The 6th European Conference of the International Federation for Medical and Biological Engineering (MBEC 2014) will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 7th to 11th September 2014. This conference continues the series of well-known European IFMBE Conferences held in Budapest in 2011, Antwerp in 2008, Prague in 2005, and two times in Vienna in 2002 and 1999.

The general theme of MBEC 2014 is "Towards new horizons in biomedical engineering". The conference program will consist of plenary/keynote lectures, symposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and poster sessions, and exhibitions. MBEC 2014 will be a great opportunity for an exchange of ideas and presentation of the latest developments in all areas within the field of biomedical engineering. All papers will be peer reviewed; accepted full-length (4 page) papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings that will be published in IFMBE Proceedings Series.

Dubrovnik, the host city of the MBEC 2014, is considered to be one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world. Located at the far south of Croatia, Dubrovnik is known as "the pearl of the Adriatic" because of its unique beauty and outstanding architecture. A town of an exceptionally rich historical and cultural heritage and preserved monumental architecture, Dubrovnik was among the first sites to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979.

The MBEC 2014 will take place in the newly renovated Hotel Dubrovnik Palace, the 5 star hotel that has it all: high-tech conference rooms, spectacular sea views from every room, superb gastronomy and a luxurious wellness and spa centre.

We are looking forward to hosting you in Dubrovnik in September 2014!
