Restoring Vital Functions by Electronics – Achievements, Limitations, Opportunities, and Challenges

Important Announcement

Paper Submission Deadline has been extended to June 13, 2021!


In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, BioCAS 2021 has officially moved to a hybrid conference format. We encourage in-person attendance of the conference but we are also excited to accommodate virtual participation for both authors and attendees who cannot travel to Berlin, Germany. More details will be made available in the next few weeks.

Call for Papers

IEEE BioCAS is a premier international forum for presenting interdisciplinary research and development activities at the crossroads of medicine, life sciences, physical sciences and engineering that shape tomorrow’s medical devices and healthcare systems.

The conference brings together members of our communities to broaden their knowledge in emerging areas at the interface of the life sciences and the circuits and systems engineering.

The three-day single-track program for BioCAS 2021 is multidisciplinary in topics including but not limited to:

Biomedical Technologies

  • Assistive, Rehabilitation, and Quality of Life Technologies
  • Biofeedback,  Neuromodulation, and
    Closed-Loop Systems
  • Bio-Inspired and Neuromorphic Circuits and Systems
  • Biosensor Devices and Interface Circuits
  • Biotelemetry and Energy Harvesting/Scavenging Circuits and Systems

Call for Tutorials

The IEEE BioCAS 2021 Organization Committee invites proposals for Tutorials to be conducted on October 7, 2021, the first day of the 2021 IEEE Biomedical Circuits and Systems Conference (IEEE BioCAS 2021) in Berlin, Germany. Each tutorial presentation should last ~1.5 hours, including Q&A.

Tutorials are an integral function of the IEEE BioCAS Conference where presenters have the opportunity to share their expertise on a specific topic with fellow researchers and those who wish to discover this topic.

We are soliciting proposals for topics of academic and industrial/applied interests. These topics may be established or may be emerging, with profound and/or new insights that are best articulated by means of an oral presentation. Most importantly, tutorials should be interesting, with lively interaction with the attendees –interesting and fun!

IEEE BioCAS 2021 is particularly interested in tutorial topics related to the conference theme: Intelligent symbiosis of man and machine to improve health.

Tutorial Proposals

Please submit your tutorial proposal by email to all Tutorial Co-Chairs, with copy to Conference Manager, Kerstin Bonicard. The proposal should include a (maximum) two-page description of the tutorial (see below for details) and one-page professional biography of you that highlights your qualifications, track record in the proposed subject area of the tutorial, and relevant previous tutorial/keynote/invited talks. Your two-page tutorial proposal should contain the following information:

  • Title and Abstract: Propose a title and an abstract that allows conference attendees to quickly and accurately understand the subject matter of the tutorial.
  • Motivation and Focus: Explain why your topic is important to the BioCAS community and what you hope the participants will learn by attending your tutorial. In this section, please provide a syllabus outlining the content of the tutorial and the learning outcomes. This syllabus should be realistic, given the 1.5 hours available.
  • Basic Structure of the Tutorial: In this section, please describe your proposed use of the available time (~1.5 hours, including Q&A).
