We have the pleasure to invite you to the 7th International Conference “Biomaterials, Tissue Engineering & Medical Devices” BIOMMEDD’2016 which will be held in Constanta (Romania) from September 15th to 17th, 2016.
The aim of this event is to bring together scientists from biomaterials, medical devices and tissue engineering research with clinicians from medical fields who use in clinical practice the implants and prostheses made from various biomaterials. Clinicians from different specialties (dentistry, orthopedics, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, cardiovascular, aesthetic, and general surgery) will be here to present their results on the clinical performance of current medical devices and debates on the translation of biomaterials and tissue engineering research into clinical practice. The choice of the keynote speakers will bring on stage home some of the best scientist from the field of biomaterials, tissue engineering and medical devices.
The value of the scientific program is supported by the presence of many important scientists from all over the world working on the field of biomaterials and tissue engineering. The conference will also host scientific sessions dedicated to biomaterials, tissue engineering, bioengineering, and a workshop dedicated to SME’s & Research Opportunities in the Field of Biomaterials and Medical Devices. Also, during the conference will be organized some special seminars dedicated to the Bioceramics and Biocomposites, and to the Materia-Spirit in the Treatment of Medical Disorders.
Round table discussions intended to promote interdisciplinary research projects will be organized and a technical exhibition will run in parallel with the scientific sessions.
The conference will also host a Young Scientists Forum who could promote new ways of communicating and thinking on the research and educational aspects, and the General Assembly of the Romanian Society for Biomaterials.
Welcome to Constanta!

Call for Papers
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are invited and should be submitted using the online abstract submission system. Before submit the abstract, you need to register first (using Registration Form). All abstracts will be refereed and a criterion of rejection will be lack of originality. Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt. A condition of submission is that if accepted one of the authors will present at the conference. Authors must follow the instructions for abstract(s) submission using the conference website tools. Intending author should submit an abstract of no more than 150 words. The abstracts will be published in the conference program. Each presenting author can submit a maximum of two abstracts, but can be co-authors for an unlimited number of abstracts. Please email the secretariat with details of any revisions or queries. All accepted full papers (4-6 pages / paper) will be published by Trans Tech Publication in the periodical “Key Engineering Materials” as BIOMMEDD 2016 Proceeeding.

Young Scientist Forum (YSF-RO)
The YSF-RO is an event, aimed at discussing biomaterials education and training, emphasizing the existing and emerging career, as well as research opportunities in the field. The main goal is to promote interactions between young scientists in the pre-doctoral and early post-doctoral stages. YSF-RO events discussion is fostered by creating an interactive environment amongst participants, thus promoting an enriching discussion on topics that concern everyone who graduated, or will do so, in biomaterials. During the YSF-RO session the participants will have a possibility to present their work as rapid-fire presentations (5 min) and as posters. Poster sessions and social events will provide opportunities for informal discussions. We therefore especially encourage scientists at the beginning of their academic career to submit contributions for YSF-RO.
