Medical Electronics Symposium 2015 September 16 & 17, 2015 MARYLHURST UNIVERSITY • PORTLAND, OR Oregon Bioscience Association SMTA, INEMI, MEPTEC and OregonBio have joined forces to again host this inter- national conference, focus- ing on advances in electronic technologies and advanced manufacturing, specifically targeting medical and biosci - ence applications. Last year's conference attracted about 200 attendees and more than 30 exhibitors. Prior to last year, MEPTEC's and SMTA's con - ferences were held in Phoenix, Arizona and Milpitas, Califor- nia, respectively, drawing tech- nology experts, entrepreneurs and service providers that work in this niche technology space. Typical applications within this space involve implantable defi - brillators, neurostimulators and drug delivery, interventional catheters, pillcams, ultrasound transducers, hearing aids, bio- sensors, microfluidics, wireless communications, as well as future diagnostic and treatment solutions that may use stretch- able electronics, microelectro- mechanical systems (MEMS) or nanoelectromechanical sys- tems (NEMS). ◆ Marylhurst University, founded in 1893, is Oregon's oldest Catholic university, and the first liberal arts college for women established in the Northwest. Multiple Track Topics Include: n Track 1: Components and Designs for High-Density Medical Electronics This track will focus on advances in electronics components and designs that can make current medical electronics ever more miniaturized with more functionality and at lower power. n Track 2: Solutions for Medical Electronics Assembly and Volume Manufacturing This track will focus on critical methods and protocols to ensure that the production of Class II and III medical electronics is conducted in the most effective, efficient and quality-controlled way with full traceability and zero defects. n Track 3: Next Generation Microelectronics for Changing Healthcare Markets This track will focus on advances in next generation, revolutionary microelectronics for medical devices and applications that solve technology challenges and are aligned with solutions for new healthcare models.
