyable experience.

Owing to the prevalent COVID-19 pandemic we have moved this meeting online. As some of you know, this conference was originally scheduled to be held in April 2020 and due to the COVID-19 pandemic related restrictions for meetings, this was postponed to April 2021. However, as the pandemic related restrictions continued, this meeting was finally rescheduled to our present conference dates and all times in the Program are for the Pacific Time Zone. The links for registration and joining the meetings shall be sent to everyone by e mail.
