Call for Abstracts

At ELAINE 2020, we kindly invite the growing community of researchers, engineers and medical practitioners from around the world working in the field of electrically active implants, with focus on brain, bone and cartilage stimulation, to submit abstracts for presentation. The conference will serve as a platform for interdisciplinary scientific exchange and networking opportunities with experts, researchers, and up-and-coming leaders in the field of engineering, medicine and life sciences.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Multi-scale modelling and simulation
• Therapeutic and regenerative electrical stimulation
• Tissue regeneration
• Energy harvesting
• Bioactive implants
• Electrical conductive and piezoactive materials

The aim is to discuss the latest achievements in the field in form of invited talks, selected talks from submitted abstracts and poster sessions. With a workshop we also want to address the current topics of open source, data management, reproducibility and provenance. In addition, we particularly invite critical reviews and contributions with negative results or unsuccessful replications to foster the scientific discussion. We explicitly encourage young scientists to contribute and submit their work.

We cordially invite you to participate and submit an abstract for either oral or poster presentation.
