General Information

The International Microwave Biomedical Conference (IMBioC) is as an international forum for the exchange of ideas and information on state-of-the-art research in microwave and RF theory and techniques that bridge the science and engineering gap as applied to biological systems. This conference is an ideal forum for sharing new ideas on emerging techniques and applications.

The 2018 IMBioC will be part of the Microwave Week in parallel to IMS2018 (International Microwave Symposium), RFIC 2018 (Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits Symposium) and ARFTG 2018 (Microwave Measurement Conference) in Philadelphia. 

Introducing Philadelphia

Philadelphia, the fifth largest city in the U.S., is conveniently located between New York City and Washington, D.C. (only 1.5 hours from New York City and two hours from Washington, D.C.).  Known for its history, arts and culture, vibrant street life, world-class restaurants and outdoor life, Philadelphia offers a budget-friendly metropolitan experience for all travelers.

Discover Philadelphia, a modern renaissance city where history meets innovation and culture.
