Blogging from the BioEM2014 meeting in Cape Town

Blogging from the BioEM2014 meeting in Cape Town

This year, meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society (BEMS) and the European BioElectromagnetics Association (EBEA) – the BioEM2014 – will take place in Cape Town, South Africa, June 8-13, 2014. The full program of the meeting and erratum are available for download.
I will be there and, as last year at the BioEM2013 meeting in Thessaloniki, Greece, I will be posting blogs, directly from the Cape Town.
Besides the blogging, I will hold an one hour plenary discussion seminar ‘Ethical and social issues in bioelectromagnetics research‘ (see p. 34 of the full program). The abstract of my presentation, will form the basis for the subsequent discussion, is as follows:
Ethics and Conflict of Interest in Bioelectromagnetics
The Institute of Medicine of The US National Academies defines Conflict of Interest (CoI) as ”a set of circumstances that creates a risk that professional judgment or actions regarding a primary interest will be unduly influenced by a secondary interest”.
